KENYA CUP

Kabras spank Nakuru in Rai Derby

Kabras have extended their winning streak to three matches in a trot after beating Nakuru RFC 50-8 in a Kenya Cup match played at Kakamega Showground.
Nakuru traveled to Kakamega seeking to bounce back to winning ways after Impala loss and having a good record of three wins in the last five visits to Kakamega, Wanyore were hoping for a positive result.
Mitch Ocholla charges, however, found themselves trailing after allowing Kabras to cross over four times in the opening half. Brian Tanga was the first player to breach Nakuru’s defence and he touched down before Ugandan import Philip Wokorach converted for a 7-0 lead.
Kenya Simbas winger Felix Ayange stretched the lead for Kabras before Hanningtone Wabwire cut the gap with a penalty kick for Nakuru. Kabras returned to the scoresheet with the third try that was scored by Ayange while Paul Abuto stretched their lead to 24 points
Nakuru pulled back with a try from Philip Kwame and the teams headed to the break with Kabras leading 24-8.
The second final half saw Wokorach slice past the Nakuru defenders and scored for Kabras. Bason converted the try and did the same to Ayange’s third try. Former Kenyan International Fabian Olando scored but Kevin Keegan failed to add the extras.
Substitute Barry Robinson took the scores to 48 while Keegan rounded off the scores to 50-8.
The win means Kabras will stay top on Kenya Cup standings after the win. For Nakuru its the second defeat.
