KENYA : Now 2008 Play offs gets underway this weekend

AT last the 2008 Play Off takes off this weekend with one match in Mombasa three in Nairobi.

The only game today is at the Makande Welfare hall where Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) host former four time national champions Co-operative Bank of Kenya in Game One of the premier league semi finals.
This match will be equally balanced with KPA having a slight edge by virture of the fact that they are playing at home. Mike Opel and Musa Odari will lead the way in front of their insatiable fans.
The bankers morale is rock bottom and whether they will rise and be a real challenge to KPA remains to be seen. The team's failure to travel to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for the on going Zone Five qualifiers might play a big role in deciding this match.

Tomorrow, Matches switch to Nyayo National Stadium gymnasium, women leaders Eagle Wings have a date with Sprite Storms while an all Division One play offs that earlier was going to be chaotic until Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) moved in to diffuse the situation.

Blazers had furiosly contested the decission by KBF to lock them out of the post season and replace them with Nairobi pentecostal Church. They produced their records that has now forced KBF to change the fixtures again and earn them what is rightfully theirs.

Unbeaten Posta will now tackle Blazers, who had been replaced by Nairobi Pentecostal Church (NPC) as confusion as to who qualified alongside the mailmen threatened top derail the games. The other match will pit Lomboritz against Mennonites.
There is also the Inter Provincial Play offs at the Baptits High School in Mombasa where the top two will represented the branch in next year's Division One.

Nairobi have sent four teams namely Kenya College of Accountancy (KCA) University Trailblazers, Kenya Polytechnic University and Nairobi Aviation College (NAC). They are expected to play against teams from Coast, Central and Rift Valley.
