Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday narrowly defeated Wazito 1-0 in an evenly contested FKF Premier League match played at Utalii grounds in Nairobi. 

George Odiwuor first half penalty kick was enough to hand Homeboyz all the maximum points. 

The victory saw the Kakamega based club maintain their 100 percent record start to the league where they are now joint tie in the first position with six points same as Bandari and Ulinzi Stars.

Homeboyz defeated newbies Kenya Police with a similar score line in the season opener played at Bukhungu Stadium last month.

On the other hand, Wazito remain without a win having drawn 1-1 with Talanta in their opening match.

Homeboyz were awarded a penalty in the 45th minute moments before the break after Wazito goalkeeper Omar Adisa brought down David Okoth in the box in a one-on one encounter to deny the striker from scoring.

Odiwuor stepped up and sent Adisa the wrong way for a 1-0 lead at the breather, a goal that would prove costly to Wazito who are still winless in the new season.

After two rounds, Bandari lead the standings with six points same as Uinzi and Homeboyz followed by Sofapaka and AFC Leopards with four points each.

Defending champions Tusker and Gor Mahia did not play over the weekend after their matches were postponed due to Caf assignments.
