KCB led following tries from Levy Amunga and Brian Wahinya. Wahinya managed one conversion for a 12-0 lead at halftime.

In the second half, Nondies pulled back through Sankara Wafula but KCB hung on to reach the final.

In the second sem-final, Nakuru RFC beat their home town rival Menengai Oilers 21-17.

In the Nakuru Derby, Chrissant Ojwang produced a clear pair of heals to land the opening try, two minutes to halftime.

Eugene Lubanga pulled back for the Oilers off a kick before his try was converted for a 7-7 scoreline.

Elkeans Musonye landed the second try for a 12-7 lead.

In the second half, Steve Arunga stretched the lead to 17-14 before Nakuru scored off a kick by Javan Otieno.

Just like in the quarter-final, Amos Obae played a crucial role once again, this time rising off the ruck and bulldozing his way to score under the posts for a 21-17 lead. His try was enough to send the sid to the final.
