Ulinzi gun down Muhoroni, Sony break bank

May 19, 2012
  • Mohoroni player Manase Opao fights for the ball with Geoffrey Kokoyo of Ulinzi during the Kenyan Premier league at Afraha Stadium.

Ulinzi Stars ended their first leg of the league campaign in style by shooting down league debutants Muhoroni Youth 2-0 at Nakuru's Afraha Stadium.

Anthony Nderitu and Allan Muhatoi struck in the 7th and 32nd minute to give the soldiers a well deserved victory.

Nderitu latched on to Kevin Simiyu’s corner in the to release a rasping shot that gave the Muhoroni keeper no chance.

The soldiers were the better side throughout the first half and doubled the lead after Muhati converted a delicate pass from veteran striker Evans Amuoka. This was Ulinzi’s second consecutive win having blanked Rangers 3-0 on Monday night at the Nyayo National Stadium.

Sony Sugar 1 KCB 0

At Gusii Stadium, hosts Sony Sugar left it late to pip KCB 1-0. Mike Simiyu rewarded coach Zedekiah 'Zico' Otieno handsomely after being brought on in the 75th minute to score the all important goal in the 90th minute.

The bankers will however blame themselves for spurning numerous scoring chances. Top strikers Clifford Alwanga and Paul Mungai Kiongera were the main culprits infront of goal.

Alwanga had fired the first warning with two decent chances in the opening ten minutes, but Sony goalkeeper Wilson Oburu was equal to the task. Enock Agwanda also came close for Sony but the teams went into the break evenly matched.
