Enock Agwanda scored a brace as Sony Sugar beat Kariobangi Sharks  2-0 in a Kenyan Premier League match played at the Camp Toyoyo grounds on Sunday.

The burly Agwanda opened his account in the 34th minute from the penalty spot before adding his second at the hour mark to hand the sugar millers maximum points.

As a result of the defeat, Sharks went a place down on the league standings to ninth on 34 points as Sony climbed one up to eighth on 36 points.

There was little to separate the two sides in the early instances with chances coming on both ends. Sony goalie Kevin Omondi was tested early on, producing two outstanding saves to deny George Abege in the 7th and 21st minute. On the two occasions, Abege shot straight at the keeper, enabling him to come up with routine saves.

Sony also gave a fair share of attacks with Gad Matthews in the opposing goal  keeping out a goal bound free kick, and moments later watched as Enock Agwanda’s effort roll across his goal mouth.

The former Gor Mahia man made notable contributions, slipping in a pass to his team mate Michael Atudo in the 28th minute in the box but the latter failed to connect, much to the dissatisfaction of the technical bench.

The constant probing by Sony continued, Apudo once more in his element winning a penalty after John Kuol fouled him. Agwanda stepped up for the spot kick and slotted at the centre of Gad Matthews net.

In the 34th minute, Omondi dived to his right to tip a shot from Shafan Otugi for an unsuccessful corner.

Sony could double the lead in the 40th minute when Stephen Ouma had the goal at his mercy but could only hit the post.

A trailing Sharks came out in the second half fighting, coming close but Sony goalie was steadfast in his area. Five minutes after the interval, Agwanda’s one-on-one shot was kept out and efforts on the rebound also came to a naught.
