Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) staged their best performance this year to win the last series of the National Castle Milk Stout Mombasa Driftwood Rugby Sevens circuit last evening at the Mombasa Sports Club.
Despite the win, it was Kenya Harlequin who came out smiling after amassing enough points to be crowned the 2012 National Sevens champions.
Quins join Chairman’s Select and Kenya Shujaa to represent Kenya in the Safaricom Safaris Sevens set for this weekend at Nyayo National Stadium.
In last evening’s final match of the main event, KCB staged a remarkable performance to beat Quins 17-10 to claim the Driftwood title.
The bankers made their mark immediately felt when Edwin Salamba and Ken Isindu scored two unconverted tries to take a 10-0 lead at half time.
In the second half, Dennis Mwanja added another try which was converted by Collins Kimani.
Quins redoubled their efforts before they scored two quick unconverted touch-downs through Brian Ikuli and Victor Sudi, which were not good enough to beat KCB.
En route to the final, KCB beat Homeboyz 17-7, while Quins stopped Strathmore 12-0 in another semi-final match.
In the Plate finals, Impala were the winners after beating Nakuru 17-0. In the semi-final, Impala defeated Blak Blad 17-7, while Nakuru stopped the host Mombasa Sports Club 12-5.
In the bowl event, Western Bulls clobbered Mwamba 10-0. The winners had beaten Mean Machine 15-5, while Mwamba stopped Daystar 17-0 on their way to the final.
Comras hit Stormers 12-5 to win the shield title. On their way to the final, Comras defeated Kenya College of Accountancy 12-0, while Stormers edged out Mombasa Sports Club Two 26-7.
