John Osogo High clinches Busia County Schools soccer title

John Osogo High School from Budalang’i is the new county champion in the Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association Games soccer played over the weekend at Nambale Boys High School.
John Osogo stunned the unbeaten Madende secondary from Nambale Sub County 1-0 in the finals on Saturday to be crowned champions in the match graced by Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba.
The strike by Reakey Sande in the 22nd minute was enough to earn them a ticket for the regional games to be held at Kakamega National School later this month. Madende has also booked a ticket for the regional bonanza.
The two teams have secured a slot to train at Kenya Sports Academy Kasarani for a period of 2 weeks courtesy of Sports CS through the Talanta Hela initiative as they prepare to proceed at the regional level.
