Kenya Cup defending champions Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) bullied Blak Blad with a rare 70-16 win on Saturday in Match Day Three to go top on the standings with 15 superior points after previous log leaders Impala Saracens suffered a 21-39 defeat to Ngong Road rivals, Homeboyz in their weekend clash.
KCB ran in 10 converted tries against Blad’s solo converted try and three penalties to register the biggest score line yet. Kenya Simbas vice-captain Darwin Mukidza was on target at their home turf, booting in the ten conversions to see the Bankers lay down their title defence intentions.
KCB had cultivated a bonus point by half-time courtesy of four tries making it their third bonus point this season to make it a perfect 15 points lead courtesy of superior point advantage.
Kenyan international Peter Kilonzo and Peter Waitere scored twice each as team mates Ken Moseti and Ahmed Shaban scored from the backs end with forwards Oscar Simiyu, Martin Owila, Nick Ongeri and the experienced Stafford Abeka completed the scoring spree with a try each.
From Blak Blad’s end, Brian Kadenge scored the solo try with Levy Amunga drilling in three penalties for their 16 points as the University side registered first loss of the season.
In another one-sided affair, Mombasa suffered yet another humiliating defeat, going down 64-5 to Nondescripts at Jamhuri grounds to lie at the bottom of the log as the Rangers registered their first win of the season. Mombasa came off two straight losses to Impala and Blak Blad while Nondies came off two losses to Blak Blad and Homeboyz.
Nondies touched down nine times, converting four of them and booting in three penalties as Mombasa managed a solo unconverted try. Meanwhile, Homeboyz handed Impala a painful defeat at the Jamhuri grounds to bank another five points courtesy of the big win to see the deejays tie with KCB and Kabras at 15 points.
From Kakamega grounds, Kabras Sugar employed a defence pattern over the weekend to deny Nakuru a try in a match which the Sugar Millers won 30-6 at to bank yet another bonus point win.
Kenya Harlequins from the RFUEA grounds picked up from second round’s big win over Nakuru to serve equivalent dose to Mwamba to secure five points in a bonus 48-16 win.
Quins now have 12 points in total due to a bad start which saw them lose 39-41 to Homeboyz in their opener clash though the match awarded them two bonus points.
Strathmore clash against Kisii was postponed and will be played to a later agreed date after the hosts Strathmore University requested the time off due to ongoing examinations at the school.
