St Peter's Mumias are the new Kakamega County Secondary Schools boys under 19 football champions. 

The Saints, as they are fondly referred, edged out Emanani 1-0 in a county final match yesterday at Musingu High School. It was double joy for St Peter's who had retained their under 16 title after beating Koyonzo 2-1 in junior finals. 

Venedine Ambesa's 16th minute goal was enough to see the Saints lift the county trophy. St Peter's had launched their campaign on a high note thrashing Kakamega's Green Commandos 3-0. In the semis, they dismissed Kakamega Township 2-0 while Emanani beat Lugusi 2-1. St Peter's and Emanani booked their places in the Western region games where they will battle for ticket to this year's National Term Two games set for Kisumu next month.

St Peter's under 16 team coach Omondi Mango said they are looking to return to the nationals. "Consistency prepares a team to excel and that is why our main objective is to return to the nationals and win the trophy," said Mango. Last year, St Peter's came close but fell to St Anthony's to settle for second spot.
