Sony Sugar registered another giant killing move after bringing down AFC Leopards 1-0 in yesterday’s Kenyan Premier League match at Kericho Green Stadium.

The sugar millers had just three days earlier hit champions Tusker 2-0 at home and yesterday’s results proved it was not a fluke.

For Leopards, it brought to an end their four-match unbeaten run which includes Sunday’s 3-1 win over Zoo Kericho at the same venue.

Sony, who had beaten Leopards by a similar margin in the first leg, scored the lone goal through Mwana Yiema in the 45th minute.

The victory propelled Sony Sugar to 12th spot with 29 points while AFC Leopards are 14th with 27 points.

At Kasarani, Kariobangi Sharks completed a double over Mathare United after beating the former KPL champions 3-0 in a thrilling match. Kenyan international Masoud Juma, Duke Abuya, and Ovellah Ochieng scored a goal each to take Sharks’ tally to 37.

Missed chances

Masoud could have put Sharks ahead in the third minute but he was denied by the post.

A few moments later, Mathare winger John Mwangi saw his shot in the box blocked for a fruitless corner before Chrispin Ochieng’ forced a fine save from Sharks goalkeeper Robert Mboya.

Sharks broke the deadlock in the 15th minute when Masoud dispossessed his marker, released an incisive pass to Abuya, who made no mistake to beat goalkeeper Levis Opiyo.

Roy Okal could have drawn level for Mathare in the 23rd minute but his well curved free kick hit the post before Masoud’s diving header from Paul Kamau’s delivery flew inches wide.

Opiyo then pulled off a fine save from Mathew Odongo’s attempt on the stroke of halftime as Sharks took a slim lead into the break.

Edward Seda had a chance to equalise but his shot at the edge of the box was blocked before George Owino failed to capitalise on Mboya’s goalkeeping error to draw level.

Masoud had two scoring opportunities on the hour mark but Opiyo kept the former Sony Sugar man at bay.

Mboya then returned to haunt his former club in the 69th minute as he parried away Chrispin Oduor’s penalty kick after Sharks defender had handled the ball in the box.

Mathare were punished in the 81st as substitute Ovellah Ochieng’ unleashed a powerful shot that flew past a hapless Mboya in goal before Masoud made amends with a clinical finish in injury time.
