Ofafa Jericho completed its preliminary round fixtures in this year's Prescott Cup on a winning note after seeing off Strathmore School 23-5 at the Lenana School during the second festival of the elite games on Saturday 26 May.

Ofafa, recently crowned Blackrock champions, came to this game straight from a 28-3 win over Nairobi School the previous Sunday. It was their third win in four games that keeps them top of group B for yet another week.

Ofafa beat Muhuri Muchiri 3-0 in their first Prescott Cup encounter in March. They went down 21-13 to champions Upper Hill during the first festival at Nairobi School on 12 May.

In another game played at Lenana on Saturday, Upper Hill handed Nairobi school a second straight defeat winning their encounter 22-0. The champions now have two games to go, just as Nairobi School and Muhuri Muchiri, to complete their pool fixtures.

In Pool A, Rift Valley Academy (RVA) received five points on a platter as their opponents Alliance High School did not arrive on time.

The awarded win sees RVA stay top of pool A with three in three adding on to their opening 63-7 away win over Saint Mary's and 20-5 triumph over Mangu.

Alliance are yet to play a field game this season as their mid week clash against Mangu last week was called off due to an accident suffered by the travelling Mangu.

While RVA has one more game to complete their group fixtures - against Lenana, the rest of the schools in the group have a bulk of three games each to go.

Damu Changa

Though their seniors were beaten by Upper Hill, Nairobi School's junior side managed to post a 10-10 draw with their metro hill counterparts.

2017 Damu changa finalists Ofafa II hit Starthmore II 10-5 on Saturday to follow up on a 5-0 win over Nairobi School II the previous Sunday.

RVA II picked up a walkover from the late Alliance II.

Damu Pevu

Coached by Victor Walgwe who delivered back-to-back Prescott Cups for Upper Hill in 2016 and 2017, Dagoretti High romped to another high scoring win in Damu Pevu, this time a 61-0 win over Highway.

Coming to this game Dagoretti had started off with a 60-0 win over Aquinas at Nairobi School.

In the only other another tie on Saturday Langata High registered a 31-5 win over Mutuini to add on to their opening 20-0 win over Kahuho.
