NAIROBI, Kenya, May 18 – Tusker FC consolidated their lead at the top of the Kenya Premier League (KPL) with a 5-0 thrashing of Bandari on Sunday.
James Nandwa’s charges gave the coastal side no quarter at the Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani as Nathan Mutenza, Joseph Emeka, Noah Abich, Fred Ojwang and Augustine Etemesi found the back of the net for the former champions and their fifth straight win.
Tusker regained their place at the top of the table after Sofapaka went top for a few hours after their 1-0 win over Sony Sugar at Awendo on Saturday.
Bob Mugalia put Sofapaka ahead five minutes to full time to entrench his team in their commanding position on the log and enhance their credentials as serious title contenders at the first time of asking.
In another telling result, Gor Mahia’s three match winning streak was halted by Agro-Chemicals who beat the legendary side 1-0 at Muhoroni.
Rising star Hussein Puzzo delivered the goods for Agro who are 13th on the log after 13 matches while “Kogalo’ who are 10th have to go back to the drawing board if they are to reignite their season.
AFC leopards are still bottom of the table after a barren draw with Thika United on Sunday the Thika Municipal stadium.
Despite only netting a single point, ‘Ingwe’ will be flattered by the fact that their leaky defence did not concede a goal against one of the standout attacking sides in the league.
Defending champions Mathare United continue to be a pale shadow of themselves after a one all draw to strugglers Red Berets.
United let go of a 1-0 lead by allowing Edwin Oduor to convert a free kick to tie the match with 18 minutes remaining.
The result leaves Mathare ninth on the table while Red Berets are languishing in 14th place.
