CONGRATULATIONS! to Multimedia university of Kenya for winning the second division plate trophy.
To them, the water is either cold or very cold in short, losing is never an option and this being only their first major tournament of the season, multimedia university seemed not to settle lower than the plate trophy. This was after winning narrowly against Northern suburbs 7-5.
Northern Suburbs took the lead after only six minutes of the game after a mistake caused in the rack that gave scram half Kevin Ojiambo no option but to watch the lose ball stolen by the opponent for a try in the middle that they failed to convert.
MMU came back with a try in the dying minutes of second half through a swift pass to the wing by Don Benzo to a growing youngster winger Calvin Orangi who surprisingly is on his first season with the team then converted by a tactical fly half Bill Mathenge to give MMU a lead.
it’s only their second appearance to this top fry Great Rift 10s a-aside tournament after a disappointing first time debut last year and they have really shown maturity by how they have played. Much credit to their captain Einstein Wamukoya and the whole squad as a whole.
“We are here to win, that’s my agenda, my players have shown improvement on each game and I believe in them,” said their coach Maurice Mbai before the tournament and indeed they delivered.
This was a great start for them and hope it will open ways for their Kenya university sports association(KUSA) which they finished overall at position five last year.
