Jeremy Griffin flattened a defender, offloaded to Mark Kwemoi. Kwemoi passed to Dindi who opened up the scoreboard after 16 minutes of stubborn defence by Mean Machine. Kanyiri Kariuki converted to signal business. Although Kwemoi scored at the 36th minute & his effort complemented by Kariuki, he missed out of a clear scoring chance when he lost the ball forward while grounding it a minute later. Probably the eldest player in active Kenyan competition – Paul Oimbo crashed through 2 defenders at the 40th minute. Kanyiri skewed the ensuing attempt at making it 3/3 conversions.
HT: Resolution Impala Saracens Boks 19-0 Mean Machine RFC
Mean Machine RFC’s Sweny Bala drove into the try-box after a missed tackle by Mike Munyua. George Obala converted. Machine’s Joseph Kanyiri split the posts at the 54th minute to make it 19-10. Armed with a loud crowed, Machine could have got the ingredient they needed to get back in the game but Impala had interesting plans. Patrick Mutuku peeled off the back of the scrum before arriving at the try box in the 61st minute. Sidney Chacha scored in the 70th minute after clever play between him and Kariuki & Daniel Dindi’s devastating angle run sounded the bugle to announce Impala dominance. Kwemoi only managed to convert Chacha’s try.
