Just like the last two seasons, KCB and Kabras will face in the Kenya Cup finals, this time around in Kakamega, this is after a 46-13 win over Kenya Harlequins at KCB Sports Club.
The home side showed their intention from the kick-off and after a minute of play, they were able to gather five points. The Bankers bulldozed its way to the try line with Kenyan International Andrew Amonde dotting the opener. Jacob Ojee failed to add the extras.
He would mend for his earlier miss by converting Isaac Njoroge’s try at the ninth minute. Njoroge was put through by Peter Kilonzo. Quins started to settle down slowly in the game and started driving forward. The first attempt upfront nearly bore fruits but Melvin Thairu was stopped before he crossed over.
The Ngong road based side kept on knocking and their efforts paid off as they earned a penalty that was converted by Eric Shikuku. They were able to camp in KCB’s half, but Njoroge relieved pressure and fed Samuel Asati who offloaded to Tony Onyango who was caught before he crossed over. Asati would rise to set up Amonde who barged over for his second and third for the bankers.
KCB were dealt a blow after Kenyan International Davis Chenge was pulled off for a suspected concussion. In the finals half, Ojee slotted in a penalty for a 22-3 lead.
Peter Misango then came off the bench to score for Kenya Harlequins. The Bankers registered a converted try through Peter Karia to lead 29-8. Ojee then added a penalty for a 32-8 scoreline.
Eden Agero trimmed the gap after an unconverted try. The bankers confirmed a place in the finals after adding more points via Griffin Musila and Njoroge.
They will play Kabras in the finals set for Kakamega.
