KCB inflicted a first home defeat to Western Bulls this season, beating the Echulusi 31-6 in a Kenya Cup match day six encounter played at the Bull Ring in Kakamega.
The hosts started this match with intent, applying all the early pressure on the bankers, eventually going 3-0 up courtesy of Solomon Obiero’s penalty on 14 minutes.
Peter Karia would soon reply for the bankers, scoring off a rolling maul with Darwin Mukidza missing the conversion as the match remained a tense, scrappy affair in the first half.
Indeed the scores would remain 5-3 to the bankers heading into the interval.
Second half action saw Brian Sagara touch down, again off a rolling maul, Mukidza making no mistake with the conversion as the bankers surged 12-3 ahead.
Bulls were still in the game, eventually getting points on the board when Obiero landed a second but a flurry of tries off a dominant period for KCB saw Curtis Lilako land, Mukidza converting for a 19-6 lead before second half substitute Allan Omuka got KCB’s bonus point when he scored the fourth try to make it 24-6. Lilako would soon land his fourth try in two matches, going over from a rolling maul, Mukidza converting for the full time score.
