The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) entered the 22nd round of matches on Saturday 13 August with three games on the cards across the nation as teams fight on for high finishes as the championship enters its homestretch.
Sofapaka’s ambition to escape the relegation region continues positively after scoring two late goals to beat other relegation threatened candidates, Ushuru FC 2 – 0 at the Nyayo National Stadium.
Two goals in three minutes did the magic for Sofapaka with the tie seemingly headed for a draw and a share of the spoils for both teams. Charles Pilipili scored the opener on the 86th minute before Ugandan Brian Magonya netted the second on the 89th to seal it.
At the Machakos Stadium, Tusker’s pains continued with a 1 – 1 draw with Western Stima, leaving some room for Gor Mahia to close in when they take on Posta Rangers later on Sunday 14 August.
Allan Wanga capitalized on Joash Onyango’s mistake to score a tenth minute goal before Onyango redeemed himself early in the second half with the equalizer to settle the tie.
Out of the Nairobi metropolitan, Muhoroni Youth was playing host to Thika United at the Muhoroni Stadium and needed a solo strike from Congolese import Bebeto Lwamba to bag the three points from the clash.
Three more matches are slated for Sunday while Ulinzi Stars who are in Rwanda for the Africa Military Games have not been listed for action with Sony Sugar also missing in action.
