Kenya 50 Mauritius 5

Kenya got their Olympic qualification campaign in the Africa Sevens off to the best possible start with a resounding 50-5 win over Mauritius in Johannesburg this morning (14 November).

Although initially conceding a early try, Shujaa soon took control of the game, scoring three unanswered tries through Willy Ambaka, Billy Odhiambo and Andrew Amonde.

Eden Agero converted all three for a 21-5 lead at the interval.

Odhiambo landed his brace after the restart and tries from Collins Injera, Biko Adema, Jeff Oluoch and Frank Wanyama with three conversions ensured the victory.

Kenya 27 Senegal 0

In their next game, a less inspiring display saw Kenya register their second successive win, beating Senegal 27-0.

Collins Injera and Billy Odhiambo scored unconverted tries before Biko Adema converted Jeff Oluoch’s try to take a 17-0 lead into the interval.

Handling errors from both teams blighted the second half, but two unconverted tries from Frank Wanyama and Oscar Ayodi all but secured a quarterfinal berth with a game to spare.

Kenya 46 Madagascar 0

In Kenya’s final game of the day, Madagascar found themselves 17 points down by the interval after tries from Frank Wanyama and Eden Agero before Agero converted Injera’s try.
