Defending champions Equity Hawks will renew their rivalry with Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) in the 2021/2022 Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) Women’s Premier League finals.

This is after the bankers saw off Zetech 63-56 in a closely contested game three playoff semifinals at Nyayo Gymnasium yesterday and consequently complete a 3-0 sweep over the university side.

Equity headed into the match with a 2-0 advantage after their dominant display last weekend saw them win game one and two 50-45 and 66-58 respectively.

The David Maina-coached outfit required a win of any kind to sail through, a feat they achieved with ease and they will now join regular season leaders KPA in the finals with two games to spare.

KPA on Saturday thrashed Storms 83-41 at KPA Makande Gymnasium to complete a 3-0 sweep over the visitors in the semis played in the best of five series.

The dockers also had a 2-0 advantage after taking game one and two 89-61 and 79-33 respectively.

Equity and KPA will clash in another thrilling final set to start end of the month.

As the bankers will be out to avenge their 71-35 finals defeat to the dockers last year at the Fiba-Africa Zone V Club championship, KPA will be seeking to reclaim the title they last won in 2018.
