Kenya Cup’s match day two brings with it a clash of university sides, ironically so, at a university. Our team toyed around with the title for this script and after much thought settled on the title, “ Two university sides clash…at a university.”
Well, back to the matter at hand, Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad host the Pan Africa Strathmore Leos in the opening fixture on a double header day at the University of Nairobi. Blak Blad were competitive in their 32-14 loss to Lunch Bar Quins last weekend and come into this clash keen to build on the positive from that result and stop the Leos.
The Leos started their campaign with a 45-0 win away to Mombasa and Mitch Ocholla has tinkered with the side, Sammy Motari, usually fielded at fullback slotting in at center while George Ndemi, Teddy Dondi, Tonny Owuor, Eugene Nzioka, Kenny Andola, Michael Wanjala, Billy Odhiambo, Brian Mwangovya who all started against Mombasa are rested or relegated to the bench respectively.
