Ukwe win Uriri CDF title


Ukwe FC thrashed Homeboyz fc 3-2 in post match penalties to clinch the fourth edition of Tukuza Talanta tournament in a thrilling men’s football final at Arambe Primary School grounds in Uriri constituency, Migori County.

The Uriri Constituency Development Fund-sponsored tournament organised by area MP Mark Nyamita attracted more than 50 teams in both men and women categories.

In the men’s final, both teams played out a barren draw in regulation time in an entertaining match that attracted hundreds of football enthusiasts drawn from across the county.

In the shoot-out, Ukwe scored through Samwel Otieno, Ernest Oyugi and Daniel Omondi while Clinton Musera and Brian Ngesa were on target for Homeboyz. 

In the women's final, Uriri Starlets also edged out Uriri United 3-1 on penalties to win the trophy for the third time in a row. 

Starlet’s Ivon Charachaka, Rita Atieno and Jannet Akoth converted their kicks while Jerusa Atieno scored for United.

Speaking during the awards ceremony, Nyamita and Migori Senator Ochilo Ayako lauded the participants for engaging in sports. 

“We are aware that the majority of young people are engrossed in a lot of unpromising ventures during this festive season. I want to thank those who saw it wise to undertake the sporting exercise,” Nyamita said.

Senator Ayako called on youths to shun negative practices and embrace sports as a profession.

In other disciplines, Arambe bagged the women handball’s trophy while Ponda Ndogo won the men’s category.

In volleyball, Rapogi emerged winners in both men and women categories.

Mori clinched the men's netball trophy for the third time in a row with Ukwe coming second.

All the four wards in Uriri Sub County were represented in the week-long tournament aimed at nurturing talents and empowering youths during the prolonged holidays occasioned by Covid-19.

All participants received assorted prizes with the winners bagging Sh50,000 each, a trophy, two sets of uniform and a ball.
