On Sunday, it was a Kami Kami Kabange and Benjamin Mukengerwa affair as the duo again stole the show against Charles Mushumba’s side, contributing a combined 34 points for Jean Bahufite’s team, who have only lost once this season, against Patriots in the first round.

REG won the first two quarters; 18-14 and 11-8 respectively while the hosts IPRC-South improved to claim the third quarter 14-12 before the visitors took the fourth quarter 19-23 hence wrapping up the game by a two-point margin; 64-55.
