Kenya Cup standings after regular season


Kenya Cup regular season came to an end on Saturday 6 April after 16 rounds of play for each team.

Kabras head coach Henly Du Plessis was able to guide the side to a top finish for the first time in their history. The Kakamega based will host the finals in Kakamega if they win the semifinal assignment. The Sugarmen finished top of the log with 74 points. Besides topping the log they also finished the year as the best offensive side.

The Kakamega based side scored 670 points in the 16 matches. They lost once in the entire regular season. KCB finished as the meanest side in the league after conceding 186 points. The Bankers sit second on the list of the best sides offensively as well as second on the overall standings thanks to 15 wins and one loss. Failure to pick bonus points in the last two matches saw them finish with 72 points.

Kenya Harlequins are placed third on the log with 53 points. A gap of 19 points separates them and KCB. Charles Cardovillis managed 1o wins, a draw, and five losses. Quins scored 419 points which make them the third best offensive side locally.

Nakuru returned to the playoffs by shooting from sixth to fourth. Mitch Ocholla coached side had nine wins and seven losses from the last 16 matches which earned them 47 points. Mwamba and Impala finished the regular season with 45 points each but the goal difference is what separated them.

Nondies impressive season ended badly as they missed the playoffs despite having the same number of wins with Nakuru and Impala. The side picked 43 points from the wins. Oilers went on to finish at position eight while Homeboyz dismal run saw them pick the ninth slot.

Blak Blad’s four wins secured them another season in the top tier. Strathmore Leos joined Mean Machine on the relegation list.  Leos finished the league with 14 points. Their major undoing was defence as they conceded 502 points in the league. No other side conceded more than them.

Mean Machine scored the least points in the league, 201. They conceded 462 points in the campaign.
