Champions Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) and Homeboyz upheld with their winning form to stay at the top of Kenya Cup League as Kabras Sugar rediscovered their form on a weekend that witnessed major upsets.

KCB touched down 10 tries to maul hosts Mombasa 60-0 at Mombasa Sports Club as the Deejays floored enyatta University’s Blak Blad 27-13 at the Jamhuri Park show ground.

Kabras Sugar returned to winning ways with a resounding 47-15 win over Resolution Kisii at the Mamboleo Showground in Kisumu. Kabras had the previous Saturday lost to Homeboyz 30-12 at home in Kakamega.

KCB stayed at the top with 44 points after a bounty of harvest from the coastal city while the Deejays’ bonus point victory against the varsity students saw them uphold their second place with 39 points.

Kabras are third with 38 points followed by Impala with 34 points after they edged out visiting Nakuru 43-36 at the Impala Sports Club.

Down coast, Felix Ojow, Michael Kimwele, Marlin Mukolwe, Elphas Adunga and Stafford Abeka scored a try each as Esau Otieno made three conversions for the bankers’ 31-0 lead at the break.

Abeka completed his brace of tries as Edwin Otieno, Rocky Anguko, Curtis Lilako and Darwin Mukidza went for a try apiece in the second session to condemn Mombasa to a heavy defeat. Otieno and Mukidza made one conversion each.

Keith Wasike, Polycarp Odhiambo, Leonard Mugaisi and Israel Soi scored a try each for Homeboyz while Mohammed Omollo converted once besides a penalty.

Kabras Sugar led 21-0 at the interval through tries from George Nyambua, Geoffrey Shitambasi and Joseph Odero with Philip Wokorach adding three conversions.

Wokorach would then score and convert his own try to see the cane crushers go 28-0 up before Brian Mokua responded with an unconverted effort for Kisii.
He would then convert Nyambua’s brace for a 35-5 score before being replaced.

Paul Abuto added another for Kabras, Andrew Gathua converting for a 42-5 score. Eliphaz Emong killed off Kisii with an unconverted try for a 47-5 score before the visitors put up a late show with John Ochar first drilling home a penalty before converting Michael Kimathi’s clever try off the lineout to confirm the full time score.

Mwamba recovered from three consecutive defeats including their previous 18-12 loss to Kisii to beat Nondescripts 53-13 at the Railway Club as Kenya Harlequin beat Strathmore Leos 23-6 at the RFUEA ground.
