Kenya Secondary School Sports Association (KSSSA) Under-19 boys\u2019 football champions St Anthony\u2019s Kitale will take on Tanzania\u2019s Lindi Secondary School in the Federation of East African Secondary Schools Sports Associations (FEASSSA) opening match at Sheikh Abeid Stadium tomorrow. Peter Mayoyo\u2019s side last won the national title in 2012 when they saw off Dagoretti High 5-4 on post-match penalties to lift the gong. This was Mayoyo\u2019s first title with the team since joining the school in 2014. Having lost in the 2017 final and finished third last year, the Rift Valley region side was determined to make it five titles and the gods smiled on them in Kisumu last month just like in 2012. Mayoyo\u2019s charges, however, have their work cut out as they are in Pool A alongside holders Buddo Secondary, who clinched their maiden title last year, following a nail-biting 4-3 triumph on post-match penalties over Rwanda\u2019s Lycee De Kigali. The two sides lock horns on Monday morning. The boys\u2019 football trophy has been a preserve of the Ugandans with St Mary\u2019s Kitende dominating in the last 15 years with 11 titles to their name. Buddo dethroned them in last year\u2019s edition. St Antony\u2019s last won the title in 2002 with the only other Kenyan side to lift the it being Barding Secondary School in 2016 when the games were hosted in Eldoret. Uganda\u2019s Masaka and Standard High School, Zana are the other teams to have won the title in the last 15 years. The other Kenyan representatives, Dagoretti are equally in a tough Pool C that has record winners St Mary\u2019s Kitende, Tanzania\u2019s Ruwuiko and Blantyre Secondary from Malawi. Coached by Joseph Makhoha, the Nairobi region champions are making their debut at the regional games and despite falling to St Antony\u2019s in the national final, they are determined to leave a mark in their first appearance. They open the competition against Ruwuiko on Sunday morning before taking on St Mary\u2019s Kitende on Tuesday. Their last group match is scheduled for Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, girls\u2019 champions Nyakach, runners up Itigo and Arch Bishop Njenga will be tasked with ensuring the title remains in the country. Kenya lifted the it last year through Kwale Girls and Wiyeta in 2017. Itigo are in Pool B that has last year\u2019s losing finalists Kawempe while the other two Kenyan teams are in Pool A that has Uganda\u2019s Mukono High and St Noa as well as Tanzania\u2019s Kihesa.
