Defending champions KCB and hunters Kabras Sugar reached Kenya Cup final for a third year in a row after winning semifinal duels on Saturday May 11, 2019.

KCB saw off Kenya Harlequin 46-13 at KCB Sports Club while Kabras Sugar beat visiting Mwamba RFC 23-11 in Kakamega.

Both sides will contest the final on Saturday May 18 in Kakamega for the first time ever. 

KCB and Kabras Sugar have met in the last two finals with KCB winning both -29-24 in 2018 and 36-8 in 2017- with both matches being hosted by KCB.

At KCB Sports Club, Kenya 7s international Andrew Amonde(2), Isaac Njoroge(2), Griffin Musila and Peter Karia went over for KCB with Jacob Ojee booting six points.

Peter Misango and Eden Agero scored Quins’ two tries with Eric Shikukuu splitting the posts with a three pointer as the Ngong road side couldn’t match the bankers for a third time this season.

Quins head coach Charles Cardovillis described KCB as "a quality side. Like I said last week if make the mistakes we made we ar going to suffer. The scoreboard tells it off."

"We were wasteful with the ball. Knock-ons, forward passes but again it’s back to the drawing board. It has been a tough side," he told the matchday TV presenter.

"Just the way they celebrate the victory we must also feel the pain and it’s back to the drawing board. Some hard decisions have to be made. Who are the players to retain and who will let go."

His counterpart Curtis Olago picked a few areas to work on before heading to the forest. 
"Of course we won but there are a few things to work on. Like off the ball we lacked of concentration we are going to sort going to Kabras."

In Kakamega, Kabras Sugar ran in two converted tries and three penalties against Mwamba’s one try and two penalties.
