Silibwet shock leaders Kenya Police as top teams lose in National Super League
FOOTBALL By Washington Onyango | February 22nd 2021
Silibwet pulled the upset of the weekend after edging out National Super League (NSL) leaders Kenya Police 1-0 in the round 11 matches played over the weekend in Bomet.
Denis Cheruiyot scored in the first half to hand Dilibwet their fourth win of the campaign.
The win saw them move to the mid-table from 15 to ninth with 15 points as leaders Police failed to pull away after all the top four teams failed to register wins.
After the loss, Police remain top with 22 points, three ahead of FC Talanta who lost by a solitary goal to Coast Stima in Mombasa.
Nairobi Stima moved into third place after edging out former Premier League outfit Kisumu All-Stars 2-1 at Camp Toyoyo.
Newbies Kisumu Hot Stars dropped to seventh in the log after losing 1-0 to relegation-threatened Muranga Seals as Fortune Sacco remained fourth despite a 2-2 draw against MCF.
In Gusii, Sony Sugar picked up all the three points against Modern Coast Rangers after beating them 2-1 at the Gusii Stadium.
In Kakamega, Soy United scored two quick-fire goals in the second half to defeat former giants Shabana 2-1 on Sunday at Bukhungu Stadium.
On the same grounds, Vihiga Bullets handed visitors Migori Youth a 2-1 defeat as Mwatate moved to eight in the log after edging out Mt Kenya United 3-2 in a five-goal thriller.
Kisumu Hot Stars will kick start the week 11 fixtures with a home tie against Coast Stima at Moi Stadium on Thursday as they look to bounce back after their weekend loss.
