The other last four tie will be a Rwandese affair as 2015 winners GS Indagaburezi lock horns with IPRC Kigali who locked out last year’s finalists St Alloys for a place in Saturday’s final. The semis clashes will set the stage for a Kenya and Rwanda final for a second year following last year’ battle between Kwanthanze and St Alloys, which the Kenyans won in Gulu, Uganda. Kwanthanze, who are eying for a fourth title, finished top of Group A after three wins out of three, while Cheptil were placed second in Group B behind top-placed Indagaburezi.

Laiser Hill, who last won the regional title in 2012, were severely punished after they surrendered a 17-12 first quarter lead as Reine capitalised on home support to win. They overpowered Laiser Hill to take the second quarter 15-6 and secure a narrow 25-23 advantage at halftime. The Kenyans could not fight back allowing their hosts to score in the third quarter 23-12 and fourth 19-12. They they must win today to book their place in tomorrow’s semis. In the girls contest, newcomers Butere chalked up their only victory after beating Rwanda’s Adegi 50-32.
