KCB Rugby have once again secured a spot in the Enterprise Cup final, after a dominant victory over former Kenya Cup side Impala, with a score of 64-3 at KCB Sports Club.
This sets up a final match against Kabras RFC, marking the second year in a row that these two teams will face off in the final. The match will take place at RFUEA Grounds next weekend.
The match between KCB and Impala marked their third consecutive encounter in the Enterprise Cup, with Impala having won the semi-final in 2019 with a narrow 11-10 victory, while KCB had emerged victorious in the 2022 semi-final with a score of 20-18.
In this latest encounter, Impala, currently playing in the second tier, struggled to keep up with KCB, conceding 33 points in the first half and a further 31 in the final half.
Griffin Musila started the scoring for KCB, with a try converted by Darwin Mukidza, giving them a 7-0 lead. Jacob Ojee then crossed over for another try, which Mukidza converted to double their lead to 14-0.
Eugene Sirima added to KCB’s lead with a converted try, bringing the score to 21-0 in the 20th minute. Impala’s Churchil Obat was shown a yellow card, and KCB took advantage of the situation to score an unconverted try through Griffin Musila.
Festuns Shiasi scored the final try of the first half, with Mukidza converting to give KCB a comfortable lead going into halftime.
In the second half, Musila completed his hat-trick before being substituted. Mukidza then scored his first try of the match, which he converted to stretch KCB’s lead even further. A converted try followed 21 minutes into the second half, with Felix Ojoo and substitute Edwin Otieno scoring the final two tries, both of which were converted by Shaban Ahmed, who came off the bench.
Impala managed to score a late penalty to leave with a consolation of three points, but it was not enough to overcome KCB’s dominant performance.
