SportPesa Quins and Nondescripts played out an entertaining match nine fixture at the RFUEA Ground, Quins rallying from an 18-22 deficit to run off with the 38-22 result, staying second on the Kenya Cup log.The hosts were sprightly from the start, landing an early unconverted try through James Kang’ethe but Nondies soon responded, Fielden Sinei chipping over the on-rushing Quins defenders, Biko Adema pouncing on the loose ball to score under the posts, Sinei adding the extras for a 7-5 score after 16 minutes of play.
A Quins response was in the offing and came to fruition in the form of Kevin Umbuge’s unconverted that saw them go 10-7 up.
Former Kenya Sevens international Dennis Ombachi , on debut for Nondies, landed his maiden try , finishing off a flowing move to put his side back in the lead, the visitors leading 12-10 with fifteen of the first forty to play.
Ginton Adongo replicated Ombachi’s feat, the ex- Strathmore winger going over to see Quins go 15-12 before Sinei leveled with a penalty to bring the scores to 15-15 at the break.
Herman Humwa would visit the sin bin after being yellow carded for a late tackle, Quins down to 14 men but still retaking the lead through Kevin Keegan’s first successful goal attempt of the afternoon, a short lived lead as Eric Kioko barged over, Sinei converting as Nondies led 22-18.
Keegan would add two conversions from Herman Humwa and Dennis Mugambi’s touchdowns in between two penalties, sealing the result for the hosts.
