Golden Boot winner Rodgers Oyaro and Nelson Nyakha scored in each half as their side defied the slippery conditions to ensure that they reach the summit of Kenya’s premier U-17 football tournament.

Chavakali’s defensive lapses came to haunt them in the 15th minute when they failed to deal with a Collins Omondi cross. Oyaro gathered the loose ball on the edge of the area and his shot beat Chavakali keeper George Musale for the 1-0 lead.

Oyaro, Nyakha and Michael Onyango spent the rest of the half tormenting the Chavakali defence with Omondi playing a supportive role.

Ambira continued dominating in the second half with as Chavakali failed to find any cohesion in their play.

Nyakha extended Ambira’s lead with a spectacular overhead kick 20 minutes into the second half. Once again Omondi was the architect with a cross from a corner which Nyakha connected with for a 2-0 lead.

Oyaro will now head to the Chelsea Academy for a weeklong training camp. He will be joined by the best midfielder George Kimani from Gituru Secondary School and Best defender Benard Ochieng from Ambira.
