Homeboyz, KCB secure Kenya Cup home semis slots
Menengai Cream Homeboyz and KCB secured home semifinal qualification at the close of the Kenya Cup’s league phase on Saturday.
KCB who defeated Mwamba will host the winner between Kenya Harlequins or Mwamba in the semis play-offs while the Deejays will entertain either Impala Saracens or champions Kabras Sugar.
The Deejays rallied from a 14-25 deficit to tie 28-28 with Jamhuri Park co-tenants Nondescripts, a result that saw them top the Kenya Cup log with 67 points by virtue of landing four tires for a bonus point, one more than KCB who posted a bonus point 25-18 win over Mwamba at the KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka.
Mwamba, lying sixth heading into this fixture, posted a bonus point that saw them stay sixth and with that, earning a place in the playoffs after seventh ranked Top Fry Nakuru failed to garner the all-important bonus point in the 21-12 win over relegated Mean Machine.
The Quins 72-5 blitz of Strathmore Leos was not enough to see them breach the top two while Resolution Impala Saracens confirmed fourth slot with a 57-18 over Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad.
Kabras won the Ingo Derby with a 30-14 win over cross-town rivals Western Bulls, a result that condemned the Bulls to next season’s second tier KRU Championship.
