KENYA : Lions face Pirates in return leg encounter

By Dann O’were

Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) Lions play Kenyatta University Pirates in a return Premier League tie at Nyayo National Stadium gymnasium this afternoon.

Lions, the East and Central Africa club champions, are out to avenge the shock 83-82 loss to fifth placed Pirates a month ago.

To ensure that no upset is witnessed today, Greg Odera, Tobias Onyango and Paul Oloo must shut out Paul Ojuoga and Griffin Ligare early.

Lions are preparing for the Africa club championships.

University of Nairobi Terrorists, confident after a 66-48 win over Pirates, confront International Christian Centre in a match that could go either way.

UoN Dynamites face a tall order against Sprite Storms, back from Kampala where they claimed the Falcons International Trophy by beating Burundi’s Berco Stars.

Tomorrow, United States International meet leaders Co-operative Bank of Kenya in the pick of the week match that should be a cracker all the way.

It will be the students’ Abel Nson against the rising Co-op star, Bobby Okwako, who demolished ICC last weekend. Fans should expect a good game.

Yana tackle USIU Flames and hope that their good performance is maintained.

In the lower division, Kisumu Lakeside host Don Bosco, Nairobi Pentecostal Church face off against Java Warriors and Strathmore have a date with Lomboritz.

Meanwhile, Kenya were knocked out of the medal brackets in the 15th edition of the African under-18 men’s championship in Durban, South Africa. Kenya’s Maseno High School lost their last two games hence bowed out without posting a win. The event ends tomorrow.

They fell 64-84 to Guinea and 53-83 to Cote d’Ivoire sports hall of the Durban Institute of Technology.
