Dennis Mwanja's charges stepped up the intensity and were rewarded just before the breather when Amunga played in Kenya Sevens International Vincent Onyala to score at the corner for a 10-5 lead at the break.
On resumption, Davis Chenge bullied past the Oilers defence to score an unconverted try to lead 15-5. Michael Wanjala was soon to get his name on the score sheet with a well-taken try to extend the bankers lead to 20-5 with internationals Jacob Ojee and Andrew Amonde sealing the victory with a try each in the closing minutes of the match.
