Kenya qualify for Africa Hockey Semi finals

The Kenya men's hockey team on Wednesday earned a semi finals berth  at the ongoing Africa Hockey Championships in South Africa after a 7-0 hammering of Tanzania.

Leon Magomere and Brian Saina each netted a brace with other goals coming through  George Mutira, Zakaria Musumba and Constant Wakhura. 

The win saw Kenya finish second of Group B behind Egypt who sealed the top pool spot with an 8-0 win over unranked Nigeria.

 Kenya will next face the winner of Group A  with South Africa tipped for the top spot in the Pool  having already qualified for the semi finals before their final Group match on Thursday .
