To: bndong <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Horace Otieno's brace led Mwamba RFC to a popular 17-10 win over Kenya
Harlequin in the Prinsloo Sevens main cup final played at the Nakuru
Athletic Club this afternoon.
Mwamba were first to settle in this high paced match, asking questions of
Quins and were rewarded when Otieno grounded the ball. Kevin Wambua
converted for a 7-0 Mwamba lead. Kulabu would continue to have the upper
hand. Otieno extended their lead with his second try. Wambua missed this
conversion with the score line at 12-0.
Quins finally managed to keep possession, inching into Mwamba territory and
were rewarded with an unconverted Victor Sudi try before the break.

The pace did not drop in the second half with both sides in search of a
breakthrough. Wilson Kopondo's try narrowed the scores to 12-10. Sudi again
missed the conversion with the game finely poised.
With the game wearing on, Mwamba began to see more ball, Steve Okeyo
eventually scoring the all important try with little time left on the clock
. They would come close to adding another try when Kayange gathered George
Mbaye's deft cross kick but was denied short of the tryline.
Mwamba gained 30 points for winning the 24 team Prinsloo Sevens.
*Final score Mwamba 17 Quins 10*
