Recovery for Gor, Leopards as Tusker win

Recovery for Gor, Leopards as Tusker win

Kenya Commercial Bank appeared to be somewhat vulnerable coming into the weekend, facing a tough fixture in Bandari while their closest competitors Tusker looked forward to a much easier competition away in Mombasa against Congo United.

The bankers were equal to the task, emerging from the fixture with all three points thanks to Clifford Alwanga’s hat trick.

In spite of the ending, this wasn’t a match that generated a great deal of talking points and bar an early goal for KCB, for the majority of the time, neither side looked particularly capable of scoring.

Former Mahakama forward Alwanga opened the scoring on the end of a classic bit of KCB play, nodding from close range, thanks to a lapse in the Bandari defence.

That goal opened a flurry of goals from the bankers as the visitors sat back, soaking in the pressure. Former Gor Mahia player Brian Osumba added the second in the 50th minute as Alwanga grabbed more goals in the 61st and 75th minutes.

It truly felt like things would end that way until the burly Abdul Wahab Musa, having a largely anonymous game, produced a stunning moment of brilliance. Shaban Kenga placed in a cross, Musa controlled, before firing past a fully-stretched Caleb Adola.

Away in Mombasa, Tusker FC maintained their 100 per cent run in the premier league, with a 2-1 win over Congo United.

Apart from that KCB versus Bandari tie, AFC Leopards crept out of their den, having lost 2-0 in their opening match against Tusker, to stun Rangers 3-1.

The ease of their victory against the team that stunned their arch rivals Gor Mahia two weeks ago, is likely to give them at least a bit of confidence in the league.

"We were made to pay for our lack of concentration in the second half. We just failed to utilize our chances, while our opponents did just that," said head coach, David Oum.
