Top Fry Nakuru made their intentions known from the onset as they drilled in two penalties in the first fifteen minutes of the match off Collins Onyango’s boot.
In between the two Nakuru penalties, an infringement by Nakuru handed Kulabu with an opportunity to register their first points which they did through Elvis Namusasi’s foot. Nakuru went on to run rampage on Mwamba’s defense, opening up it up for Captain Oscar Ouma to land a center post try. Onyango’s conversion taking the scores to 3-13.
A skillful interplay between Nakuru’s backline resulted in Emmanuel Mboya going over the whitewash, conversion drifted wide for a 3-18 half time score.
Stanbic Mwamba’s half time talk seemed to work wonders as Kulabu came back fully charged as Edwin Machanje went over the try box twice. Both conversions sailed wide putting Nakuru well within Mwamba’s reach. The last four minutes of the match saw Mwamba set camp in Nakuru’s red zone but Nakuru put up an unbreakable wall. An eventual knock-on by Mwamba saw Nakuru secure the 13-18 win.
“Our defense, especially in the last ten minutes of the match, was very commendable and I strongly believe it is what gave us this much-needed win. Our forwards were exceptional although where they slept on the job they were punished thoroughly by Mwamba,” said Head Coach Felix Oloo.
