While Nairobi coach George Sunguti was impressed with his boys’ performance, his Kakamega counterpart Anthony ‘Ofek’ Okumu played down their title chances.

“So far I’m impressed with the performance. Though most of my players are making their debut in the competition, we are hoping to reach the finals,” Sunguti told Standard Sports.

Okumu said: “We have gotten the results that we wanted, but the competition seems to very stiff. It’s a bit too early to predict but the best team will win the title.”

In women’s handball, Nairobi overcame Kericho 24-8 while Kajiado beat Kisumu 17-12 in a closely contested match.
