Finally!! Towards the end of first term, we brought you a live coverage of some games in Nairobi Region’s finals held at Patch. Now, the ultimate challenge is here. Each region is going to be represented by their respective champions in the games. The games take place at two different venues, at Patch and Statoe. Let’s take a look at who meets who in each pool.
On Tuesday 11th, the action begins as each pool seeks top seed. In Basketball girls, Coastal bigwigs Kaya Tiwi are in pool B with Loreto limuru, Tigoi and kirigara. Pool A has a slot for North Eastern region, Buruburu girls (Timberland), Nyamira and St. Bridgids. I can already smell a Buruburu- Kaya Tiwi final here on Saturday when the finals are slotted. In our February magazine, we interviewed BuruBuru girls and they told us their aim is to beat Kaya Tiwi. Will they be up to the task?
And of course there is BB boys where Nairobi’s Upper Hill face off Kisumu boys and Aga Khan in Pool A while in Pool B Laiser Hill face Chavakali and Nyeri Baptist. I really wish for a battle of the Hills in this final but with the way giant’s have been slain all along through regionals to this point, anything can happen. But Uppah are hot. The thoroughly beat Highee to be the Nairobi region champions.
So Rugby. By the way, North Eastern region doesn’t have a representative in Rugby and as such Nairobi region was given two slots so Uppah and patch are in Pool A and B respectively. Bush is in Pool A (It’s in central Region, remember?) and it’s really gonna be interesting. We saw the Nairobi regional Patch take on Uppah and nothing less of tears, sweat and blood, literally. So we expect the same rivalry.
Then of course there’s hockey boys and girls. Nairobi region is represented by Parky Arya and Moi Girls. In Pool A, the mouthy-watering match will actually be between Kerugoya and Sinyolo Girls while in pool B St. Cecilia is on form currently. Ribiero Parklands beat Patch in hockey Boys but the two will be in action again. They will battle it out with Musingu, shimo la tewa and mang’u among others.
As usual, we shall bring to you live all the action via our official Facebook page The Insyder magazine.
In part two we bring you the whole schedule.
