Mongers had the opponents’ infringements to thank when referee Charles Mungoma consequently awarded them a penalty try from scrum action.
Gabriel Aredo then led by example when he met a slightly high ball on the left flank before crashing over for an unconverted Warriors second reply.
The home side were just with in 6 points just before their hopes got soiled again. Chisano latched onto an uncontested ball to tip at the left corner.
David Otwi’s try and Kinyai’s conversion for Warriors took the game into half time with the former trailing by only four points.
When action resumed, Mongers’ Andrew Olweny further extended the visitors’ lead – having picked the ball from scrummage to ground home.
Paul Angana also added his contribution – having raced his way to score under the uprights also converting it single-handedly.
The scores were reading ‘Warriors 20-31 Mongers’ after the former’s Latif Abdallah also touched but Chisano had more tricks left in his hat.
The man of the match muscled his way to reach the try line for the third time to deliver Mongers’ last points of the day.
Otwi found more five points for Warriors with just 10 minutes left on the clock but there were just not enough to overturn the result.
