Ulinzi Stars on Saturday ended Kariobangi Shark’s five match unbeaten run after defeating them 2-0 in a tight Football Kenya Federation Premier League match played in Narok.

Keeper James Saruni put up a man of the match performance as Ulinzi ended their four match winless run, a result that saw them move above the mid-table to eighth for the moment.

Masita Masuta and Clinton "Aguero" Omondi each netted in the opening half to inspire the soldiers to their fourth win of the campaign.

The victory gets Ulinzi to 21 points from 17 matches played, 14 points behind leaders Tusker.

The match started on a high note with both teams attempting for early goals but by the time the referee stopped the match in the 22nd minute for the first water break, no goal had been scored.

However, that would change at the half hour mark after Masuta netted past a helpless Brian Bwire in goal for Sharks.

Ten minutes later, Ulinzi would take a healthy two goal cushion to the breather after Omondi scored in the 39th minute to give Ulinzi a 2-0 lead.

In the final half, Sharks attempted to come back into the match but their numerous attempts were kept at bay by the excellent Saruni in goal for Ulinzi.

Shark’s disappointing day was summed up in the 89th minute when substitute Robert Onyango’s goal was ruled out with Ulinzi holding on to win 2-0.

Ulinzi will now prepare to face Western Stima next in Kisumu.
