Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) was defeated by Kabras Sugar 17–13 who won the Victoria Cup on Saturday.
At the Kakamega Showground, where they were playing in their own backyard, Kabras held a 17-8 halftime lead after a good first 40 minutes, but they had to stave off a stronger charge from their crosstown opponents in the second half to win.
Nelson Babu broke through early to score the game's opening try for MMUST, but Eric Cantona was unable to successfully convert.
In order to tie the score, the hosts scored through David Williams, and Ntabeni Dukisa also missed the extra points.
Moments later, MMUST paid for a moment of confusion when Dukisa scored from a tight angle on the second attempt. Dukisa completed his hat trick, giving Kabras a 17-8 lead going into the break.
Lameck Ambetsa (pictured above) of MMUST scored the lone try of the second half while Kabras barely managed to cross the try line.
Teams from the Rift Valley, Nyanza, and Western regions participated in the first edition of Victoria Cup as part of the preseason exercises leading up to the start of the Kenya Cup season in less than two weeks.
