Kenya Prisons inch closer to CAVB quarters

Kenya Prisons went one step closer to storming to the African men’s Club volleyball championship quarter finals following emphatic win on their penultimate preliminary match on Friday in Cairo, Egypt.

Prisons, the 2011 finalists downed Congo’s Espoir by 3-1 sets of 25-16, 25-19, 20-25 and 25-17and will sail through to the last eight as group ‘C’ runners up if leaders Swelhly of Libya who player later in the evening defeat Cameroon’s FAP.

The warders who sit second in their pool on eight points however are poised to secure passage to the last eight on Saturday if they defeat winning less Rukinzo of Guinea by straight sets if FAP would have defeated Swehly.

Speaking to Citizen Digital from Egypt, Prisons’ head coach David Lung’aho praised his charges following the win while shifting his focus to the final tie.

“We are almost through but we should wait to see the result against Swehly and FAP although we will qualify tomorrow if we defeat Rukinzo with straight sets,” he said.

On the other hand, General Service Unit’s chances to the last eight seem minimal despite winning their penultimate match on straight sets against University of Zimbabwe.

The national champions defeated the Zimbabweans easily by sets of 25-11, 25-14 and 25-18 and lie third in pool ‘D’ on eight points.

The paramilitary side can only qualify if second placed Nemo Stars of Uganda who have 10 points lose in their final match. The pool is led by Asaria of Libya on 11 points.

The annual event which has attracted 22 teams across the continent will serve out on March 11.
