St. Paul’s were overly su­pe­rior to their Thika Road coun­ter­parts in at­tacks and de­fence in the first set, but their own mis­takes in the sec­ond pe­riod boosted KCA who came close (25-22) to snatch­ing a set.

The third set was any­one’s game at the first tech­ni­cal time out as St. Paul’s led KCA-U 8-7. Set­ter Brian Barasa came through for St. Paul’s un­der for­mer na­tional team coach Sammy Kirongo, with two dodges and three aces to open the gap 14-9.
