Derrick Kyeoga delivered a hat trick as Kenya 7s hit Morocco in their second and final pool A game in the ongoing Africa 7s cup at Jemmal Stadium in Monatsir, Tunisia on Saturday 13 October.

Just as in the opening game against Botswana, Kenya grounded seven tries, three if which were converted for the win. Shujaa led 22-0 at half time. 

Kyeoga scooted away three straight times from the wing in the first half to complete his hat trick. They all came after one of Morocco's forwards had been sent to the sin bin.

Kyeoga's three followed on Daniel Taabu's opening try within 20 seconds as he picked up a poor kick start from Morocco to race from Kenya's 22 all the way to the try box. He converted it but missed to do the same for all of Kyeoga's three.

Three further tries in the second half by Charles Omondi, Brian Wahinya and Cyprian Kuto - the first two converted - ended the contest. 

In the game that followed back-to-back champions Uganda kept a second cleansheet with a 31-0 win over a determined Senegal.

Starman Philip Wokorach scored a hat trick of tries - including the one points of the second half. Ian Kisiga scored a brace in the first half as  the cranes led 26-0 at half time. 

In their opening game Uganda jump started their title defense with a clinical 45-0 dismissal of Ghana.
