Northern Suburbs, Homeboyz II, MKU Thika, Makueni, Eldoret and Egerton University are some of the teams that preserved unbeaten runs in the division two of Sepetuka Sevens out at the Eldoret Sports Club on Saturday 28 July.
They all guaranteed themselves a place in the cup quarters as well as Stingers and Embu who dropped just a game but still made it to the top eight ranking.
Homeboyz in particular were rampant in winning their two final games while keeping a clean sheet after 33-0 and 50-0 wins over Citam Kisumu and Nakuru KITI, respectively that saw themes led top of the 24 participating teams. They had started out with a hard fought 17-7 win over top seeds Webuye in their first game.
Northern Suburbs beat Moi University, KCAA Stormers to end up as the second ranked team as Egerton University, runners-up last weekend during Prinsloo Sevens in Nakuru matched Homeboyz in making it three in a row to be ranked third. Similar 24-0 wins over KPA Eldoret and TUK, and 14-10 win over Daystar Falcons saw the campus lads stay unchecked on day one.
After an uncharacteristic barren draw in game one with Sigalagala, MKU Thika registered a 24-5 win over UoE and 21-0 win over Comras to book a place in the cup quarters.
Home team Eldoret's win over KC and Bungoma, and final draw against Makueni kept them unbeaten. Makueni matched their run with wins over the same two sides.
Top seeds Webuye missed out on the top eight ranking after being dented by the Homeboyz loss in their first game. In spite of wins over Nakuru KITI and Citam Kisumu in the next set of games they head down to contest the Challenge Trophy.
