Allan Wanga scored his 17th goal of the season at Sudi Stadium as he helped Kakamega Homeboyz beat Nzoia Sugar 2-0 on Thursday.

Dennis Odhiambo was the other scorer for Kakamega Homeboyz in a tense affair in Bungoma. The win helped the visitors earn vital points to keep them chasing the top three spots, one of their season’s top targets.

Meanwhile, at Awendo Stadium, Sony Sugar got a 2-0 win over visitors KCB. Sony Sugar’s lead striker Derrick Otanga bagged his 12th goal of the running campaign in the 55th minute of play.

Salmon Omollo had powered the Sugar Millers ahead in the 35th minute and Otanga’s strike confirmed the home side's win and condemned the Bankers to another loss after winning the previous match against Mount Kenya United 2-0.

Finally, Posta Rangers defeated Ulinzi Stars 1-0 at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru and the victory might prove very vital at the end of the season for them.

Posta Rangers are trying to race clear from the play-offs position currently held by Vihiga United who were defeated by Bandari on Wednesday.
