Kenya lionesses kicked off well their campaign in the ongoing Hong kong sevens against host after winning their first game at a margin of 24-21.

Sinaida Aura's hat trick spurred the Lionesses to a 24-21 win over hosts Hong Kong in Pool B action at the HSBC Women's Sevens World Series qualifiers in Hong Kong on Thursday morning.

The Lionesses found themselves in a spot of bother, unable to cope with Hong Kong's early pressure and conceded two converted tries.

To be fair to the Lionesses, they hardly saw any possession and it took Aura's burst of speed from inside the 22 to leave her defenders for dead and land an unconverted try to cut the deficit to 5-14 at the break.
