Second row Byron Ochieng, fullback George Onyulo and eighth-man Celentine Otieno scored the tries, the last one in the second half. Fly half and captain Brian Ratilla was responsible for all the kicks. In Damu Changa lock David Odhiambo scored the deciding try.

The Ofafa lads showed no forms of fatigue as they played a day after winning the Blackrock title at St. Mary's school.

The Sunday games were the first for Patch in this year's competition while for Ofafa it was the second following up on a 3-0 win over Muhuri Muchiri and 21-14 loss to champions Upper Hill.
