Gesero Mixed Secondary School will see both their boys and girls teams contest the Nyanza regional finals after they both came through their oppositions in matches played on Friday 21 June at the Kisumu Day High School grounds in the ongoing School games.

The girls’ team dispatched Hawinga 8-7 on penalties after their tie had ended 1-1 after extra time while the boys’ team sailed through also on penalties, defeating hosts Kisumu Day 5-3 after both teams were tied at 1-1 at the end of 120 minutes.

Other semis

In the other semi-finals, Nyakach Girls ended their bad run of form against Nyanza Region football giants Koballa with a 1-0 over the Homa Bay side while 2016 East African champions Barding only needed a goal to dispatch a very strong Awasi Boys team.

Nyakach, who had lost to Koballa on penalties in their previous two meetings, got their lone goal through Ivy Chepkirui.

Nyakach will now face off against Gesero in the girls’ final with the boys’ final seeing Barding go toe to toe with Gesero.
