Muhoroni, Sony triumph as Sofapaka hold Homeboyz
FOOTBALL By Phillip Orwa | July 18th 2016
Muhoroni Youth came from a goal down to beat Posta Rangers 2-1 in a Kenyan Premier League game at Muhoroni Complex.
Posta Rangers took the lead on the half hour mark through Joseph Nyagah following a nice set up by Dennis Mukaisi.
Two goals in three minutes, however, saw Muhoroni turn the tables on the Nairobi side.
Wycliffe Nyangechi pulled Muhoroni level in the 40th minute before former Palos hitman Calvin's Omanga completed the hosts' comeback in the 42nd minute.
The home team started strongly but Rangers waded through the storm, pegging back their hosts. Former Sony and Tusker defender Jockins Atudo saw his cross whizz past the goalpost and shortly thereafter, good interplay between Nyagah and Mukaisi alomost carved open Muhoroni's backline.
Muhoroni's Yussuf Mohamed and Wycliffe Ochomo tried their luck from far but could not trouble the mail men.
Collins Agade then sent his free kick direct into Posta Rangers goalkeeper Patrick Matasi after Atudo fouled Lwamba Bebeto just outside the box.
Muhoroni saw out the match comfortably, with Samuel Ndungu and Nyangechi's efforts doing little to trouble Matasi in Rangers' goal.
At Awendo Green Stadium, hosts Sony needed just a solitary goal in the 50th by Daniel Onyango to silence visiting Bandari FC 1-0.
The win gave Salim Babu charges some respite after their last tie ended in a frustrating 2-2 draw.
At Mumias Complex, hosts Kakamega Homeboyz came from a goal down to force a one-all draw with struggling "Batoto Ba Mungu" Sopafaka.
Former Gor Mahia striker Moses Odhiambo scored in the 10th minute to put Sopafaka in the lead, but just as he did during the Gor Mahia game, Ali Bhai levelled for a share of the spoils.
