Homeboyz paid tribute to their late forward Andrew Wekesa in emphatic fashion when they beat Blak Blad 32-16 in a rescheduled Kenya Cup clash on Saturday to move up to third on the log.

The game was postponed when Homeboyz lost Wekesa to a senseless murder on January 16 and spurred by his memory, they went on to run in five tries, two conversions and a penalty for the bonus victory that saw them jump above Kabras Sugar to third with 47 points.

Champions Kabras (45) slid a slot to fourth following the result.

It was the sixth straight victory for the Homeboyz with Blak Blad following the scalps of Kenya Harlequins, Impala Saracens, Mwamba RFC, Mean Machine and the current log leaders KCB.

Elsewhere visiting Resolution Impala Saracens built on a 12-0 half time lead, coasting to a 24-7 win over Nondescripts in another rescheduled Kenya Cup clash played at the RFUEA Grounds in Nairobi.

The Sarries landed four tries and three conversions against Nondies single five-pointer and a conversion.

The win sees the Sarries stay fifth on point’s difference from Kabras with both deadlocked at 45.

KCB’s Darwin Mukidza leads the Kenya Cup overall points scoring charts with 108 points coming off eight tries, 25 conversions and six penalties.

He is followed by Harlequins Kevin Keegan who has 88 from three five-pointers, 20 conversions and 11 penalties while Levy Amunga from Blak Blad rounds the top three with 73 from four tries, seven conversions, 10 penalties and three drop goals.

Kelvin Masai (Menengai Cream Homeboyz) has 59 off three tries, 16 conversions and four penalties in fourth with Kabras Sugar’s  Ugandan duo of mid-season signing Philip Wokorach and Ivan Chirabo rounding off the top five with 52 having each scored three tries, eight conversions and seven penalties.
