KENYA: Stars shock leopards

AFC Leopards slumped to an unexpected 3-0 loss to City Stars at Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday.

Despite enjoying much of the possession in the opening half, the Leopards went to rest.

Not even Dan Sserunkumaís opening goal after 61 minutes would jolt the former champions back to their hunting ways.

A defensive blunder four minutes later saw Boniface Ojwang put through by the Ugandan import, Sserunkuma for a deft finish.

The Martin Imbalabala and Jonas Nahimanaís defence line was again exploited by Sserunkuma, who controlled a long clearance from his side, before tapping in past a hesitant Patrick Matasi in the Leopardsí goal for his second and Starsí third.

"My boys lacked the fighting spirit. This is a game we ought not to have lost, but in a match, there is a winner and a loser," Leopards head coach, Jan Koops said.

Leopardsí defence had held on well in the first half, until Eric Masika limped off injured.

The loss reduced Leopardsí lead to two points at 27, following Tusker 4-2 win over Rangers in the earlier match.


Ranger 2 Tusker 4

Champions Tusker showed that little bit more element of mental toughness to ease past Rangers 4-2 at Nyayo Stadium.

Rangerís Charles Pilipili made the first strike before two-goal hero Jerry Santos converted a cross moments later to return parity.

On a deteriorating Nyayo surface that is suffering from overuse made worse by the current heavy rains, neat passing football was not going to be part of the menu.

Tusker looked to adopt better and were gifted their second goal courtesy of an Edward Kauka own goal before the Joakins Atudo added the third for the brewers with a successful penalty kick.

Determined Rangers threatened to upset the apple cart with a late surge. Tusker old boy Japhery Oyando netting their second moments after coming on as a substitute as his side pressed hard to rescue the game.

But what looked a great turn around never materialized as the cool Santos slotted home a penalty for his second and Tuskerís fourth goal late, late in the game.

"It was hard work and I must commend my boys. They did not lose their heads when the score went to 3-2. We want to stay in touch with the league leaders," a satisfied Tusker coach Sammy Omollo said.

Muhoroni Youth 1 KCB 2

Muhoroni Youth lost 2-1 to KCB in a tough and thrilling match played under a heavy down poured at the Muhoroni stadium.
