Kenya: School's Action - Pangani Beat St George's to Top Pool 'B'

Nairobi — Pangani Girls maintained their unbeaten run in the Nairobi Secondary Schools girls' league by winning two of their Pool B matches and have virtually clinched a place in the semi-finals.

Regina Mwangi scored the lone goal for the former national and provincial champions against St. George's.

She now leads the goal-scoring chart with 14 goals while team-mate Naomi Kyalo has eight and another Pangani player, Laura Gichau, has scored six goals.

In the match against State House Girls, Kyalo scored a hat trick with Mwangi, Lorna Chepkwony and Rosemary Thuo adding one each for a 6-0 win.

Against Precious Blood, Mwangi scored a hat-trick while Gichau added a brace with Chepkwony and Kyalo scoring one each for 7-0 demolition.

State House and Precious Blood battled to a barren draw.

Mildred Awuor and Seruya Achieng scored one goal each for Moi Nairobi Girls who beat Kianda 2-0. Achieng scored the lone goal in the match against Kenya High while the match between State House and Buru Buru Girls was not played.

Kenya High bounced back to beat Kianda 1-0 with Stella Ngugi scoring the lone goal.

After the opening two rounds, Moi Nairobi Girls lead Pool A with 12 points from five matches, three ahead of Hillcrest Secondary, the national and Nairobi Province champions.

Kenya High have six points.

Pangani lead Pool B with 15 points from five matches. St. George's have 12, State House four and Precious Blood two.

In the boy's category, the second round starts on Saturday and Sunday at Jamhuri High School.

Hillcrest Secondary finished top of Pool A ahead of Jamhuri High, Arya and last year's provincial champions Nairobi School. Lenana won in Pool B with Moi Forces Academy, Pumwani and Starehe Boys Centre following in that order.
