The Kenya Cup is edging closer to the playoffs stage with the battles to finish in the top six gaining momentum.
Match day nine saw Kabras Sugar return to winning ways as Mombasa RFC’s search for a win continues after suffering a heavy defeat against holders KCB.
Kabras 47-15 Kisii RFC
The sugarmillers hosted newbies Kisii RFC away from home at the Mamboleo Showground in Kisumu seeking to return to winning ways following match day eight’s loss to Homeboyz.
For Nick Abok’s Kisii, the task at hand was claiming the scalp of yet another big side having downed Mwamba 18-12 at the Gusii stadium a week earlier.
It was the Kakamega based side however who reigned supreme as the returning Philip Wokorach,Geoffrey Shitambasi and George Nyambua all crossed the chalk for the bonus point win.
Impala 43-36 Nakuru
The Sarries survived a Nakuru RFC scare at the Impala Club, sealing a hard fought bonus point win.
In a match which the lead kept changing ownership, the likes of Ian Minjire,Daniel Ndome,Paul Mutsami and Vincent Mose scored for the hosts while Nakuru got their points on board courtesy of Charles Odongo,Geoffrey Ominde and Philip Kwame.
Despite feeling hard done by the result, Wanyore should be contented with the vital losing bonus point they bagged in Nairobi.
Mwamba 53-12 Nondies
Former Kenya 7s international Humphrey Kayange was the hero of the day,helping himself to three tries at the Railways Club to steer his Mwamba side to their second win of the season.
It was a great result to the side that disappointingly fell to Kisii a week ago as they continue with their pursuit to seal a playoffs berth.
Mombasa RFC 0-60 KCB
With two matches to go, Mombasa’s fate in the top tier could have as well been sealed despite the fact that they have a mathematical chance of survival.
It was always going to be difficult to face a KCB side who decided to give game time to the likes of Rocky Aguko and Mike Kimwele.
Both paid Coach Curtis Olago’s faith in them by inking their names on the scoresheet at the Mombasa Sports Club.
Homeboyz 27-13 Blak Blad
Before the Jamhuri Park duel,Homeboyz head coach Paul Murunga had made his intentions of bagging a bonus point clear through an interview and he delivered just that.
Leonard Mugaisi,Polycarp Odhiambo,Israel Soi and Keith Wasike all barged over to seal the win that ensures Murunga’s charges maintain grip on second spot.
Kenya Harlequins 26-6 Strathmore Leos
Just like their Ngong Road neighbours Impala, Kenya Harlequins had to dig deep to down a resilient Strathmore Leos side at the RFUEA grounds.
Converted tries by Ugandan international Aaron Ofoyrwoth and Isaac Adimo as well as three penalties by Lyle Asiligwa were enough to do the job for Quins.
