The final club quarter final fixture on the opening day of the Impala Floodies has been termed by all and sundry as the match of the day. Defending champions KCB are up against hosts Resolution Impala Saracens and if the results from last season’s clashes between the two sides are anything to go by, fans are in for a night of thrills.
Impala stunned KCB 17-0 in their Kenya Cup fixture and pushed the bankers all the way before succumbing to a 31-24 defeat in extra time during the Enterprise Cup semifinal. There surely is no love lost between the two sides.
Impala have a mix of youth and experience that is eager to emulate their great sides of seasons past by using their home tournament as a launchpad for greater glory when the official league season kicks off in November.
KCB also have a blend of youth and experience that they will call upon as they seek to overcome this first hurdle at the tournament.
This match is a fitting way to close the opening round of fixtures.
