Goal Kenya.
It was a second straight victory for the Bankers, who are now out of the relegation zone

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) new boys KCB continued with their good run in the top tier with a 3-0 win against Vihiga United on Sunday.

KCB came into the match fresh from their morale-boosting 1-0 win against Mathare United, and they knew a win away would go a long way in securing their KPL status.

Vihiga had done exceptionally well against Sofapaka in their mid-week game, claiming a point from their 1-1 draw.

The hosts kept the Nairobi-based side at bay for 55 minutes before the first goal went in, courtesy of the on-loan striker Ezekiel Odera, who had just come in.

Despite pressure from the hosts, Kennedy Owino and Simon Abuko ensured the points are safe for the Frank Ouna led-side with late goals.
