Kabras Sugar clinched their maiden Enterprise Cup title after handing Impala Saracens a 37-7 hiding at the RFUEA grounds yesterday.

The win saw the sugar millers complete a 15s double after their second string side defeated Strathmore Leos 40-27 to lift the Mwamba Cup. 

It was a perfect response from the Kakamega-based side, who lost to KCB in the Kenya Cup final last weekend.

The Henly Du Plessis coached-side took a commanding 21-0 halftime lead before completing the rout with 16 more points.

With the defeat, Impala have now lost two Enterprise Cup finals in as many years, having fallen to Homeboyz in the 2018 edition. 

Paul Abuto received an offload from South African Claude Johannes to open the floodgates before Philip Wokorach added the conversion.

Wokorach, who was feted as the league’s top try scorer last weekend, showed great skill to score Kabras’ second before an infringement by Impala earned them a penalty try.

The start of the second half saw Jone Kubu split the posts with a penalty to extend Kabras’ lead to 24-0.

Impala’s poor handling allowed Hillary Odhiambo to dispossess them before racing from the centre of the field to ground the ball unchallenged.

Wokorach added the extras as Kabras held onto a 31-0 lead. 

Saul Kivumbi cut the deficit for Impala as he dived over for their first try before Kabras scored two penalties in succession to seal the win.
