KCB smash four past City Stars



KCB handed Nairobi City Stars a 4-0 beating in their first match of the season, played on Sunday.

Both teams started the match trying to snatch an early goal, but KCB appeared tactically-superior and managed to open the scores in the 19th minute, through a Clifford Alwanga strike.

In the 23rd minute, KCB were awarded a penalty, after City Stars’ Dennis Nganga felled Edwin Mwaura in the box. Benedict Owour, KCB’s captain, took the shot which he easily sent into the right corner of the net.

The referee ordered that there was an infringement and that the shot had to be re-taken. Again, Owuor easily netted it.

On the half hour mark Jacob Keli headed in Michael Oyando’s cross to give his side three-goal advantage.

Four minutes later, Clifford Alwanga sent in a thunderous shot after making a run into the box from the right flank.

The second half was played in the two halves, although City Stars had the better ball-possession. Dennis Nganga came close to scoring in the 70th minute, but his shot flung off the cross-bar and nobody could get the rebound.
