Girls’ teams are Lusengeli Secondary School and Kingandole Queens, while the boys’ sides are Ebbu Stars, Wakongwe, Busia Wolves and The Saints.
They won all the sub-branch titles to book their places in the final pre-Western region qualifying round.
The six join two qualified girls teams; Red Commandoes (Butere-Mumias sub-branch) and Ibinzo Girls (Kakamega sub-branch) who lifted their respective titles during the second round of games last weekend.
Four boys and as many girls winners will enter a final round of games to provide two boys and two girls teams that will qualify for the regional finals set for Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega in January next year.
A similar number will be provided by North Western branch who had a break last weekend. They play their penultimate round of games this weekend to identify winners for Teso, Mt Elgon, Bungoma and Lugari sub branches.
Wakongwe, coached by former Homeboyz player Dennis Mukaisi, dismissed CC Junior 3-0 at Mukumu Girls school to lift the Kakamega sub branch title as Ebbu Stars lit Kidundu Stadium in Vihiga by laying to rest the Pythons in post match shoot outs. They won it 5-3 after normal time ended 1-1.
