KCB crushed Impala 43-9 to move even closer to a fourth successive Kenya Cup. They scored five tries,four penalties and thr conversions while Impala scored three penalties.
Leaders Impala, who were playing their final Kenya Cup fixture needed to break a five year winless streak at the Lions to claim a first league title since 2004 but came unstuck against a KCB side that was ruthless in attack and resolute in defence. Impala failed to breach the KCB try line,scoring all their points from the boot of former Kenya scrum half Moses Kola who also scored all their points last season when they lost 39-6 in Ruaraka.
Anthony Ogot stood out,scoring two tries and continually frustrating Impala with pinpoint line kicks. A contender for man of the match.
Anthony Ogot 2 tries
Peter Mutai 1 try, 4 penalties, 3 conversions.
Curtis Olago 1 try
Derrick Wamalwa 1 try
Moses Kola 3 penalties
Earlier, KCB Cubs rallied from 5-7 at half time beat Impala's Boks 26-10 and all but claim the Eric Shirley Shield .
A comprehensive report in tomorrow's post.
Alluring magnet of politics is still a mystery in Kenya - In essence, people will demand development (rightfully so) plus tonnes or handouts.
