Kenya Cup Match Day 1 Round Up

Kenya Harlequin won the Ngong Road Derby at the RFUEA Ground as the 2021/22 Kenya Cup season kicked off in earnest on Saturday 27 November 2021.

An Impala penalty gave them a 3-0 lead through Quinto Ongo’s penalty but Quins responded, first missing a penalty in front of the sticks before Elisha Koronya’s grounding of the ball for a 5-3 lead.

Further tries from Mark Wandeto and  Leroy Kamau’s converted try saw Quins go 17-3 up after 25 minutes of play, a lead they held until the interval.

Impala would respond with Tariq Ngige’s converted try after the interval, bring the score to 17-10 before Quins landed their bonus point try through Wandeto.

The drama was far from over, Impala, coached by Oscar Osir and his assistant Alex Agalo clawing back to within two points courtesy of Samuel Mbeche’sconverted try.

Sheldon Kahi’s converted try gave Quins a nine point buffer, a lead that they held to the end.

Strathmore Leos hard earlier got the 2021/22 Kenya Cup season underway with a 30-11 win over Topfry Nakuru in the day’s early kickoff at the RFUEA Ground on Saturday 27 November 2021.

The Leos led 13-6 at the break.

Brunson Madigu got them ahead with a penalty kick before Fred Odongo responded in kind for Nakuru. George Ooro and Philemon Olang touched down for the Leos in between Odongo’s second penalty to wrap up the first half proceedings.

Ooro grabbed his brace after the restart before Emmanuel Mboya went over for Nakuru’s only try. Arnold Muita would then convert Matthew Mogaya’ try. Festus Safari went over the whitewash for a fifth try for the students, securing the win for Louis Kisia’s charges.
