Kenya Cup newcomers Menengai Oilers produced another magnificent performance in match day 14 edging defending Enterprise champions Homeboyz 26-24 in a tight ‘Menengai derby’ at the RFUEA ground on Saturday.

Gibson Weru charges scored two converted tries and four penalties against the “Deejayz” three converted tries losing their tenth match this season.

The Nakuru based side maintained their eighth position with 31 points while Homeboyz stay ninth with 28 points, missing the playoffs slot.

Oilers Austin Simwa was the man of the match scoring four penalties, a try and a conversion while the former Kenya Sevens rugby international Leon Adongo scored two converted tries for Homeboyz.

Vincent Mwikali scored the second try for Oilers to give them the huge victory, while Max Kangeri scored the third try for Homeboyz but it wasn’t enough to give his side victory at full time.
