AFC Leopards made the perfect response to last weekend's defeat to bogey side Chemelil Sugar by expertly putting aside Muhoroni Youth in their round five Kenyan Premier League clash at the Mbaraki Stadium, Sunday evening.
Dancing Rasta Allan Kateregga netted the solitary goal for Ingwe in the opening half. Yvonne Isuzza was the architect as he threaded the ball towards Gilbert Fiamenyo whose cross found Kateregga's head and the Ugandan did the rest for his second goal of the season.
Leopards were barely threatened by Muhoroni who shared the disadvantage of having to travel so far but it was Ingwe who made the most of the ordessy, collecting their third win of the new campaign.
The three points may come at a cost though as midfielder Andrew Tololwa came off injured late in the game with Harun Nyakha taking his position.
The victory puts Leopards fourth, level on 10 points with second-placed Bandari and Sofapaka in third. Gor Mahia, 2-1 winners over Sony Sugar lead the log on 12 after round 5.
In other matches, Sofapaka thumped winless and pointless Zoo Kericho 3-0 with Ezekiel Okare opening the scoring and Paul Odhiambo finishing off matters with a well taken double at the Kericho Green Stadium.
In Mumias, new boys Nzoia United edged Kakamega Homeboyz 2-1. After Lawrence Juma cancelled Charles Momanyi's opener for Homeboyz, former Leopards fullback Edwin Wafula scored a second half winner for Nzoia, his second of the season after slotting home a penalty in the shocking 5-2 defeat of Tusker on matchday 1.
