Wazalendo Derby

The rugby 10s match between Wazalendo senior and Wazalendo junior was preceded by two rugby 7s matches, one between Wazalendo senior A and Wazalendo senior B which ended in a 10-10 draw. Moses, Sean, Mike Ochieng Nyando ‘Rapogi’ and Ian Wanyonyi were all on target for their respective sides.

In the second rugby 7s match, pitting Wazalendo Senior vs Wazalendo junior, Rino Nabutola opened the scoring for the seniors with a massive hit down the left wing and he was gone for the try. Both Rapogi and Ian Wanyonyi were on target as the half ended 15-0 in favour of the seniors.

Bildad Ogeta registered Wazalendo junior’s first try of the match in the second half, showing great strength and speed to score. The game ended 15-5 in favour of Wazalendo senior, who were kept scoreless in the second half.

Things got off to an interesting start, when the rugby 10s match between Wazalendo senior and Wazalendo junior commenced. Bildad Ogeta scoring barely a minute into the match, to get the juniors ahead.

The first half had no other scores, and as the two teams went into the break it was Wazalendo junior that was 5-0 up. Tides changed in the second half and two quick tries by Rapogi and Mike Mare, put the Wazalendo senior back in control of the match. A late lapse in defence gifted Jacob Silali an opportunity to equalise, ending the game at 10 apiece.

Team doctor, Kiprono, did notable work, tending to the injured.
