Quins Overcome Kabras To Reach Eric Shirley Shield Semis

SportPesa Quins II produced a massive turnaround at the RFUEA, rallying from a 0-8 deficit to top Kabras II 30-11 and reach the Eric Shirley Shield semifinal.

It was the visitors who went ahead, Andrew Gathua drilling home a penalty with Kelvin Kabole landing an unconverted try to cap a dominant opening quarter of an hour for Kabras.

Quins, with their first foray into the Kabras ’22, got on the scoreboard when Max Theuri and Dennis Mugambi combined to set up Brian Beckham for the unconverted try after twenty minutes of play.

Kelvin Njugi would then score off a penalty to bring Quins level seven minutes later before Victor Odera barged over three minutes to the breather to put the hosts ahead for good, they led 13-8 at the break.

From a rolling maul minutes after the restart, Moses Okeyo barged over to give Quins a ten point cushion before Gathua landed his second penalty to bring Kabras to within seven points of their hosts with eighteen minutes to play, the scores 18-11 at this point.

The final quarter was a case of effective versus erratic, Quins using the ball well, playing for territory, taking their chances on attack while Kabras struggled to make use of the ball whenever they found themselves in possession.

The end result was 12 unanswered points, Njugi scoring off the tap penalty before Theuri landed under the posts, Alex Wanjala with the extras to confirm the result and with it a semifinal date against Impala II at the Impala Club on Saturday 8 April.
