On the championship day, our girls exuded much confidence with the home fans surrounding the field and supporting them enthusiastically. From the opening kick of the Finals against defending champs Nairobi Metropolitan, the Lake Region girls controlled the ball possession and displayed great teamwork. Their good play resulted in 4 great chances to score in the opening half, but each time they created a chance, a very talented and aggressive Goalkeeper from Nairobi Metropolitan thwarted their bid. As the 2nd half played out, Nairobi resorted to kicking balls out and feigning injuries to waste time. Regulation time ended with a scoreless draw and the game went for 20 minutes of extra time. As the players from both teams got worn down physically, scoring chances opened up, but the two goalkeepers proved up to the challenge. The match ended without a goal, so it would be up to post-match penalty kicks to determine the National Champion.
It was a magical moment for all of Lake Region to stake their claim as the National Champions in the Primary School Ball-games for both the girls and the boys!
