KCB outclass MMUST in Kenya Cup

KCB RFC continued their strong start to the Kenya Cup season with a 41-0 demolition of Masinde Muliro University (MMUST) in Kakamega on Saturday.

The Bankers made two changes for the match with Emmanuel Silungi and Martin Owila handed starting roles by head coach Curtis Olago.

The visitors needed 10 minutes to sink the opening try after a dominant start with Davis Chenge breaking clear to score although Isaac Njoroge missed the conversion.

Elphas Adunga sunk the second moments later but Njoroge again missed the conversion.

MMUST fell 17-0 by half time after Samuel Asati got on the score sheet and Darwin Mukidza nailed the extras.  

Former champions KCB kept the boys from Lurambi at bay for the remainder of the game, with Esau Otieno scoring his second try of the game between the posts after being set up by Shaban.

Mukidza added the extras to make the score 24-0, putting the bankers ahead just minutes into the second half.

MMUST were sloppy in the final third and eventually gave up a try. Owilah scores his second try of the game after powering over the MMUST defence line. Mukidza's conversion increased KCB's lead to 31-0.

The bankers continued to put pressure on the students, and their chance to extend their lead came in the form of a penalty, which Darwin Mukidza converted to make the score 34-0.

Martin Owilah grabbed his hatrick to score at the corner, giving KCB the final say in the game. Darwin Mukidza converted to give the bankers maximum points, sealing the game at 41-0.

The varsity boys have had an unprecedented run of defeats, including a 23-21 loss to Strathmore leos on Saturday in their first match of the season, while KCB destroyed Harlequins 38-0.
