Usual suspects in Kenya Cup final

Kabras Sugar and KCB will meet in the Kenya Cup final for the fifth time after emerging victorious in their semifinal fixtures on Saturday 28 August 2021.  They have previously met in the 2015,2017,2018 and 2019 final.

Defending champions KCB built on a 14-0 half time lead to defeat Menengai Oilers 35-17. Jacob Ojee landed a brace with Darwin Mukidza converting to give the bankers the advantage heading into the interval.

Mukidza drilled home a penalty after the restart as KCB went 17-0 up before the Oilers responded with try from Tyson Maina, Austin Sikutwa converting for a 17-7 score.

Ojee then landed his hat trick, Mukidza missing the conversion before Oilers responded with a Sikutwa penalty to bring the score to 22-10.

Mukidza then drilled home two penalties as KCB went 28-10 before replacement scrum half Michael Wanjala picked the ball from the base of the scrum, leaving the Oilers backrow flat footed as he raced clear  to score under the posts, Shaban Ahmed sure with the conversion as KCB lead 35-10.

A late Oilers rally after Wanjala and Nelson Nyandat were binned for KCB saw them score at the death, Clinton Odhiambo going over the whitewash with Sikutwa converting for the full time score.

Kabras Sugar buit on a 28-7 lead at the interval to stop visiting Strathmore Leos 36-19 at the Nandi Bears Club.

They will host the final by virtue of having finished the regular season in first place.
