KCB Rugby bagged the seventh straight win in Kenya Cup beating Strathmore Leos in 33-18 Jerry Olola Di Baddest Cup match played at KCB Sports Club on Saturday.

The Bankers, fresh off a dominant 80-10 victory over Mwamba, aimed to secure another win and maintain their lead over Menengai Oilers and Kabras.  Their opponents Strathmore on the other hand had not started the season strongly but had recently earned a convincing win against Catholic Monks.

In the match which was also used to honor departed  Jerry Olola , KCB, the league leaders, began by scoring the first points with a seven-pointer. They then extended their lead when Darwin Mukidza scored a try and successfully converted it for a 14-0 advantage.

Strathmore responded by scoring their first try of the match through Brunson Madigu, narrowing the gap to nine points. The score remained unchanged as the teams headed into halftime.

Editor’s pick:

Louis Kisia’s halftime talk seemed to have had a positive effect as Strathmore returned to the field with renewed energy, taking the lead in the match. They achieved this through two consecutive penalties by Madigu, and later, a converted try that brought the score to 18-14 in their favor.

Brian Wahinya who came off the bench scored third try that was converted and  saw the banker retake the lead.  The bankers then broke away with another try from substitute Isaac Njoroge marking their seventh bonus point this season.
Johnstone Olindi landed the final try of the match for a 33-18 win. KCB have 35 points out of the possible 55 after seven rounds.
