KCB Women’s Volleyball team Friday afternoon cruised 3-0 past Nairobi Prisons this evening to move a step closer to qualifying for playoffs in the ongoing Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) league.

The bankers won by sets of 25-14, 25-23 and 25-11 to claim their victory in a league clash played at the Nyayo Stadium Indoor Arena.

KCB coach Japheth Munala started Immaculate Nekesa, Mercy Moim, Mildred Cherop, Lincy Jeruto, Juliana Namutira and Shirleen Maiywa.

The tactician left star player and captain Edith Wisa on the bench as he expects a tougher fixture on Saturday – against DCI.

Speaking after the match, Munala said: “I am very happy for today’s win. We started well in the first half, but the second half was below average. We made a lot of mistakes, especially in our serving and receiving that could have been costly. We rested Captain Wisa because we expect difficult matches tomorrow and Sunday.”

Despite the win, Munala said the team has a lot to work on for the upcoming fixtures.

He conceded the team is not as clinical as it should be considering they have not played since the Club Championships held in Tunisia last month.

“We are still not a hundred percent bearing in mind we have not played competitively for a long time. We take the win, but we are going back to the drawing board to strategize and prepare for the remaining fixtures,” noted Munala.

KCB will resume action on Saturday against DCI who saw off Postbank at the same venue earlier in the day.
