Falcons had a great run in the tournament winning in all of the four rounds they participated in to be crowned champions.
The Daystarians opened the action against Makerere University who had the home advantage but Falcons proved too hot for the hosts to handle, blitzing them 31-05.
Up next for Falcons was Kyambogo who suffered a similar fate to Makerere University, falling 34-05 to the on-fire Daystarians.
Round 3 saw Falcons pitted against fellow Kenyan team, Kenyatta University. KU put up a spirited fight to push Falcons all the way but the Daystarians were not to be outdone as they narrowly edged the fellow Kenyans 14-10.
The final Round saw Daystar pitted against yet another fellow Kenyan team in USIU. Falcons run riot against USIU easing past them in a 32-07 thrashing.
That excellent run of games saw the Daystarians crowned champions of the 2023 King’s of Africa University 7s on foreign soil.
