KCB, Nairobi Wa­ter and Bun­goma eye league play­offs

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

Three women’s vol­ley­ball teams are eye­ing the re­main­ing two slots at the Kenya Vol­ley­ball Fed­er­a­tion (KVF) na­tional league play-offs set for Novem­ber in Mombasa. The bat­tle for the re­main­ing slots has at­tracted reg­u­lars Kenya Com­mer­cial Bank (KCB), Nairobi Wa­ter and Bun­goma County.

The three sides have cru­cial fix­tures next month dur­ing the KVF fi­nal league leg in El­dama Ravine, Baringo County to de­cide the fi­nal two teams for the play­offs. Win­ners here will join cham­pi­ons Kenya Pipe­line and league lead­ers Kenya Pris­ons who have al­ready booked their slots. The wardresses re­main un­beaten from seven round of matches with 21 points while Pipe­line are sec­ond on log with 18 points from seven matches. Nairobi Wa­ter have 13 points from eight matches.

The side must win one of the two fix­tures to be guar­an­teed a slot in the play-offs. KCB who are placed fourth with nine points from eight matches face Mt. Kenya Univer­sity and cham­pi­ons Kenya Pipe­line and need to win both matches to sail through. Should KCB lose the two ties, Bun­goma, who are fifth with eight points, could likely sneak through as they only need to win their re­main­ing three fix­tures.

Nairobi Wa­ter tac­ti­cian Joseph Waiganjo said: “It’s all about math­e­mat­ics for KCB, Bun­goma County and Nairobi Wa­ter. But in our case, all we need is a win against Bun­goma County.”
