KCB skin Leopards



Goals by Peter Wainaina and Paul Kiongera handed KCB a 2-0 win over AFC Leopards in a match played on Sunday at Nyayo National Stadium.

Wainaina, a former AFC player, gave KCB an early advantage in the fifth minute, after connecting with an pass flying in from deep. His first attempt at goal was punched back into play by keeper Patrick Matasi. Clifford Alwanga ran for the ball, heading it back to Wainaina who wasted no time converting.

Leopards’ best chance at goal in the first-half came in the 21st minute, with Paul Were getting the ball on the left of the area but his shot was tapped back by keeper Adola.

On 23 minutes, Mike Barasa had another chance but Adola kept his shot out at the near post.

In the 42nd minute, Kiongera spun past Jonas Nahimana to collect a Brian Osumba pass and beat Matasi to make it 2-0 and stun the home crowd.

Leopards started the second half well, camping in the KCB box for the first ten minutes. However, their numerous attempts were neutralised by keeper Adola and his defenders.

KCB almost scored in the 66th minute, after Kiongera and Elvis Ayany – who had come in as a substitute for Geoffrey Maina – broke down the AFC defence but the final shot by Kiongera failed to trouble the goalkeeper.

Barasa went close in added time but Adola again kept him out.

With three points in the bank, KCB have moved from 12th to ninth on the Kenyan Premier League table, while AFC are still perched at the top.
