St Peters Mumias are the new Kakamega County champs after seeing off Emanani at the boys under 19 soccer final. A solitary goal by Vinedine Ambetsa in the 11th minute was all that St Peter’s Mumias needed to lift their maiden trophy first ever County football trophy. The final that was played at Musingu High on Saturday 8th June, 2019, attracted a large crowd of fans.
Earlier on the Saints had surprisingly hammered reigning National champs Kakamega High 3-0 at their opening group A match. They then went on to defeat Lugusi High 2-1 before finally humbling Lubinu Boys 2-0 in their last group A match.
