Impala boss admits Quins were tough, reveals winning strategy

Impala Saracens Head Coach Frank Ndong admits that Kenya Harlequins put them on pressure as they faced off in the Floodlit Quarterfinals but staying composed and defending well won them the game.
The hosts Impala went to break trailing 15-7 after Quins scored two tries through Hillary Baraza, Peter Misango while Lyle Asiligwa scored a conversion and a penalty for the lead.
The tactician is happy that they remained composed under pressure and got vital points that saw them reach the semis.
“It was a hard fought win. Honestly, Quins won the intensity part of it. They put us under pressure in most part of the game but I thank God kept our composure, defended when we needed to and got the points, ” Ndong told Scrummage.
To win the match, Impala stood tall in the closing half and ensured Harlequins did not score. They would then score 13 points in the half to eliminate Quins.
Ndong revealed that he told his charges that an early try mmediately from the break would unsettle Quins and the tact worked well for them.
“We sat down, looked ourselves in the eyes and said we are going to score in the first minute and we did it and that was the turning point. And when we scored when knew we would win,” he added.
Impala will face Strathmore Leos in the finals next weekend.
