Defending champions Kabras Sugar came from behind to see off Kenya Harlequin 27-12 to pick their third straight bonus point victory of the season in a Kenya Cup match played at the Kakamega Showground on Saturday.
Bryceson Adaka scored a brace as Ephraim Oduor and Brian Tanga added two more in the win that takes them to joint top with KCB on 15 points.
The visitors took an early 7-0 lead when Lucky Dewald left the Kabras back line for dead with a defense-splitting run to score and convert his try.
Kabras who lost 35-24 when the two sides last met in their final preseason match responded with a penalty converted by South African Ntabeni Dukisa to cut the gap to 7-3.
The three points gave life to the hosts who scored their first try through Adaka who touched down a corner post-try that Dukisa failed to convert. Kabras however took a narrow 8-7 lead.
Oduor would soon join the score sheet landing another corner post try that Dukisa failed to convert again with Kabras leading 13-7.
Quins would respond with their own try to cut the gap to 13-12 at halftime after Dewald missed the twos.
In the final half, it was all Kabras as Brian Tanga and Adaka added to the score sheet for a 27-12 win.
