Tusker drown Thika as AFC win

Tusker drown Thika as AFC win

Tusker’s Kenneth Wendo scored twice in a 2-1 win over Thika United on Sunday at Nyayo National Stadium as the brewers opened a three-point lead in the Tusker Premier League with only four rounds of matches left to the end of the season.

At Afraha Stadium in Nakuru, AFC Leopards defeated Muhoroni Youth by a similar margin to occupy the second slot of the log with 48 points, two better than Gor Mahia who play Rangers FC under the floodlights at Nyayo Stadium on Wednesday night.

In Kakamega, Edwin Mwaura’s goal was all Kenya Commercial Bank needed to beat hosts Western Stima 1-0 even as Nairobi City Stars’ woes continued after they lost in a similar fashion to a visiting Sony Sugar side.

Wendo haunts Thika

At Nyayo, Wendo came back to haunt his former club, Thika, when he equalised with a second-half tap after goalkeeper Lucas Indeche failed to contain Patrick Kagogo’s long range effort. He then added his second 10 minutes later with a close range header.

Seeking a respectable finish at the end of the season, Thika United, who were reduced to 10 men with 12 minutes on the clock when defender David Bogere was sent off, were left dejected after 90 minutes, with Cliffton Miheso’s 15th minute goal their only consolation.

"We said before the match that we would take it (the match) seriously as we’ve done previously. I’m happy with the results and we are now focusing on the remaining four rounds of matches," Robert Matano, Tusker head coach, said after the match.

Defensive tactics

It was a dominant comeback by the brewers, inspired by Jockins Atudo’s defensive tactics, Peter Opiyo’s prodigious work in midfield, stellar finishing by Wendo and a work-rate and ambition that glowed throughout the team in the second-half.

Low shots

But it was Thika who dominated the opening 30 minutes. Jackson Macharia and Wycliffe Opondo were sharp on ball, forcing Tusker goalkeeper Bonface Oluoch into action on a number of occasions.

Oluoch was forced to turn away low shots from both Moses Arita and Macharia, before Miheso broke the deadlock with a curling free-kick after 15 minutes.

In Kakamega, Ingwe surged into attack, pinning the dazzling Muhoroni outfit into their own half with fine exchanges.

But Leopards were made to wait up to the 24th minute when Jonas Nahimana soared high to firmly head home his fourth goal of the season following a superb cross from Mike Baraza before Allan Wanga added the second two minutes from half-time.
