The stage is all set for a repeat of the Kenya Cup Finals when KCB faces Kabras Sugar. This is after both teams secured a slot to play in the finals of the Enterprise Cup.
The first half of the game didn’t see much action with both teams winning two penalties to settle for 6-6 at the interval.
Smith Muhoya converted Peter Waitere’s try for a 13-6 lead but Impala pulled a quick comeback courtesy of Bill Arigi’s try that was converted by Quinto Ongo to put the scores at 13-13.
Elphas Adunga’s try that was converted by Shaban Ahmed put KCB in the lead 20-13. Paul Mutsami’s unconverted try reduced the banker’s lead to only 2 points. KCB’s efforts were enough to contain a response from the Saracens and win the toughly contested Semi.
KCB’s Assistant Coach, Dennis Mwanja, commended the team for winning the game but admitted that more was going to be done ahead of their meet-up with bitter rivals Kabras Sugar.
“In a knockout game, we expected a tough contest. The boys were half-hearted at some point. Impala came to play and they demonstrated that today. Despite everything, a win is a win.”
Meanwhile at the ASK Showground in Kakamega, Kabras were able to beat 2018 Champions Kakamega Homeboyz 37-11.
Kabras took a 9-3 lead courtesy of three penalties from Ntabeni Dukisa. Brian Ayimba pulled the first one for Kakamega Homeboyz before Ntableni Dukisa converted Habil Malika’s try for a 16-3 lead. Keith Wasike missed a conversion for Kakamega Homeboyz to put the scores at 16-8.
A Brian Ayimba penalty brought the score to 16-11 before Dukisa converted tries from Geoffrey Meso, Edwin Oyoo, and William Opaka to confirm the result as Kabras kept their eyes on the league and cup double.
The stage has been set for this season’s Enterprise Cup final as KCB look to lock horns with defending champions Kabras Sugar who thrashed Homeboyz 37-11 in another semi-final clash in Kakamega.
