Defending champions Kenya Pipeline have one hand on the trophy after they beat Prisons Services in the national volleyball play-offs at Makande Indoor Gymnasium in Mombasa.
The oil merchants confirmed their superiority when they beat their arch-rivals 3-0 (25-19, 25-19, 25-15) to maintain their unbeaten run.
Pipeline will meet fast-improving Western Bombers while Kenya Prisons have a date with Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) today.
In yesterday’s match, Prisons and Pipeline both paraded classy line ups. Janet Wanja, Violet Makuto, Leonidas Kasaya and Aggripina Kundu were outstanding for Pipeline while experienced Mercy Moim, Evelyn Makuto and Judith Tarus exhibited their skills to their credit.
In an earlier match at the same venue, KCB enhanced their chances of finishing among the top three sides after recovering from their Friday loss against champions Kenya Pipeline (3-0) to record their first win 3-1(25-17,23-25,25-19,25- 9) over play-off debutants Western Bombers.
The three-day tournament concludes today and Kenya Volleyball Federation will fete the winners. [Ernest Ndunda]
