National girls' netball champions Kaya Tiwi School of Kwale stuck to their motto of ‘no mercy’ after they humiliated hapless Lamu’s representatives Lake Kenyatta 90-1 at Coast region Secondary School Term Two ‘A’ games yesterday in Mombasa.

In the lop-sided match that was characterized by drizzles, Dorren Ochient, Meldo Oguda and Margaret Owino  ran rings around the clueless Lamu girls' side.  

In another netball match at Shanzu Teachers Training College, Mwakitawa from Taita Taveta whitewashed Kilifi Mixed School 61-7 in a one sided match while Mombasa’s Miritini beat Tana River’s Sane 41-16.

In boys’ handball, Barani got off well after edging out Shimo La Tewa 9-7. Moses Mamba scored five goals with Kelvin Kalu (2) and Peter Sudi and Moses Mumba scoring also getting into the score sheet for the winners. Nelson Karisa and Salim Chigwele scored five and two respectively for Shimo La Tewa. Lamu’s Mpeketoni defeated Samburu of Kwale 14-8 in another match.

In girls’ handball, Shimba Hills from Kwale dismissed Kajembe of Mombasa 28-4 while Barani of Kilifi drubbed Lamu’s Witu 14-4 even as Shanzu Teacher's Training College and Shimo La Tewa grounds host semi finals today.

Secondary school games continues countrywide, with Eldoret hosting the Rift Valley Term Two A at Hill School and Wareng High School.
