Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker bounced back in a huge way to silence their critics with a superb performance that saw them beat Muhoroni Youth 3-0 at the Muhoroni Complex on Sunday.
Former Mathare United striker Jesse Were struck a hat-rick as the brewers made amends for their last two league defeats against Thika United and Chemelil Sugar.
Dunga opened the scores in the 19th minute before completing his brace in the 44th minute. He wound up the day for Matano’s men in the 62nd minute to move the brewers to 9th place on 16 points.
At the Chemelil Complex, Ulinzi Stars were 1-0 winners against Chemelil Sugar. The soldiers stamped their authority early in the match with Stephen Waruru’s shot opening the scores in the 2nd minute.
The soldiers would however, be overwhelmed in the second half, but they should give thanks to a sound defense and an on point goalkeeper Jactone Odhiambo, who kept them in the game.
James Macharia and Jared Obwoge were constant threats in the Ulinzi half and they missed chance after chance. The win now lifts Ulinzi Stars to 20 points, 4th on the log.
At Mbaraki grounds, hosts Bandari pulled an important 2-1 win over visiting Sofapaka in a result that pushed thew winners to third place on the standings but the former league champions are still second on the log.
Dennis Okoth scored both goals for the winners. His first was in the 20th minute and 23rd minute both times catching the Sofapaka defense napping.
Eugine Asike pulled one back for Sofapaka in the 45th minute but it was too little as the homeside hang onto the lead to maintain an-unbeaten run at home.
Bandari looked dangerous from the word go and had their first chance early in the match with Abdulatif Omar testing Duncun Ochieng in goal. On the other hand of the pitch, Danson Kago made a decent attempt
beating two defenders with an incredible turn but his powerful shot went just wide.
Sony.......................1 Karuturi Sports.....0
A 9th minute penalty scored by Sylvester Wanyama decided this match in favor of Sony Sugar, who moved two places up from the relegation zone.
It was the second straight win for Sony, who last weekend stopped visiting Western Stima 2-1 and has certainly eased pressure on coach Sammy Omollo.
