Angela Okutoyi and Jayson Mbogoro won the Under 14 girls’ and boys’ finals respectively as Ryan Randiek made it a hat-trick as he emerged victorious in the boys’ Under 16 final as the week-long tourney that attracted players from Seven African countries came to an end.

It was a family affair in the girls Under 14 final as twins Okutoyi and Roselida Asumwa faced off for the title. It was Okutoyi who came out on top as she got the better of her twin sister winning 6-2, 6-0 in their singles final.

It was however a bitter sweet experience for the victorious Okutoyi who wished that she would have faced another opponent.

“It feels good to win a final but not at the expense of making your sister cry and it takes a bit of the joy of winning. I wish it would have been another opponent but that it just how the game is,” Okutoyi said.

Okutoyi, who has been in imperious form throughout the tourney, raced to a 4-1 win in the opening set before Asumwa won the next game to revive hopes of a comeback. It was however not to be as the top seed claimed the next two games to win the opening set.
