Matchday three of the 2017/18 KRU Championship saw 6 matches take place across different venues countrywide.
USIU 21-5 South Coast Pirates
USIU skiper Juniour Onyango led from the front,bagging a brace as the university side came from behind to condemn the Ukunda based side to their second consecutive loss of the season.
Holding onto a lead is an issue Pirates must address as they also let slip a first half lead to lose to Mean Machine two weeks ago.
Western Bulls 12-8 Egerton
Western Bulls maintained their unbeaten run in the Western conference,surviving an Egerton scare to win,albeit without a bonus point.
Teddy Akala and Eliab Barasa both went over the chalk as Egerton bagged an unconverted try and a penalty.
CUEA Monks 10-5 JKUAT
After their opening two matches were postponed,JKUAT finally had a taste of rugby in the 2017/18 season but their first match would end in a dissapointing loss at the Catholic University grounds.
Teddy Odiambo and Victor Omupere were on target,handing Monks the first win of the campaign.
Oilers 26-17 Kisumu
Gibson Weru’s charges underlined their championship title credentials courtesy of a 26-17 win over Kisumu at the Mamboleo Showgrounds.
The win not only ensures the side maintains top spot on the log but also sees their unbeaten run in 15s rugby stretch to 23 matches.
Mean Machine 5-3 Ngong
Phelim Kidakwa’s charges had to toil in order to secure their third staright victory at home against a resolute Ngong side.
Not many would have given Ngong a chance since they are making their maiden appearance in the championship but after beating Catholic Monks and giving Machine and USIU a run for their money,the side will definitely be one to watch out in the Eastern conference.
Moi Arsonists 17-10 UoE
Three matches,three losses.That is not the kind of start any side would dream of in a league campaign.A Tony Khadambi brace would ensure that Moi Arsonists beat the Trojans,piling more miseries on the side that is currently occupying the basement of the log.
