Maseno School hit Oriwo, Nyanchwa storm to semis

Perennial boys’ basketball champions Maseno School underlined their dominance after they stormed into the semi-finals of the Lake Region games after two convincing wins over Oriwo Boys High School and Nyanchwa Boys High School in the opening day of this year’s edition being held at Homa Bay School.

Despite falling 05-08 to Nyanchwa Boys in the fourth quarter, Maseno made the cut for the semifinals on 64-38 victory thanks to a strong display in the first three quarters.

The seven-time Lake Region champions lay a good marker by overcoming a stubborn Oriwo Boys High School 68-34.

However, team coach Gordon Ogutu feels his side is yet to turn on its winning gear.

“We have played well but at the same time we have failed to reach our targets. We wanted to defeat them by a double score line but they have survived as per the readings on the scoreboard,”a bullish Ogutu told Citizen Digital.

He reckoned that his players are getting better by each game, an element he considers key to their title quest.

“Our game plan is working well as the boys are getting more confident after every game.

Ogutu at the same time sounded a warning to his opponents noting that his boys won’t settle at anything until they hit a century of points.

“We have already qualified for the semis but I want us to do it in style. We want to get there unbeaten so that we sent a strong message to our opponents,” he said rallying his troops to maintain focus ahead of Tuesday’s games as they aim to better their opening day performances.

“I want them to continue working hard because we are doing it the way we should. We want to hit the century mark.”

In the other games, Agoro Sare dropped 90-22 on Nyambaria Boys to hand the Kisii county champions the biggest defeat in this year’s edition.

In girls’ basketball, Ototo Girls overcame a resilient Koru Girls by a 31-12 margin after they scored eleven unanswered points in the fourth quarter.
