Kenya Harlequin will take home the bragging rights in all forms after rallying to edge visiting Resolution Impala Saracens 25-23 in the second installment of this season’s Ngong Road Derby at the RFUEA Grounds on Saturday 30 January 2016.
It was the visiting Sarries who got the first points on the board, Sammy Oliech scoring a penalty before scoring and converting his own try for a 10-0 score.
Lyle Asiligwa would drill home a penalty to cut the deficit to 10-3 before Oliech pounced with another try and conversion to see the Sarries lead 17-3.
When Oliech added another penalty, it was definitely beyond Quins with the scores at 20-3 but the hosts were not out, Asiligwa drilling home the conversion from Tony Mutai’s try to bring the game to 20-10 before Kevin Keegan stepped and dummied to score a beaut of a try, Asiligwa converting for a 20-17 score at the break.
Mutai, playing like the captain he is, would go over the chalk for an unconverted try,Quins leading 22-20. Asiligwa would extend the hosts lead with a penalty that took the scores to 25-20 before Oliech replied, drilling his penalty between the sticks but it was too little to late as Quins held out for the win.
