Tusker find Muhoroni too sweet, Nakumatt shop in Kakamega
Wounded Tusker bounced back to winning ways after a sluggish form in recent matches thumping a hapless Muhoroni Youth 4-0 in a lopsided Kenyan Premier League duel at the Ruaraka grounds on Sunday.
The hot and cold blowing Michael Khamati, leading the line in the afternoon, led the rout bagging an incredible brace to put the brewers on course for the huge win.
Khamati capitalized on the chaos in Muhoroni’ s defence slotting the opener in the 10th minute, even as Muhoroni goalie Salim Sowedi advanced to close the shooting angle.
Khamati was to add his second six minutes after the interval, his goal sandwiching Humphrey Mieno’s penalty just before the breather.
Mieno, who has of late been vocal in expressing his mind in the political turmoil in the country with a call to police to end its brutality against opposition protestors– particularly in the Nyanza region –was also expressive on the pitch as off it firing in the second from the spot.
As Tusker continued to surge forward making their dominance felt, Allan Wanga added the last nail in Muhoroni’s coffin with a header from a corner.
At the Kisumu County Stadium, hosts Western Stima and Thika United shared the spoils in a one-all-draw.
Eugene Mukangula fired the visitors to the lead in the 41st minute only for Robert Achema to ensure shared spoils.
At the Mumias Complex, goal poacher Kepha Aswani’s brace saw Nakumatt shop for maximum points beating Kakamega Homeboyz 2-1.Veteran Wycliffe Opondo was on the mark for the hosts.
Elsewhere, in a sugar millers derby at the Awendo Green Stadium, Sony Sugar and Nzoia Sugar battled to a 2-2 draw.
Vincent Ngesa and Benjamin Mosha were on target for the hosts while George Abege and Brian Yakhama replied for the visitors.
