UoE, Ngong in playoffs to protect Championship status

Ngong Warriors and the University of Eldoret take one last shot ensuring KRU Championship survival when they meet the losing semifinalists from the Nationwide National playoffs this coming weekend.

Ngong Warriors, 9th at the close of the KRU Championship following a league committee decision to award them their aborted clash against the University of Eldoret will host Eldoret at the Kibiko Secondary School in Ngong on Saturday 19 May 2018. Eldoret lost to MMUST 30-5 in their Nationwide semifinal fixture last weekend.

The second playoff pits the University of Eldoret at home to Swara who fell to a 12-8 defeat to Kitale in the other Nationwide semifinal fixture. UoE placed 10th at the close of the Championship.

A loss for either UoE or Ngong will see both sides lose their championship status for the 2018/19 at the expense of the winners from this coming Saturday’s encounters.
