Kabras Sugar and Quins secured their tickets for the semifinals over the weekend after gaining victory against stubborn Resolution Impala and Mwamba sides at a margin of 21-18 and 32-31 respectively at Impala and RFUEA grounds.

Kabras Sugar, who are chasing their second consecutive title, will now meet Homeboyz at Jamhuri Park show grounds while Quins are up against Kenya Commercial Bank in the semi-finals next Saturday.

Both Kabras Sugar and Quins lost to Homeboyz and KCB 34-22 and 29-26 respectively during the regular season.

Homeboyz, who are chasing their maiden Kenya Cup title since their debt in the top flight league in 2013, have been in form this season, beating all the big wigs KCB, Quins, Resolution Impala, Kabras, Mwamba and Nakuru to top the league in the regular season for the first time.

“I know Homeboyz are enjoying their best form ever, having won against all the top sides.

They are a more organised and physical side,” said Kabras Sugar deputy coach Anthony Ogot. “It won’t be any easy game but we are ready for them.”

This is Kabras Sugar’s third year in Kenya Cup, having made it to the final in 2013/2014 before winning the 2015/2016 title.

Quins, who have lifted the Kenya Cup eight times, have not won since 2012 while the four times champions KCB won last in 2015.
