Tusker thrash St Michel
Kenyan Premier League (KPL) title holders Tusker came from a goal down to beat St. Michel 4-1 in a Caf Champions League preliminary match that was staged at Stade Linite in Victoria on Saturday.
A brace from David Ochieng and a goal each from substitutes Michael Olunga and Andrew Segkayombya was enough to give the brewers a huge away win.

Olunga made it 2-1 on 67 minutes before Ugandan import Sekayombya scored his debut goal 12 minutes from time.

The return leg will be played in Nairobi in two weeks’ time with the winner of the tie set to face Caf Champions League winners Al Ahly in the next round.
