Agoro Sare School dominates Nyanza regional football

Agoro Sare High School became the new kings in Nyanza regional football as they thwarted the efforts of Kisumu Day in clinching the region’s football title.

The two schools locked horns in the finals to contest the Nyanza regional football tournament held at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University grounds, where Agoro Sare made a thin lead over Kisumu Day in the penalties after a goalless draw in the regular time.

In the past, Kisumu Day was the region’s all-time best team, having won the tourney the most times. It was sweet revenge for Agoro Sare, who lost to Kisumu Day in last year’s championship on a 0-2 score line.

The two schools were among the other four who were placed in the ‘group of death, which included St. Mary’s Yala, Masara, Agoro Sare, and Kisumu Day as they headed to the tournament.

Agoro Sare showcased their might and talent as they beat Yala Boys, Usenge, and later Kisumu Day in the finals to claim the title.

On the other hand, the Lwak Girls football team sunk the region’s defending champions, Nyakach Girls, as they beat them 2-0 in penalties despite one of their players getting a red card in the first half of play. The Nyakach girls lost four of the shootouts to grant Lwak a win for the title.

During the 2019 tournament, the two girls’ football teams met in the finals, where Nyakach knocked out Lwak in penalties after a 1-1 draw in regular time.

The two new champions will represent the Nyanza region in the National games in case the petition filed against Agoro Sare by Kisumu Day is revoked.
