Secondary School BallGames 2016

Secondary School Ball Games are some exciting times for the Suba Lakers. The girls don't get to play together as a team, but instead they are each playing for their school teams. All of our girls attend schools which have some of the best football teams in our region. Naturally, most of the schools make it though their local play-offs to advance to the next level. The culmination of this is the Regional Tournament. By this point, only the best teams have advanced. 

This year 3 of the 4 teams in the Regional Tournament semi-final round were teams with Suba Lakers. These included Moi Girl Sindo, Jera Secondary School, and Nyakach Girls. Jera, who has dominated girls football in the region for many years, was matched against a tough Sindo team. Sindo won, 2-1. Nyakach took on Ekinyoro to win 1-0. 

The finals brought together Nyakach vs. Sindo. On the Nyakach team we have 5 Suba Lakers; Lilian Awour (GK), Winnie Ogola, Eunice Konguru, Florence Wangoi, Lencer Adoyo and Maurine Owiti. For Moi Girls Sindo the Suba Lakers are represented by Lydia Awino, Brenda Sharon, and Christine Achila. It was a tough match which ended 0-0 in regulation time. The Champion was determined by penalty kicks. With Suba Laker Lilian in the goal for Nyakach, she didn’t allow anything into her net. Nyakach won 1-0.


Sindo and Nyakach will both proceed to Nationals to be held in Kisumu. Two slots are permitted since Lake Region is the host for Nationals. This year we will have the largest showings of Suba Lakers at Secondary School Ball Games Nationals with 9 girls representing the club. We are so proud of these girls for their success on the field, but also for their character and leadership among their teams.
