Homeboyz’ Paul Akatch scored the first try of the match in the 6th minute. An attempt to convert went short. Impala’s Moenga David immediately cancelled the Deejayz’ lead, his going over the try line just a few seconds after restart ensured a 5-5 scoreline at the 7th minute. Amon Wafula drilled the Deejayz ahead after kicking over a penalty at the 8th minute. Anthony Odhiambo put his name on the score-sheet after scoring in the 10th minute. His attempt at converting went unsuccessful. A defensive error immediately after restart gave Homeboyz perfect opportunity to leap-frog the Gazelles. A try borne out of blistering speed in attack by Amon Wafula tipped over the scoreboard. The conversion that followed was struck beautifully, giving the deejays the 13-10 lead with 4 minutes of the first half to spare. Another error in defence gifted the boys in yellow a scoring opportunity, which Kelvin Agwembo did not hesitate to grab. Wafula converted to send Homeboyz into half-time, smiling with a 20-10 scoreline. Wafula scored another try for Homeboyz in the 47th minute. Impala’s David Moenga scored at the corner in the 48th minute. Anthony Odhiambo converted to send the board reading 17-25.

Homeboyz centre – Victor Omondi confirmed Impala’s exit from the Mwamba Cup when he coasted into the try box at the 70th minute. His try was converted by Wafula.

Resolution Impala Saracens Director Of Rugby – Fred Ollows
Our record in Mwamba Cup has not been impressive over the years. Our defence fell apart. Our kick off receipt was also not up to the mark. It is good we have spotted our errors during this midweek contest. It has opened our eyes to what needs fixing before we face Nakuru in the ESS competition this Saturday 16th March 2019 at the Impala Club
