In the Homabay County tournament, the Mbita team included Suba Lakers Siska Verah, Mourine Owiti, Felistas Atieno and Florence Wangoi and were coached by Paul Diela and Dave Gombe. This team was a force to be reckoned with. In the first game the Mbita team won 1-0 on a goal from Siska and then drew 0-0 with Ndhiwa which featured Suba Laker defender Lencer Adoyo. Mbita topped the group and entered the semifinals against Rachuonyo North. Mbita led 1-0 after another goal from Siska Verah. They kept the lead until 4 minutes before the final whistle when Rachuonyo equalized on a debatable non-call from an off-sides position. Unfortunately the Mbita team lost in the penalty shoot-out to get knocked out.
We are proud of Lencer, Apeto and the Lake Region girls for once again reaching the National Finals for the 4th time in the past 5 years.
Congrats to our Laker girls and the entire Lake Region Team! It has been a great season!
