Resolution Impala Saracens silenced their next door neighbor Kenya Harlequins by beating them 27-19 at the Impala Grounds as curtains fell on Week seven of the Kenya Cup.
The Sarries were first to go over the whitewash as inside center Billy Omondi cut through the Quins’ defense gaining 40M. With an oncoming defender, Billy played in George Okowa who finished up what Billy started with a center post try. Quinto Ongo added the extras for an early 7-0 lead.
The Kenya Harlequins’ forwards slowly worked their way into the opponents red zone, the build up eventually set up Dominic Osino to sneak in a try. The gap now reduced to 7-5. The two sides exchanged tries with Impala grounding a loose ball in the ingoal area while Quins landed their second try off a rolling maul moments after. Scoreboard now reading 12-10 to the hosts.
An impala infringement in front of the posts handed Quins’ with an opportunity to add three points to their tally which they did through Lyle’s boot for a 12-13 half time score.
Billy Omondi’s intercept and Steve “Security” Odhiambo’s push over try secured Impala’s win in the second half. The two tries were complemented by Quinto’s conversions. The two tries sandwiched Lyle’s penalty that narrowed the gap to 27-16. Despite Kenya Harlequins’ efforts in attack, they were constantly met by a brick wall in red and were unable to surpass it. They’d eventually get a penalty at the death that brought their total tally to 19 against Impala’s 27.
