Cassa Mbungo has last laugh against former employers AFC Leopards

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 19 – Andre Cassa Mbungo had the last laugh on Friday evening as Bandari FC beat AFC Leopards 2-1 in a Football Kenya Federation premier League clash at the Mbaraki Complex in Mombasa.

A first half brace from William Wadri was the catalyst Mbungo’s Bandari needed and despite Marvin Nabwire’s strike, the home side managed to hold on to the lead and hand Patrick Aussems his first taste of defeat at the helm of Ingwe.

Wadri broke the deadlock after three minutes with a neat finish before doubling his tally 10 minutes later when he tapped into the net after dancing past the keeper.

AFC drew level in the 22nd minute when Nabwire finished off a corner from Austine Ochieng. Nabwire had a chance to make it two with a shot at goal which was saved by Justin Ndikumana in the Bandari goal.

However, Leopards could not get back into level terms despite piling in the pressure.

Meanwhile in Kericho, Ulinzi Stars beat Sofapaka 2-0 with second half goals from Omar Boraafya and Oscar Wamalwa.

Boraafya broke the deadlock after 49 minutes when he tapped home from a Daniel Waweru cross before Wamalwa converted a penalty four minutes later.

Sofapaka will have a shot at revenge against the soldiers as the two have been pooled together in the FKF Betway Cup.
