Leopards deflower Karuturi



AFC Leopards went four points clear at the top of the Kenyan Premier League after a late strike from Victor Ochieng’ secured a 1-0 win over Karuturi Sports on Saturday at Mumias Sports Complex.

The dull clash appeared to be heading towards a goalless draw before second half substitute Ochieng – who had replaced Jimmy Bageya in the 71st minute – scored the decisive goal in the match in the 88th minute.

Bageya could have put Ingwe in the driving seat early in the first-half but missed a glorious opportunity before the flowermen took the ball into Leopards’ half and forced goalkeeper Barnabas Tiema to a huge save.

A few minutes after the break, Allan Wanga rose high to connect with Idrissa Rajab’s free-kick, forcing Karuturi’s shot-stopper Michael Wanyika to make a superb save.

In the 74th minute Leopards’ fans breathed a sigh of relief after lanky midfielder Kennedy Oduor danced through the defence only for Tiema to parry his shot out for a corner.

The result saw Ingwe register their fourth straight win, leaving them four points ahead of second placed Tusker.
