Zoo Kericho started their FKF National Super League campaign on a winning note after they caged Modern Coast Rangers in an entertaining match played at KPA Mbaraki Sports Club.
Rangers went offensive from first whistle with diminutive winger George Ian whipping dangerous crosses that went begging upfront. After containing the opponents in the first quarter, Zoo Kericho came back into the game with Dominic Kiprono testing goalkeeper Bryan Musa in the 16th and 40th minutes respectively
Their efforts paid off dividends on the stroke of half-timr when Billy Luvai completed a move by Kiprono to curl a volley past advancing keeper Bryan Musa.
Rangers coach Mohammed Mchule Mohaa made substitution pulling out former Sogfa Paka striker Peter Kagotho and bringing in Anthony Mbuthia .Rangers best moment came in 63 rd min when George Ian broke the defense but his shot was blocked by zoo keeper Vincent Misikhu:
Modern Coast Rangers face MOYAS in their next league match on Wednesday at Camp Toyoyo in Nairobi while Zoo Kericho hosts St. Joseph at Kericho Green Stadium on the same day.
