Kabras Sugar clinch fourth consecutive Enterprise Cup title


Kabras Sugar clinched the 2024 Enterprise Cup title on Saturday, marking their fourth consecutive championship victory with a commanding 32-20 win over arch-rivals KCB.

The thrilling final took place at the RFUEA Grounds in Nairobi, capping off an unbeaten season for the dominant sugar millers.

The match started with a bang as Kabras Sugar seized the initiative early. In the third minute, Humphrey Asiligwa broke through the midfield and, with a burst of speed, touched down between the posts.

Ntabeni Dukisa’s successful conversion gave Kabras a quick 7-0 lead. KCB’s Elvis Namusasi responded by reducing the deficit with a penalty, making it 7-3. However, Dukisa soon restored Kabras’ seven-point advantage with a penalty of his own, pushing the score to 10-3.

The first half saw a flurry of penalties, with Namusasi and Dukisa trading kicks. Namusasi added another three points for KCB, but Dukisa ensured Kabras stayed ahead, converting another penalty to make it 13-6 by the 30th minute.

The game took a dramatic turn when Namusasi was shown a red card for a high tackle on Kabras fullback Erick Cantona. Cantona was stretchered off and replaced by Hillary Salano. Despite the numerical advantage, Kabras couldn’t extend their lead before halftime, going into the break 13-6 up.

The second half saw Kabras Sugar’s prowess on full display. Dukisa’s moment of individual brilliance came as he dummied past two KCB defenders to score a try, which he then converted, extending the lead to 20-6. KCB, playing with 14 men, briefly rallied when Ahmed Shaban crossed the whitewash, narrowing the gap to 20-13.

However, Kabras responded swiftly. Rising star James Olela scored in the corner, making it 25-13. KCB’s Michael Wamalwa kept the game alive with a try, converted by Levy Amunga, reducing the score to 25-20.

Any hopes of a KCB comeback were dashed when Eugene Sifuna scored a late try for Kabras, which Dukisa converted, sealing a 32-20 victory.

This win not only reinforces Kabras Sugar’s dominance in Kenyan rugby but also completes a remarkable double for the season, as they closed out the 2023-2024 season unbeaten.

The sugar millers have once again proven their mettle, adding another prestigious trophy to their cabinet and cementing their legacy in the sport.
