Last season’s runners up Kabras Sugar maintained their perfect start to the 2021-2022 Kenya Cup season after seeing off Top Fry Nakuru 31-3 in a match played at the Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday.

The sugar millers ran in five tries to pick a bonus win in Nakuru that sees them remain top on 10 points.

Kabras started the match on the front foot after taking an early 7-0 lead through South African fly-half Ntabeni Dukisa who crossed over and converted his own try.

Scrum-half Dan Angwech stretched the lead to 12-0 with Dukisa failing to convert as the Kakamega based outfit went to the break with a slender lead.

In the final half, Keith Embaga crossed over with Dukisa adding the extras for a 19-0 lead before Nakuru scored a penalty for 19-3 score line.

The visitors sealed the win after forwards Teddy Akala and Hillary Mwanjiwa landed the fourth and fifth try for the sugar men.
