Kenya Cup Week 5 Review and Table Standings before Xmass

Mwamba RFC kept their hopes of reaching the 2015/2016 Kenya Cup play-offs alive by beating Strathmore Leos 19-11 at Jamhuri Park on Saturday to end their much hyped unbeaten record.

Mwamba outscored Strathmore by two tries to one in the contest which is Strathmore leos first defeat of the season.

Kulabu started the match with Lavin Asego at 10 with Shaban Ahmed at the blind wing and Humphrey Kayange got to the starting 15 at number 6. With no doubt Mwamba delivered one of their best performances against the tournament’s form side.

Inspired in attack by winger Gregory Odhiambo, Mwamba scored their 1st try in the opening quater displaying the renowned dominance that has been missing for much of the season.

Tito Oduk, playing in his preferred number 8 position, gave Kulabu the edge with 3 penalties.

Strathmore responded with penalties and a try that brought the game to a close 14-11 in favor of mwamba but that was not the end.

Mwamba put more pressure on the struggling Strathmore in their 22 then Lavin’s brilliance checked in when he picked up an intercept, 10m sprint and made a one hand dive to make the scores 19-11. That celebration though. “Someone please caption what you think they were saying, many argue it was something like “Unbeaten what”
