Kenya Harlequin piled on MMUST misery as they beat the students 21-11 in a Kenya Cup match played at MMUST Grounds.
Though Quins failed to pick a bonus point, the win is important as it boost their semi-final chances while it leaves MMUST rooted bottom after six consecutive losses.
Quins were quick off the blocks scoring through Roxy Suchi after he was put through by Brian Waraba. Henry Ayah converted for 7-0 lead. MMUST pulled back through a penalty by John Bahati.
Paul Murunga’s side also got a penalty at the other end and it was converted for a 10-3 before Waraba’s line-out troubled MMUST and Suchi went on to score their second try but their conversion attempt was off target.
Nelson Makokha scored the first try for MMUST but Bahati failed to convert it and the teams went to the break with the scores at 15-8 for Quins after a penalty by Ayah.
In the second half, Eric Cantona came off the bench to get a five pointer that cut the gap to four points but Ayah drilled in later penalties that put the game beyond MMUST handing them the sixth loss of the season.
