13:54 EAT 03/04/2018
AFC Leopards v Tusker.
Ingwe suffered a heavy defeat to Tusker while Mathare United maintained their perfect start to the season with another win against Chemelil Sugar

A total of 19 goals were scored in week eight of Kenyan Premier League. Once again, Goal takes a look at the key events that unfolded during the long Easter holiday.

  • AFC Leopards coach Dennis Kitambi.

    #1 Kitambi loses first match

    It wasn’t a good Easter Monday for AFC Leopards interim Coach Dennis Kitambi and his charges after the Tanzanian suffered his first lose since he took over the team following the ouster of Robert Matano in March. Kitambi’s four-match winning streak was brought to a halt by Tusker in a 4-2 defeat at Kericho Green Stadium. Gor Mahia striker, Timothy Otieno and defender Lloyd Wahome scored in either half to hand Tusker a deserved win against a ten-man Ingwe.

  • Mathias Kigonya of Sofapaka.

    #2 Goalkeepers make headline

    Two goalkeepers were in the headlines, once for all the good reasons while the other, Gabriel Andika was on the wrong side of history. Sofapaka custodian, Mathias Kigonya scored his third goal of the season in Batoto ba Mungu’s victory over a hapless Nakumatt FC. Andika, on the other hand, will have to miss Ingwe’s next two games after he was sent off in his side’s 4-2 defeat to Tusker.

  • Tusker coach Sam Timbe in action.j

    #3 Tusker pull second win

    Under pressure Tusker FC coach Sam Timbe eventually ended his four-match winless streak with a huge victory over AFC Leopards. The Brewers, who last celebrated maximum points in a 2-1 win over Nzaia Sugar on February 14, inflicted the biggest defeat to Ingwe in a 4-2 win on Monday. Striker Timothy Otieno and defender Lloyd Wahome each scored a brace to propel the former champions to top ten on the KPL log.

  • Cliff Nyakeya of Mathare United.

    #4 Mathare erase another record

    Mathare United continued their fine run following a 1-0 win over Chemelil Sugar on Friday. The ‘slum boys’ went into the match with history working against them. Francis Kimanzi had only won twice in the last 15 meetings between the sides, but just as they ended their nine-match winless run against Sony Sugar two weeks ago, Mathare, once again erased the negative script against KPL opponents as they work their ways up the ladder. Cliff Nyakeya scored the lone goal that ended Mathare United’s poor run against the Millers.
