Stanbic 7s: Champs Homeboyz, Mwamba in Prinsloo semis
By Patrick Korir | Sun 18 Aug, 2019 13:38

Champions Homeboyz and runners-up Stanbic Mwamba all made way to the Prinsloo 7s semifinals after coming through tough quarterfinal cup games on Sunday 18 August 2019 at the Nakuru Athletics Club in the fourth leg of the ongoing Stanbic Bank (Stanbic 7s) National Sevens Circuit.

In the first last four game, Homeboyz hit Strathmore Leos 22-12 to be the first into the last four and Mwamba picked up the final slot after knocking out Kabras Sugar 19-12.

In between, home teams Nakuru RFC and Menengai Oilers saw off KCB and Impala Saracens to proceed.

Oilers, beaten to Dala 7s last weekend turned the tables on the team that denied them – KCB, to win the duel by a two-pointer; 14-12 to book champions Homeboyz in the semis.

Hosts Nakuru overrode Impala 14-7 to book a Stanbic Mwamba lot that surprisingly missed out on a top eight finish as Dala 7slast weekend.

In other games, Kenya Harlequin for once survive the chop, as had been the case in the opening two legs at Kakamega and Kabeberi, after seeing off a banter-laden clash with Western Bulls 24-19.

Quins, fifth placed winners at the event last year, will now contest the Challenge Trophy against Nondies after seeing off Northern Suburbs 35-12 in the semis. Nondies on their part beat Masinde Muliro University (MMUST) 12-10 in the other semi.
