KENYA CUP

Kabras pile more misery on Kisumu

Kabras handed Kisumu RFC the 10th the straight loss of the season following a 59-13 win in a Kenya Cup match staged at Mamboleo Grounds on Saturday.

Kisumu were the first once on the scoresheet with a penalty but Kabras were quick to reply moving the ball in three phases before Alfred Orege completed the move scoring the first try that was converted by Ntabeni Dukisa. Tanga would launch the attack that led to the second try picking Jone Kubu with a pass while the Fijian put Felix Ayange through for the second converted try.

January new signing Royal Mwale then landed the third try on his first start for the club before Tanga picked the ball from the scrum and danced past his markers to score the fourth try. Dukisa converted all the first-half tries for a 28-0 lead at halftime.

The scoring run continued in the closing half with debutant Walter Okoth who was cleared this week to feature for the club scoring the fifth try which Dukisa failed to convert. Kubu would then score in a spectacular fashion, side-stepping past his markers to touch down the sixth try.

Kisumu would then get their first try through their second row after several pick and drives in Kabras territory the try was converted for 10 points. A high tackle by Paul Abuto earned him a sin-bin but substitute Kevin Keegan made them not to feel the numerical disadvantage as he glided past Kisumu defence for another try. Asuman Mugerwa also got on the scoresheet after rising from a ruck and driving through to score.

The third substitute Barry Robinson scored the final try of the game. Kubu converted all the three tries for a 59-13. They have completed a double over Kisumu having won the first leg 89-0.
