Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side KCB FC turned on style in the second half as they hammered Vihiga United 3-0 in Sunday’s early kick-off at Kakamega County’s Bukhungu Stadium.

Both teams were evenly poised on paper and it seemed the match would end in a draw after a fruitless opening half but the visitors cranked to gear in the second half and never looked back, plundering three in 27 minutes.

Ezekiel Omulo, Kennedy Owino, Simon Munala and all scored as KCB secured all three points to leave Vihiga hanging dangerously above the relegation zone, just three points safe. 
At the Kenyatta Stadium Sony Sugar recovered from a shock start to win 2-1 against Posta Rangers thanks to goals from Robert Achema and Ambrose Ayoyi.
At Bukhungu, KCB forward Simon Munala gave the host custodian Michael Matasio a troublesome afternoon, swinging a right footed freekick into the right corner that was overruled for a foul in the box and later seeing his long lob hit the top of the net with Matasio off his line.

Clinton Kisiavuki had his shot blocked from close range after Bolton Omwenga set him up with a fine low cross from the left wing just a two minutes after the restart.

Badi Bakari made way for Gabriel Mugabo in the 52nd minute as the visitors pushed to break the deadlock.
Bolton Omwenga was on his way out moments later, with Ouna calling on Ezekiel Omulo and his first touch went into the back of the net, slotting home from Estone Esiye’s 57th minute free kick.

The did little to calm the rising emotions in the home camp, the fans calling for striking support and ball supply to key striker and captain Amos Kigadi, who was looking for his fifth goal of the season.

Forward Michael Isabwa and midfielder Steve Wakanya were pulled off in the 70th minute double change, Mururi tasking Dennis Wafula and Kevin Muhanji to successfully see out the afternoon.

Kigadi fired wide from a from a rebound after a long ball bounced off the cross bar, visiting goal keeper Omar Zamu helpless.

Mururi was left puzzled by his defence after two calamitous errors in the closing quarter of the game, Dennis Ng’ang’a boasting of a quick fire brace and setlle the scores at 3-0 in favour of the visitors, in an otherwise evenly matched game on paper.
