Ulinzi go down to KCB



Ulinzi Stars finished the season with a 2-1 home loss to KCB in a Tusker Premier League match played at the Afraha Stadium on Saturday.

KCB’s strategy of sitting back to soak up the pressure in the early stages nearly backfired on them on the quarter-hour mark when Chester Okoyo floated in an inviting cross begging to be headed in but there was no one at the far post to connect with it.

They were made to pay dearly when the visitors went on the attack five minutes later, Paul Mungai combining well with Edwin Mwaura to release the former Rangers man who picked out the left side of the advancing Jacktone Odhiambo to open the scores.

Two minutes later, the shaky Sammy Okinda almost conceded an own goal when he parried a Okoyo corner towards his own net but he recovered well to clear the danger.

He was then called to action after 31 minutes by a well-taken Okoyo shot but he managed to save on the second attempt.

Mungai once again pulled the strings upfront to set Brian Osumba clear. Osumba shot well from range but the alert Odhiambo tipped the shot over for a corner as KCB finished the half stronger.

On 54 minutes, Jacob Keli was felled in the box by Josiah Okello but his appeals for a penalty were waved away by referee Raphael Nduati.

The bankers were, however, not to be denied on the hour mark when Mungai lobbed the keeper after a swift counter attack.

Evans Amuoka pulled one back from an Okoyo corner on 68 minutes. The result takes KCB to 39 points, while Ulinzi Stars fall to sixth spot with 45 points.
