25 May 2012

Gusenyi, Rwanda, May 25, 2012 – All Africa Games gold medallists Mauritius will play African top seeded Kenya in the final of the CAVB Women’s Continental Cup after both sides advanced following semifinal victories at Palm Beach in Gusenyi, Rwanda on Friday.    

Mauritius recorded an outstanding 3-1 win over third seeded South Africa in the first semifinal. After South African pairing of Palesa SEKHONYANA/ Randy WILLIAMS won the first match against Prisca SEERUNGEN/ Marie BAUDA 2-1 (21-7, 17-21, 15-7), Mauritius rebounded back to win three successive matches with two of them won by the golden pair Natacha Rigobert and Elodie Li Yuk who achieved the gold medal of 2011 All Africa Games.

On the other hand Kenya overwhelmed the struggling Mozambique 3-1 in a thrilling encounter started by 2-0 lead for the Kenyan team. Mozambique won the third match through the sisters Cumbi to regain the hope of a final spot but the Kenyans were more insistent to win the fourth match narrowly 2-1 (21-17, 10-21, 15-13) through the pair of Edinah Rotich and Eunice Maiyo.

 The third and last day of the competition features also an exciting contest between Mozambique and South Africa.

 The competition provides the winner with a place at the 2012 London Olympic Games while second and third will have another chance to qualify through the World Cup.
