Egerton pips JKUAT for second Varsity League win

Egerton registered a narrow 8-5 win over JKUAT Cougars in the second round of matches of the Varsity League played Saturday 6 September at CUEA Grounds 
Brian Ndege gave Egerton the lead through a penalty before JKUAT responded through Edwin Ambito who powered his way to the try line at the left corner for an unconverted try.
Egerton retook the lead soon afterwards courtesy of a five pointer by Steve Wamae taking the scores to 8-5 at halftime.
JKUAT came back for the second half a much improved side and could have found their second try but Vincent Wafula knocked on under pressure from the Egerton defenders who had closed him down.
Both sides missed penalties in a span of five minutes as the second half ended scoreless.
With the win, Egerton temporarily go top of Pool A with 8 points, pending the result of the match pitting Kenyatta University’s Black Blad against Technical University of Kenya at 2:00pm.
JKUAT remain winless after match day two and risk missing out on the semi finals.
