NAIROBI, Kenya- Resolute Kenya Commercial Bank RFC (KCB) spanked Kenya Harlequins RFC 46-13 on Saturday afternoon in the Kenya Cup semifinal to set up a Kabras Sugar FC final date.

The reigning Kenya Cup champions seemed to be in the mood as they dominated proceedings at the KCB Sports Club to continue to stamp their authority in the local rugby scene.

The bankers kicked off the encounter with bang recording two early tries within the first ten minutes courtesy of Andrew Amonde and Isaac Njoroge with Jacob Ojee adding the extras.

This sparked Harlequins into life as they managed the KCB attack well, applying more pressure at the breakdowns.

Quins then put three points on the board to make the score 12-3 at the half-hour mark.

With the help of scrumhalf Samuel Asati, KCB got their third try of the game with flanker Amonde getting his second try of the game.

The ever-reliable Ojee was on hand yet again to add the extras, the scoreline reading 19-3 to KCB.

The second half kicked off with the home side looking to add to their lead earning an early penalty which that man Ojee converted with ease.

Shortly afterwards, Ojee was sent to the bin for what the referee deemed worthy of a yellow card after an illegal infringement.

With KCB down to 14 men, Quins took the advantage and scored through flanker Peter Misangu to make the score 22-8 after 55 minutes on the clock.

Ojee was in fine kicking form as he added a further three points from a penalty kick leaving the score at 32-8 to KCB.

Fly half Eden Agero put a further five points into the scoreboard after an overlap was created on the left side to cross over the chalk. Scores reading 32-13.

The reigning Kenya Cup champions seemed a little rattled by the pressing Quins outfit forcing running plays through the midfield trying to add their bonus points.

KCB were not done with the scoring and fullback Isaac Njoroge got his second of the afternoon with Ojee adding the further two points once again to leave the score at 39-13 with three minutes left on the clock.
