KCB outwit Kenya Harlequins

KCB registered a convincing 22-13 against a determined Kenya Harlequins side at the RFUEA grounds.
It was all KCB right from the start as the bankers looked to control the game from the whistle. Their efforts were rewarded with a penalty which Darwin Mukidza slotted in to give his team the lead.
Half way into the first half saw Quins reply with a penalty of their own after an infringement to make matters 3-3.
It was a largely quite first half as Quins looked to to take control of the match, but it was KCB who hit the hardest with just a minute left on the clock. Jacob Ojee was on the end of a KCB attack that saw him unleash a burst of speed to score in the corner. Mukidza failed to add the extras the scores standing at 8-5 as the teams went into the blocks.
It was KCB who started the second half strongly again scoring a try just seven minutes in. Peter Waitere scored from the back of a powerful scrum that saw KCB turn over the ball for their eight man to score just under the posts. Mukidza got the conversion right to take the scores to 15-3.
KCB could not get enough of the Quins’ try line as skipper Curtis Lilako shoved his way over the try line to take KCB to 20-3. Mukidza would add the extra two to make matters 22-3.
Jasper Ochen then pulled back three points for Quins after an infringement from a KCB player the scoreboard reading 22-6.
Quins seemed to have shifted up a gear as they camped in the KCB five metre line for long periods. Their consistency finally paid off  with just a minute left on the clock when Patrice Agunda went over the white chalk with the resulting conversion successful to bring the scores to 22-13.
Quins continued their onslaught but KCB defended well for a 22-13 win.
