Kenya Cup: KCB lick Kabras Sugar

The battle of big boys in the Kenya Cup, the Kenya Rugby 15 aside was today between defending champions Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) and Kabras Sugar.

But the unbeaten KCB made it sure that they win ten out of ten matches at the KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka today.

The bankers whitewashed the sugar millers 41-12 to seal a place into the play off at the league penultimate stage.

Darwin Mukidza would slot home a penalty after twenty minutes of play to put KCB 3-0 up. The bankers would then land a try  through Peter Karia, Mukidza converting to see KCB go 10-0 up.

Kabras would attack, meekly though, KCB adding a second try through Nick Ongerti off a furious maul, Mukidza converting for a 17-0 lead.

Jacob Ojee,with the defense beaten, and the try line beckoning in invitation,dropped the ball,denying KCB the opportunity for a third try.

The bankers incessant pressure eventually saw former Kenya skipper Brian Nyikuli barge over the chalk, Mukidza converting for a 24-0 lead at the interval.

A Mukidza penalty saw KCB go 27-0 up before Philip Wokorach, Kabras most consistent player on the day,landed a converted try for a 27-7 score.

The bankers would land their bonus point try, Felix Ojow going over with Mukidza adding the extras for a 34-7 lead. Ojow would visit the sin bin moments later,Kabras with a  try for a 34-12 score but Mukidza eventually scored and converted to see the bankers go 41-12 up,a lead they held into the full time whistle.

The result saw KCB secure Kenya Cup home semifinal qualification with a game to spare
