Chemelil Sugar tame Leopards



AFC Leopards ended the season in third position after they were beaten 1-0 by Chemelil Sugar at the Awendo Green Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Chemelil started the match at a fast pace as they caught Ingwe napping in the 18th minute through a Jonathan Mwaniki goal.

Leopards however, have themselves to blame after missing a host of chances with defender Erick Masika and Mike Baraza both heading wide.

The second half was no better for Ingwe as their performance dropped from bad to worse despite bringing Kenya international Allan Wanga into the match.

Chemelil continued to dominate, even threatening to score a second after Andrew Isemeki was left alone with the keeper only to loop the ball wide. This appeared to have been a wake-up call for Leopards who again threatened to leave the score with a Martin Imbalambala shot from the middle of the park.

The second half was a nail-biting encounter towards the end as Ingwe fought hard to get the points but the millers ensured that they sealed their defence.

Chemelil frustrated AFC as they forced their skipper Imbalambala into conceding a yellow card for bringing down Jared Omwenga.

Four minutes of added time could not save the situation for Leopards as Chemelil managed to cement a place in the top eight.
