25 goals were scored in the Kenya top tier last weekend despite Nzoia Sugar failing to turn up against Bandari FC at Mbaraki and Goal notes key points

  • Dennis Sikhayi of AFC Leopards

    Ng'ang'a and Sikhayi will improve Wazito

    Dennis Ng'ang'a and Dennis Sikhayi debuted for Wazito against Gor Mahia after sealing his move from KCB and AFC Leopards respectively. The duo had an excellent game against the defending champions.

    Both full-backs stopped K'Ogalo from using their flanks and offered help in attack. The two players brought stability in Wazito's rearguard and ensured the goalkeeper did not have much to do.

  • Bandari FC star Cliff KASUTI and Michael Madoya of Tusker.

    Tusker FC mean business

    The 11-time league champions ran riot on Saturday, defeating Chemelil Sugar 7-0 at Muhoroni. The result took the Robert Matano-led side to 31 points from 15 matches and a point less than leaders Gor Mahia.

    The Brewers are targeting the league title this season and results like this show their seriousness. The Ruaraka based side is ruthless in front of goal and the technical bench is demanding more from the players to sustain the title push.

  • Kepha Aswani of Sofapaka takes on a Kisumu All-Stars player.

    Management failing Kisumu All-Stars

    The Kisumu based side suffered a 4-0 defeat against Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu Stadium. The result was a gift of ill preparation by All-Stars and their body language explained all.

    Empty promises have been the order of the day in the team. Players have not been paid from July and the technical bench is struggling to work with the almost non-existent training equipment. If nothing is done, the situation will become worse.

  • John Makwatta of AFC Leopards vs Sofapaka.

    John Makwatta proving his worth

    The AFC Leopards striker took his tally of the season to nine after bagging a hat-trick against Zoo Kericho on Sunday. The former Ulinzi Stars attacker showed great poaching instincts to help his team get maximum points.

    Makwatta made it clear he is targeting 20 or more goals this season and has so far managed almost half. If he maintains his scoring form, Ingwe will benefit a great deal and might be among the top teams at the end of the season.

  • Gor Mahia vs Wazito FC.

    Gor Mahia continue showing their class

    The defending champions once again proved their quality with a 1-0 win against an improved Wazito FC side on Saturday. Prior to the game, K'Ogalo had trained just twice owing to their financial status, but it did not stop them from winning.

    The message is clear, the 18-time league champions are not ready to surrender their title. They are still on top of their game and they do most of their talking on the pitch. They currently look unstoppable and are keen on going all the way.
