NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 24 – KCB RFC extended their unbeaten run at the summit of the Kenya Cup after thrashing visiting Kabras Sugar 41-12 in the penultimate round hosted at the Lions Den on Saturday.

This match was marked by a frenetic start, KCB and Kabras each squandering try scoring opportunities early on.

Darwin Mukidza would slot home a penalty after twenty minutes of play to put KCB 3-0 up. The bankers would then land a try through Peter Karia, Mukidza converting to see KCB go 10-0 up.

Kabras would attack, meekly though, KCB adding a second try through Nick Ongerti off a furious maul, Mukidza converting for a 17-0 lead.

Jacob Ojee,with the defense beaten, and the try line beckoning in invitation,dropped the ball,denying KCB the opportunity for a third try.

The bankers incessant pressure eventually saw former Kenya skipper Brian Nyikuli barge over the chalk, Mukidza converting for a 24-0 lead at the interval.
