Homeboyz enjoy dream start



Kakamega Homeboyz had a dream start to their Kenyan Premier League (KPL) run, blanking experienced Karuturi Sports 3-1 on Sunday at Bukhungu Stadium.

Karuturi Sport were the stronger of the two in the opening exchanges and went closest on the 20th minute mark after a fine string of passes but Allan Otindo’s well taken shot could only hit the post after beating John Waw in the Homeboyz goal.

Homeboyz, however, settled down well and managed to force the visitors into a few errors and on 38 minutes Dennis Mukaisi, their leading scorer last season, put them ahead after picking up a pass from Daniel Waweru in the midfield and beating the Karuturi defenders with pace. He then unleashed a powerful shot that beat Michael Wanyika for the opener.

The second goal did not take long; an under pressure Karuturi Sport conceded a foul in the midfield and Samuel Misse picked out newly signed Paul Odhiambo who thumped well past Wanyika on 40 minutes to see the home side go into the break with a two goal lead.

Karuturi Sports came back re-energized after the break and a moment of pressure caught Homeboyz on the wrong foot as Andrew Murunga leapt well to connect with Joseph Kariuki’s cross and beat John Waw with a header from close range.

The visitors’ revival, however, did not last; Mukaisi restored the two-goal cushion on 82 minutes when his well timed run and powerful header beat Wanyika for the third time.

The win places Homeboyz on top jointly with KCB who had earlier thrashed City Stars 4-0.
