Menengai Oilers collected their four straight win of the season as they defeated Homeboyz 37-22 at Jamhuri Grounds on Saturday.
Gibson Weru charges had dropped a point in their win over MMUST last weekend and were keen to collect maximum points this weekend to keep up with KCB Rugby and Kabras RFC.
Oilers lead at Halftime
They were facing a Homeboyz side that had lost to KCB last weekend and were hoping to bounce back to winning ways. The Nakuru based side fought to take a 14-8 lead to the break.
Kenyan International John Okoth scored the opening try of the game after just six minutes of play and Tony Oketch converted for a 7-0 lead for Oilers. Mohammed Omollo pulled back for the hosts Homeboyz before Amon Wamalwa on his first start of the season converted a penalty for an 8-7 lead for Oscar Okaron’s charges after 19 minutes of play.
The visitor would fight on and landed a try through Okoth and Oketch added the extras for a 14-8 in the 32nd minute.
The second saw Oilers widen the gap with their hooker Hillary Malweyi touching down before Steve Arunga joined him on the scoresheet for a try that was converted by Herbert Ochieng for a 26-8 scoreline.
Michael Nyakundi came on to score the second try for the Deejays with Omollo converting for a 26-15.
