Kabras Sugar reclaimed the Kenya Cup with a 34-28 victory over Menengai Oilers in a tightly contested final at The Bull Ring in Kakamega on Saturday 12 March 2022.

Coleman Were, formerly of Kabras Sugar scored the game’s opening try off a rolling maul with Geoffrey Ominde converting for a 7-0 lead.

Jone Kubu cut the deficit with a penalty for Kabras moments later before Ominde added a penalty and drop goal to put Oilers 13-3 up.

Andrew Odero would then play in Davis Nyaundi who went over the whitewash, the scores reading 18-3 in Oilers favor before Kubu went over the chalk, Kabras trailing 18-8 at the break.

Another Ominde penalty after the restart saw Oilers go 21-8 up before Kubu converted Teddy Akala’s try for a 21-15 score.

Byrceson Agesa then scored for Kabras, Kubu sure with the twos as Kabras led for the first time, 22-21 the scores after 60 minutes, Kabras playing with pep after the introduction of Brian Tanga in place of Barry Robinson at scrum half.

Two more Kubu penalties saw Kabras go 28-21 up but Oilers were still in it, substitute winger Timothy Okwemba landing a try, Ominde converting for a 28-28 score.

Two more penalties from man of the match Kubu saw Kabras lift their first title since 2016.
