The 2017/18 Kenya Cup season entered its third round last Saturday with five matches on the cards.
The major talking points of the weekend will arguably be drawn from KCB’s demolition of university side Blak Blad in Ruaraka as well as Nondies getting their campaign back on track after a huge win over Mombasa RFC at home.
Kabras 30-6 Nakuru
Nakuru had lost just one of their four previous visits to the Kakamega showground and this provided for a perfect opportunity to maintain that record.
A Kevin Keegan inspired Kabras RFC would however break the jinx courtesy of Jacob Okumba and Ivan Kirabo’s touchdowns to remain unbeaten after three matches.
Wanyore will have to go back to the drawing board as the loss to Kabras meant that they suffered their second successive defeat having fallen to Sportpesa Quins on matchday two.
Homeboyz 39-21 Impala
Homeboyz condemned Impala to their first loss of the campaign in a calsh which the Deejays had to dig deep,having traile 14-8 at the break.
Mohammed Omollo would return to haunt his former employers,putting in a man of the match perfomance which was capped with a brace of tries.

KCB 70-16 Blak Blad
The defending champions ran riot in Ruaraka,claiming a winning bonus point in style courtesy of a 70-16 thumping of university side Blak Blad.
The Bankers had assembled their best ahead of the match with the likes of Darwin Mukidza,Peter Karia and Peter Kilonzo all featuring.
It will however be worth noting that Blak Blad became the first side this season to breach the bankers defence with a try.
Sportpesa Quins 46-16 Mwamba
A stellar display from Brian Beckham saw 14-man Mwamba RFC suffer their third loss of the season,leaving Kevin Wambua’s charges with two points after matchday three.
Quins were on the front foot from the onset,racing to an unassailable 29-6 lead at the break before second half trie by Malcolm Onsando,Eric Shikuku and Stanley Lunani’s double sealed the win.
Nondies 64-5 Mombasa
Mombasa will probably find it difficult to avoid the chop after suffering yet another heavy defeat at the hands of Nondies.
The win will be a huge relief for Nondies coach Willis Foxx Ojal as his charges had lost to Blak Blad and Homeboyz in their opening two matches.
