It was a sad ending for former champions Tusker who were routed 4-0 by Ulinzi Stars at Afraha Stadium, Nakuru,  on Saturday, to end their wobbly campaign in embarrassing fashion.

Stephen Waruru bagged a brace; scoring the first goal in the 15th minute when  Daniel Waweru set him up  to stab home past goalkeeper David Okello.

Still dictating the terms, the firing soldiers stepped up pressure for more goals and five minutes later, Elvis Nandwa shook the net with a powerful left foot drive following a spade work by Waruru to register his only goal of the season.

Tusker’s Sydney Ochieng came close to narrowing the gap in the 33rd minute but his blockbuster inside the box missed the target by inches.

Waruru fired his brace in the 34th minute when John Kago booted a high ball near the corner flag which found Waruru well positioned to make a clinical finish.

On resumption, coach Francis  Baraza introduced Sempala Hashim, Jackson Macharia and Abdul Hassan for Humphrey Mieno, Brian Osumba and Boniface Muchiri- a change that fell flat.

On the opposite side, coach Benjamin Nyangweso brought in Ibrahim Shambi, Enosh Ochieng’ and Oliver Ruto for Elvis Nandwa, Cliff Kasuti and Hassan ‘Rio Mohammed, a move that saw the soldiers clinch their fourth goal.
