Sarries end three year wait for Ngong Road derby success

Resolution Impala Saracens posted their first Kenya Cup win over SportPesa Quins since 22 November 2014, that’s three years and two months,  with a 10-8 result in a tight match day six encounter at the RFUEA on Saturday 20 January 2018.

Aaron Oforywoth drilled home a third minute penalty to see Quins go 3-0 up. The game remained scrappy,characterized by handling errors and all round indecision in between a few thumping tackles. Ishmael Mokaya barged over on thirty minutes to see the Sarries take a 5-3 lead into the breather.

The second half briefly sparked into life when David Ambunya set up Erick Shikuku to score and put Quins 8-5 up after fifty minutes.

The second half started on a scrappy note,its highlight being that brawl that saw Quins lock Malcom Onsando and Impala flanker Paul Mutsami yellow carded.

Quinto Ongo’s penalty would sail wide as Impala trailed but moments later Sammy Motari played in Ian Minjire to score at the left hand corner with twelve minutes to play,the visitors leading 10-8.

Ongo would  miss the conversion and an ensuing penalty as the match ended moments later.
