The Resolution Impala Saracens Boks backline defence will ask itself very difficult questions after it gave KCB a 14-0 headstart after only 6 minutes of play. These first 2 KCB tries were scored by Elphas Adunga & Jeff okwatch respectively. Stephen Osumba converted both. The Lions added an unconverted try at the 30th minute.

Impala’s Hannington Mmbaka scored at the 43rd minute, but the conversion attempt by Brian Opar went wide. KCB’s Stafford Abeka pounced on a loose ball and coasted into the try box. Osumba converted with ease. Impala’s Bernard Rotich scored from behind the scrum. Opar found the sweet-spot on the ensuing conversion attempt. KCB full-back – Elphas Adunga split the posts in the 63rd minute. Referee Duncan Kioko awarded Impala a penalty try after David Moenga was tackled without the ball in the KCB try-box. Many fans would have hoped that Impala could use the remainder 10 minutes in conjuring a surprise, but poor ball handling gifted KCB the go-forward ball. A penalty deep inside Impala territory gifted KCB with an extra 3 points.
