KCB RFC overcame an early deficit to dismantle varsity boys Catholic Monks 79-19 in their second match of the 2023/24 Kenya Cup fixture match played at the CUEA grounds, Lang’ata.
The Monks took an early lead within the initial minutes of the game, capitalising on a momentary lapse in the banker’s defense, securing the bragging rights on the first try.

Thomas Jimbo, Felix Ojoo, and Elvis Olukusi followed suit, each grabbing a try, enabling the visitors to establish a commanding 24-16 lead by halftime.
In the second half, Vincent Onyala and Austin Sikutwa secured a brace each, while Elvis Olukusi and Felix Ojoo added their second tries of the game before Bob Muhati signed off the scoring for the bankers.
Despite the dominant performance, KCB was somewhat inefficient in try-conversions during the second half, preventing them from securing the maximum points from the game.
Commenting on the match, KCB’s Andrew Amonde noted, “This was a fair game, and I must congratulate the boys. We started on a low but picked up the momentum, and the results speak for themselves."
"As the league is in its early stages, our focus is on building a strong team to ensure victories in the upcoming matches.”
KCB faced the challenge of missing the services of Darwin Mukidza, who sustained an injury during the league opener against Nondies last weekend.
Amonde shared insights into the team's composition: "We are introducing new and young talent to the squad. Today, they played exceptionally well, filling in for some of our sidelined players. We hope to have a full squad for the next game.”
