Impala Saracens and Kenya Simbas scrumhalf Samson Onsomu has attributed territorial play and improved execution as the factors that contributed to their 39-18 win over Strathmore Leos at the Madaraka grounds.
The students who face relegation were first on the score sheet with a seven pointer before Onsomu and Steve Juma would score unconverted tries for a 10-7 lead, the Leos adding a penalty to restore parity heading into the break. Impala would then add three tries in the second half to carry the day.
“We started quite slow, the first half ended 10-10. The second half we improved out tactical play. Played at the right zones of the pitch and the execution was brilliant.” Onsomu said after the match.
The Saracens face Mean Machine in their next Kenya cup fixture. Machine go into the clash on the back of a resounding 25-3 win over fellow students Blak Blad.
Onsomu is knows the danger Machine posses with ball in hand, and he says they will have to be very tactical given a play off berth is at stake.
“We face Machine next who play same way as Strathmore. So if we give them 50/50 balls we will be in trouble. It will be a tactical game and given that we are chasing the playoffs we will need to be disciplined.”
