Muhoroni electrocute Stima



Muhoroni Youth FC, considered underdogs going into their opening Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash against Western Stima at Muhoroni Stadium, trashed the form book to beat the fancied Kakamega side 2-0 on Sunday.

Muhoroni, virtually a new look side after mass departures in the January transfer window, took a 1-0 lead into the break courtesy of newly signed midfielder Kevin Omondi.

The midfielder won a free kick for his side in the 48th minute and went on to flick home the resulting delivery by Yusuf Mohamed.

Muhoroni Youth’s forward Geoffrey Simiyu, who was making a return to the team after spending six months at Sony Sugar, scored the second goal of the game on 75 minutes.

Simiyu was at the right place to tap in Collins Neto’s low cross from the right wing after he had dribbled forward before beating the visitors’ defence.

The goal was Simiyu’s first goal in six months, his last had been in Muhoroni Youth colours before he joined Sony Sugar.

The win, Muhoroni Youth’s first ever over Western Stima, lifts the Nyanza side to third place – behind KCB and Kakamega Homeboyz in the league standings, with three points after the first day of matches.
