Kabras rallied from a  10-17 deficit at the interval  to first tie the game in regulation time before posting a 22-17 win over hosts Menengai Cream Homeboyz at the ASK Jamhuri Park on April 8, 2017.

The deejays raced into a 5-17 lead before Kabras regrouped, landing just before the interval for a 10-17 half time score Champions Kabras Sugar rallied from a 10-17 deficit at the interval to first tie the game in regulation time before posting a 22-17 win over hosts Menengai Cream Homeboyz in Kenya Cup semifinal action at the ASK Jamhuri Park on Saturday 8 April 2017.

The two sides were locked in a 17-17 stalemate at full time before Kabras struck the all-important try in the first period of extra time and held on to this lead to the end, reaching their third successive Kenya Cup final while setting up a repeat of the 2014/15 final with KCB who vanquished Quins 19-12 in the other semifinal at Ruaraka.

Meanwhile KCB Fullback Darwin Mukidza booted home 14 points as KCB reached the Kenya Cup final with a 19-12 win over SportPesa Quins in the semifinal played at a rain soaked KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka on April 8, 2017.

Mukidza drilled home a penalty off an early Quins infringement to put the hosts 3-0 up before converted Moses Amusala’s try for a 10-0 score.  He would then trade penalties with Quins’  center David Ambunya as KCB took a 13-3 lead into the breather.

Quins were intent on keeping their ambitions alive, Ambunya’s three penalty goals off KCB offenses brought the visitors to within a point of the bankers.

Mukidza drilled home two penalties as the bankers defended to the final whistle, reaching the Kenya Cup final for the first time since the 2014/15 final.
