Kenya Cup Qualifier: Machine too strong for Egerton

Leading 19-0 at half time, Mean Machine cruised to a 37-0 win over Egerton Wasps in a Kenya Cup qualification match at the University of Nairobi on Saturday 6 February 2021.

Festus Shiasi drilled home a penalty to give the 1977,1989 and 1990 Kenya Cup champions a 3-0 lead.

Grevis Onyino’s unconverted try made it 8-0 before Trevor Asina’s penalty gave Machine the 11-0 lead. Asina drilled home another penalty after Lawrence Ndung’u’s try to put Machine 19-0 up at the break.

Second half tries from Marvin Karungii and Bruce Odhiambo alongside two penalties and a conversion from Asina gave Machine the win.

They will now travel to Kakamega to play MMUST for a slot in the 2021 Kenya Cup.

Strathmore Leos will host Northern Suburbs in the other qualification match next weekend.

Suburbs proceeded to the clash against Strathmore after USIU Martials pulled out of their fixture slated for Saturday 6 February.
