NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 4 – Homeboyz RFC hammered Kenya Harlequin 48-5 to lift the fourth leg of National Sevens Circuit at Dala 7s in a final played at the Mamboleo Grounds in Kisumu on Sunday.

Homeboyz showed intent from the start with Alvin Otieno offloading to Charles Omondi for the opening try as Mike Wanjala converted for a 7-0 lead before Bush Mwale added a second that was converted by Leonard Mugaisi.

It was route one from the Deejays with Omondi powering his way over the chalk for his brace to see his side take a 19-0 lead as Quins barely got a whiff of possession.

Cyprian Kuto’s converted try send Homeboyz 26-0 up before Kevin Keegan danced his way to the tryline, touching down for Quins to reduce the deficit to 26-5 at the interval.

Mugaisi claimed possession from the restart, beating his Quins defenders to score.

Otieno powered past Eric Shikuku to go over and it was soon Max Kang’eri’s turn to join the try fest as the rampant deejays continued to choke the life out of Quins.

Quins’ misery was compounded when Herman Humwa was yellow carded for a high tackle on Mugaisi, Masai converting from the ensuing penalty try.

In the third place play-off, Kabras Sugar saw-off Strathmore Leos 24 22 with Jone Navuso and Philip Wokorach scoring for Kabras before Brian Bango replyed for the Leos with two converted tries.

Elton Isiaho grounded and converted after the restart as the Leos went 21-12 up before Jone Kubu touched down for Kabras.  A further converted try took Kabras 24-22 up.

Overall defending champions KCB RFC thrashed Impala Saracens 31-5 in a match where Essau Otieno scored the opening try after Ken Moseti had turned over possession before Peter Kilonzo added two tries in quick succession, Moseti managing a conversion for a 17-0 lead at half time.

Brian Omondi added a converted try after the interval, extending the bankers lead before Lameck Dunde went over for the Sarries.

Jimmy Kilonzo put the icing on KCB’s cake, his converted try confirming the result for the bankers.

University of Nairobi’s Mean Machine won the Bowl after defeating Nondescript 17-12 while Western Bulls demolished Makueni 17-0 to be crowned the Shield champions.
