Kenya are this year’s champions for the East Africa Challenge Trophy to make it the ninth time they had won the trophy.

The team captained by Francis Kimani resisted a stiff challenge to win the regional title at the Arusha Gymkhana.

Kenya entered the final day leading by just a single point over host nation Tanzania up to the end of the foursome matches.

Kenya had won all the foursome matches while Tanzania managed to post three out of the four matches to trail the neighbours by a point.

Kenya collected eleven points adding to their overnight score of seven points as Tanzania had ten.

The afternoon session was the most unpredictable as matches extended up to darkness as each team pressed hard for points. Perhaps the most interesting matches of all that pulled many spectators was between Adam Abbas and Nuru Mollel versus Kenyan duo of David Opatti and J. Karanja.

The Tanzanian duo was leading by a hole up to the par four 14th and then all square duo to the par five 17th.

The Tanzanian team needed to post victories in all of the singles matches in today’s final round.

The title contention had been narrowed to a two horse race as Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi have been performing poorly dishing out points to Kenya and Tanzania players.

Holders Uganda were completely out of contention as their team that won the regional title last year in Kigali has all of its members turn professionals. joyeria pandora joyeria pandora
