Nondies have qualified for the quarterfinals of the Enterprise Cup after eliminating Oilers on a 19-7 scoreline in a match staged at Jamhuri Grounds.
The sides went to the break tied at 7-7. The visitors were the first with a try from Davis Nyaundi who breached Nondies defence and dotted the opening try. Fly-half Abutali Wesonga added two more points from the tee handing his side a 7-0 lead.
Nondies later responded with a try from eighth-man Steve Odhiambo who has been an outstanding player day in day out for the Rangers. Ian Mabwa leveled the scores thanks to his conversion attempt that hit the target.
In the final half, Nondies managed two more tries, with Odhiambo adding his second try of the day while Saidi Sumba added the conversions points.
Debutant Victor Mutugi who made a cameo appearance in the clash got his first try in the white shirt to put Nondies 12 points up.
