Tusker see off Leopards in friendly



Tusker FC saw off AFC Leopards 2-1 in a friendly at Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday.

The match was a tough affair for both sides as they traded blows from the onset, but it was Ingwe who snatched the lead in the 26th minute through a thumping Allan Wanga header.

The lead, however, did not last long as their opponents levelled matters moments later through a penalty that was converted by former Sony Sugar striker Ismael Dunga.

The battle turned fierce but the score line did not change into the half-time mark of match, when AFC did some adjustments to its squad. Augustine Etemesi was playing just behind the day’s skipper Allan Wanga was guilty of several wasted chances in the second-half for the Leopards.

It was, however, Tusker who extended their lead 20 minutes after kick off with a fine volley from Michael Olunga – currently on loan at the club from Liberty Sports.

Tusker FC kept up the pressure against their opponents as they appeared well placed for a third goal, but it never came.

Wanga should have equalised in the final minutes of the match from a well calculated Etemesi cross but he headed wide to leave matters at 2-1 at the full time whistle.
