For the fifth time in a row, KCB will tackle Impala Saracens in the Floodlit finals, this is after a 34-10 win over Homeboyz in the semis staged at the Impala Club on Saturday.
The Homeboyz-KCB clash was a repeat of last years finals that saw the Bankers pick a narrow 18-16 win to reach the semifinals. A 34-10 win in this clash means that KCB will be playing in the Floodies for the sixth time in a row.
Homeboyz managed to stop KCB’s attempts to get a try in the opening half. KCB who were dominant in the opening minutes of the clash got on the scoresheet through two penalty kicks from Darwin Mukidza while Ervin Asena missed his attempt.
