Kenyatta University’s Blakblad picked up from where they left off last weekend to bag their much-needed win in the Kenya Cup league beating Resolution Impala Saracens 20-17 at the University Grounds. Last weekend Blad suffered a narrow 14-15 loss to Mwamba. The win over Impala lifts Blad from the tenth position to ninth.
At the KCB Grounds, the defending champions completed their double over the Kenya Harlequins beating them 29-3. Homeboyz dominance in open play and set pieces saw them beat Top Fry Nakuru 47 while only conceding five points. Leonard Mugaisi opened up the match with a try in the first five minutes as he rounded his defenders before exploiting a gap he spotted. Evin Asena’s conversion gave them a 7-0 lead that would be complemented. The Deejayz landed three more tries in the first half for a 28-0 score at the breather.
The second half, Nakuru’s landed their solitary try off a powerful line break by Philip Kwame who offloaded to Gramwel Bunyasi who went over the whitewash. Wanyore were on course to add more points to their tally when Kwame’s brother Oscar Ouma replicated his brother’s line break and headed for the try line but the referee nullified the eventual try after the touch judge flagged a knock-on in the earlier play that led up to Nakuru landing what could’ve been their second try.
The Deejayz, however, picked up from where they left off in the first half to go over the whitewash thrice with two successful conversions for the full-time score to read 47-5.
In Nakuru, Menengai Oilers bounced back to their winning ways by beating Western Bulls 43-17 at the Moi Showgrounds, Nakuru while in Kakamega, Kabras registered a total of 56 points across Stanbic Mwamba’s try line while Mwamba scored 13 points against the hosts.
