While Mangu will be in search of their first Prescott win of the season, Alliance are starting their season off. In the ended weekend, during the first of few planned festivals where all schools merge at a venue, Mangu went down 20-5 to Rift Valley Academy (RVA) at Nairobi School. Their Damu Changa side - the defending champions - hit their RVA counterparts 29-0 to start off on a high. 

RVA - Lenana clash postponed

Lenana were set to travel to Rift Valley Academy(RVA) but that has been postponed as the former is preparing for pre-mock exams and so opted not to travel.

A statement from RVA said "Lenana has requested a postponement of our matches scheduled for tomorrow. New date TBD. However...on to Blackrock this Saturday!"

RVA has so far picked two straight wins; 63-7 over Saint Mary's and the latest 20-5 win against Mangu while Lenana downed the same St. Mary's 24-0 on Saturday in their opening game. 

After Blackrock

Homeboyz Prescott Cup takes a one week break to pave way for Blackrock Festival to be hosted at St.Mary's School. Action resumes on Saturday May 26 with the second festival at Lenana School.

However, the organizers confirm that the day after Blackrock, on Sunday 20 May, Nairobi School will host Ofafa Jericho at their backyard in both Prescott and Damu Changa in games called off from Wednesday 9 May.  It had initially been planned for Friday 1 June. 

It will be the first game for Patch this season while for Ofafa it will be third. Ofafa started with a 03-00 win over Muhuri Muchiri (in March) but lost their second game on Saturday to champions Upper Hill (13-21).
