Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday thrashed Ulinzi Stars 3-1 in an entertaining round 23 Football Kenya Federation Premier League match played at Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK) Showground in Nakuru.
The win saw Homeboyz end their three-match winless run.
Shami Kibwana scored a brace and assisted in Allan Wanga’s goal as John Njuguna pulled one back for Ulinzi who have now conceded seven goals in two matches.
The win moved Homeboyz to ninth in the log with 28 points.
The Homeboyz win was the only match with a win in the four local matches played with the other three all finishing in draws.
In Wundanyi, Lawrence Juma scored his 12th goal of the season as 10-man Sofapaka played to a 1-1 draw against Vihiga United in the Wundanyi Stadium on Sunday.
Seeking to move to the bottom half table, Batoto ba Mungu started on the wrong foot after finding themselves trailing 1-0 at the break after Dennis Monda gave Vihiga the lead at the stroke of halftime.
Former Gor Mahia midfielder Juma would come to life in the 51st minute to restore parity for the 2009 champions.
The draw left Sofapaka 11th in the standings with 28 points as Vihiga remained 15th with 16 points.
