After failing to proceed to the quarterfinals of the Rugby 7s World Cup, in Cape Town South Africa, the Kenya 7s rugby team went into the 9-16th playoffs with their pride on the line.
Off the mark, the Kenyans were quick, just afew minutes into the game, Herman Humwa crushed through the defence line and the big man ran close to 60 metres, and scored a try under the posts. The ensuing conversion was an easy one for Samuel Oliech, taking the scores to 7-0.
Afew minutes later, the Kenyans came knocking again, and their determination paid off as Billy 'The Kid' Odhiambo landed an unconverted try at the corner.
Vincent Onyala 'The Gazelle ' who has scored in all Kenya 7s matches at this year's world cup, was at it again, showing tremendous pace on the outside, to go past acouple of opponents before scoring a stunner. Oliech did well to convert, for a 17-0 lead at the break.
The second half was less eventful, with Captain Oyoo scoring a try, which was converted, before Scotland landing a consolation try through Kaleem Baretto.
Kenya face England in the Challenge trophy final at 6.59pm local time.
