Kenya jumped to the second spot with 16 points in match 27 of the Kabaddi World Cup 2016 with an easy 74-19 victory over USA. Their big guns, David Mosambayi and Phelix Opana fired when required to bring their team closer to qualification to the knockouts. Kenya won by a lead of 55 points (74-19) against the USA. The first half was also in favor of the Kenya who had a lead of thirty points (38-08) and carried the same form in the second half to emerge winners. Things began on a rather even keel, with Ben Marcelus and Dillyon Banks ran successful raids for the USA, with David Mosambayi and Odhiambo Ogak doing the same for Kenya. After 6 minutes, a cautious contest had a scoreline of 6-4. With the second all out of the game, the Kenya made it 16 points game. In the very next raid, Odhiambo Ogak of the Kenya came up with a superb super tackle, which was followed by a couple picked up by the crowd-favourite Phelix Opana. Substitute player Patrick Mauve then pulled off a series of successful raids to put his side in the ascendancy, but a super tackle by the Kenya’s Odhiambo Ogak saw the half end at a tight 38-8 scoreline to the Kenya. With the all-out in the 26th minute at 52-10 it was a huge mountain to climb for the hosts. They did make efforts mostly through Ben Marcelus and Dillyon Banks who had four and five raid points respectively but they lacked support.
