Cash-strapped Chemelil Sugar sink again in top match

Goal Kenya.
The win, a first since February 11 when Sony beat Ulinzi Stars, saw the Awendo side move a place up from the bottom

Sony Sugar condemned Chemelil Sugar to a 1-0 defeat in a league match played on Saturday.

Chemelil have been going through one of their toughest moments as the club grapples with mass exodus of player with reports indicating that up to 10 first team players have since terminated their contracts.

This is due to the fact that the club has not honoured contracts with players, who have reportedly gone for close to eleven months without pay.

But fellow millers, Sony Sugar did not care much about their colleague’s misfortune when they handed them a second successive defeat to add to last weekend’s loss to Kakamega Homboyz.

Chemelil Sugar was reduced to 10 men after John Kuol was given his marching orders late in the second half. The Awendo-based side took the lead through Stephen Ouma’s well-curled free-kick to hand Sony the first victory in 13 games.

The win, a first since February 11 when Sony beat Ulinzi Stars, saw Sony Sugar move a place up from the bottom. Sony Sugar, who will next take on league leaders Gor Mahia in Kisumu next Wednesday, jumped to 17th on the 18-man table with 14 points.  

Sony Sugar XI: Kelvin Omondi, Benard Omondi, Olare Samwel, Kevin Oluoch, Martin Werunga, Okiring Owino, Omondi Clinton, Frederick Onyango, Derrick Otanga, Tobias Otieno and Steve Otieno.

Chemelil XI: Richard  Aimo, Kelvin Wasonga, Vincent, Mahiga, Jacob Odhiambo, John Kuol, Nicholas Akoko, Ominde Faraj, Stephen Njoroge, Charles Kwaka, Felix Oluoch and Philip Muchuma.
