Quins up to third in Kenya Cup rugby

03 February 2014, 14:35

Nairobi - Lunch Bar Quins leapfrogged Strathmore Leos into third place with a 22-10 win over visiting Mwamba RFC in a rescheduled Kenya Cup fixture at the RFUEA Grounds on Saturday 1 February 2014. The hosts went 10-0 up inside the opening five minutes courtesy of quickfire tries from Tony Mutai and Arthur Ochieng' before the game's tempo slowed down, Mwamba finally able to get possession with Lavin Asego pulling the strings. They would make inroads and scored from a Brian Kivasya penalty that cut the deficit to 10-3.

The game would be characterized by a series of errors, decision making and ball handling proving too tall a task for both sides on several occasion. 

Mark Okwaro's storming run gained Mwamba good ground but his final delivery was gathered by Quins fullback Sidney Ashioya who ran 70 meters to score at the corner, the scores 15-3 to the hosts. Dennis Muhanji would land Quins bonus try, pouncing on another Mwamba error and racing clear to score under the posts. Eden Agero slotted home the conversion for a 22-3 Quins lead at the break.

It was more of the same when the second half resumed, errors characterizing the opening quarter. Mwamba would lose the influential Lavin Asego through injury but his replacement Shaban Ahmed acquitted himself well, his spadework setting up Kivasya who grounded for a Mwamba try and conversion, the scores 22-10 at this point.

Tempers would soon flare, both sets of players involved in a scuffle, probably as a result of the emotional pressure that comes along with fight for a playoff berth. Center referee Andre Karani would soon restore order, issuing a yellow card to diminutive Quins number eight Brian Okwomi. 

Mwamba would play with their tails up, looking to put more points on the board but ran out of time, Karani blowing the final whistle, a victory for Quins that extinguished Mwamba's playoff hopes. 

The full compliment of league matches resumes next weekend.
