Kabras RFC got the third straight victory in the Kenya Cup after beating Nakuru RFC 30-6 at Kakamega Showground on Saturday.
Nakuru had just lost one of their last four visits to Kakamega Showground. They were seeking to extend their away record against Kabras four wins in five visits. Kabras on the other hand were hoping to register the third straight win of the 2017/18 season.
Kevin Keegan put the homeside Kabras into lead by slotting in a penalty but the visitors pulled back with Geoffrey Ominde’s penalty.
Keegan restored the lead with another penalty that took the scores with 6-3. The former Kenya Harlequins man would then feed Jacob Okumba who touched down at the post and converted the try for 13-3.
At the start of the second Half, Ominde saw his penalty go wide and minutes later Kabras moved to the 20 point mark after Felix Ayange got a high tackle from Cassius Omollo who was sinbinned for the offense.
Ayange would then add a try but the try did not count. Minutes later Kabras were reduced to 14 after former Nakuru man Coleman Were was sinbinned.
An exchange of penalties between Ominde and Keegan so the scores move to 23-6. Ugandan International Ivan Kirabo completed the scores with a late try that was converted by Keegan
This becomes the second ever victory for Kabras against Nakuru in a Kenya Cup match staged in Kakamega.
