Kenya A maintained their dominance over Zambia with 9-6 win in a thrilling Kenya International Championships 17-goal match at Manyatta Polo Club, Gilgil on Saturday.

Kenya beat the Central Africa side when they last met in the Lusaka International Championships in 2019. 

There was no match last year due to a ban on sporting activities globally due to Covid-19.

A similar feat was achieved by the national women team who overcame their Zambian counterparts in the same tournament (Lusaka International Championships) in Lusaka two weeks ago.

Kenya’s Tiva Gross was voted the Most Valuable Player(MVP) at the Lusaka International Championships.

On Saturday, Kenya dominated in the first three chukkas and scored four goals with no reply through captain and handicap 5.0  Casimir Gross who hit a hattrick with handicap 4 Jammie Murray returning the fourth goal in the six chukka match.

Mark Coventry and Ian Robinson replied for the Zambians in the first two chukkas as Archie Voorspuy increased the tally for the homeboys in the third chukka before Kenya went on rampage in the fourth and sixth chukkas.

In the two chukkas (fourth and sixth), Craig Millar (one), Murray (one) both in fourth chukka and Archie Voorspuy and Millar returned two more goals in the final chukka to crown the day in style against the Zambians.

Robinson reduced the deficit with a double for the visitors in the third chukka.
