KPL Tit Bits: Sony Sugar extend dominance over Sofapaka

2:10 PM IST 16/07/18
Sofapaka v Sony Sugar.
A title contender in the first leg, Mathare United’s downward spiral has been a permanent factor every weekend, owing to their lackluster displays

  • Sofapaka U-20 coach John Baraza

    #1 Sony Sugar extends dominance

    Sony Sugar denied Sofapaka a chance to cut Gor Mahia’s lead at the top of the Kenyan Premier League to within six points after they handed Batoto Ba Mungu a 2-0 defeat on Sunday. Sofapaka have had a poor record against Sony in the last two seasons. Despite the fact that the sugar millers are currently struggling at the base of the log, they, for the fourth time, denied John Baraza’s side maximum points. Kevin Wesonga and Enock Agwanda’s second-half goals ensured that the Millers maintained their dominance over Elly Kalekwa owned side.

  • Elvis Rupia of Nzoia Sugar.

    #2 Rupia misses another chance

    Kenyan Premier League leading scorer Elvis Rupia missed a chance to stretch the lead after he sat out of the match against Chemelil Sugar. Rupia, who is topping the chart with 15 goals, is understood to be closing in on a deal to Zambian Premier League side Power Dynamos. Dynamos officials touched down in the country to negotiate a deal with Nzoia Sugar for the signature of Rupia, who has been on the radar of a number of clubs including AFC Leopards and Rayon Sports of Rwanda.

  • Ulinzi Stars v Thika United.

    #3 Ulinzi Stars keep better away record

    Ulinzi Stars have been firing washouts at home, but in all fairness, their away record has been something worth writing about. The soldiers under coach Dunstan Nyaudo, have only picked three wins at home this season, drawing six and losing two. Compared to their records on the road, Ulinzi Stars have picked six points from their last five games away. The latest was a 2-0 victory over Vihiga United at the Mumias Complex on Sunday.

  • Edwin Lavatsa of Wazito v Mathare United.

    #4 Mathare United plays another draw

    A title contender in the first leg, Mathare United’s downward spiral has been a permanent factor every weekend, owing to their lackluster displays and the many draws registered by Francis Kimanzi led-side. Just slightly over five weeks ago, Mathare United was firmly top of the table but they now find themselves sinking from the bottom five. A three-all draw with bottom-placed Wazito left Mathare United sixth on the log. The result was their fourth draw in the last five games, save for a 3-2 defeat against Sofapaka a week ago.

  • Gor Mahia crowned champions v Simba.

    #5 Gor Mahia still top of the table

    Of course, we cannot talk about the league without looking at the summit. Gor Mahia are still firmly tacked at the top despite the fact that they have been out of domestic action for the last two weeks. K’Ogalo have been busy away in Tanzania, taking part in Cecafa Kagame Cup but still returned to the country and found their place secured by a nine-point gap between them and Sofapaka, thanks to Sony Sugar, who beat Batoto Ba Mungu in Awendo.
