Zoo Kericho made a losing debut in the Kenyan topflight as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Posta Rangers despite having a one-man advantage.

The two former National Super League sides faced off at the Afraha Stadium, Sunday afternoon, and it was Posta, promoted a season earlier, that took the three points thanks to a second half goal from Eric Kibiru.

It had been a close contest until Kibiru made the difference, beating Zoo keeper Vincent Misikhu inside the 18-yard area.

There was also victory to celebrate for visiting Chemelil Sugar who silenced the crowd at the Awendo Stadium, beating hosts Sony Sugar 2-0. Sony had not lost to Chemelil at home since March 2013 but were second best here as they made it back-to-back wins following a 1-0 second leg result last season.

The two sides went into the break deadlocked 0-0 but the visitors turned on a gear after the interval. Willis Ouma was the architect of both goals as his cross landed on the head of Edwin Omondi who hit the back of the net to give his side the lead.

The game was put to bed when Victor Ademba fouled Collins Neto in the penalty area and Ouma stepped forward and made it count.

The victory makes Chemelil one of six teams to have made a winning start to their season.

AFC Leopards coach Stewart Hall admits that his team will struggle finding the back of the next for the better part of the first leg, but is happy with the progress made so far with his young charges.

The Briton who took over reigns at the den in October last year says the club does not have an out and out striker who can help bang goals for the team.

Leopards haven’t found the back of the net in five of their last 8 preseason friendlies but have immensely improved in their defending; something which Hall says will help the team in the long run.

‘We are defending very well I must admit, our transition is very good and we will come good as the season goes,’

‘The little problems we have in scoring will just come to an end as time goes,’ he told fourfourtwomedia.

Ingwe played to a barren draw in their last preseason friendly against KCB on Friday morning at the Camp Toyoyo Grounds Jericho.

With the two sides having no league assignments over the weekend and decided to have a run before the league engagements.

Leonard Saleh’s KCB started the match strongly pinning Leopards in their own half forcing Ingwe keeper Gabriel Andika off his line on several occasions to clear danger. The Banker’s pressure paid off in the 15th minute of the game when Andika brought down Edward Oduor, conceding a spot kick which Brian Yator fired straight at Andika.

Leopards also had chances of their own with  Wvyvonne Isuza and Robinson Kamura coming  close to scoring just before halftime . Former Ingwe winger Samuel Abuko was a constant threat to the Ingwe defence and he forced two errors on Marcus Abwao, forcing the later to drag him down and get dismissed just before the break.

Change of squads in the second half somehow slowed the pace witnessed in the first half but it was Ingwe which finished strongly with Haron Nyakha missing a sitter after being put through by Gilbert Fiamenyo.

Kenya’s Ulinzi Stars have an uphill task in making it to the second round of the CAF Confederations Cup after a 4-0 loss to Egyptian Premier League side Smouha SC in the first round first leg match played on Friday at Borg el Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

The hosts scored two goals two quick goals through Islam Mohareb and Ahmed Roauf to give them a 2-0 advantage at the break.

Ulinzi who seemingly did not turn up for the game were caught on the back foot most of the time against their opponents who dictated the game’s pace.

The Soldiers tried getting back into the game early on in the second half but signs of fatigue and inexperienced crept in as the game wore down. Not even the introduction of speedy winger Baron Oketch for Sylus Shitote could help them going forward and would concede the 3rd goal just after the hour mark.

Smouha rounded out their fine performance when Islam Mohareb rifled home the fourth goal to out the tie beyond Ulinzi’s reach.

The first round of the Kenyan Premier League will go on as scheduled despite a court order obtained by Sofapaka FC seeking an injunction against the scheduled kick-off.

Sofapaka who did not meet the CAF Club licensing rules and regulations are challenging against a decision by KPL to demote them to the National Super League (NSL) which is already in its second week. 

But according to the orders obtained from the High Court and granted by Lady Justice Olga Sewe;

‘That the status quo now obtaining as at 3:30pm today (Friday) be maintained pending further orders by Mr. Justice Tuiyott on March 15, 2017.’

‘Granted that the Judge will be off day causelist on March 13, 2017.

Sofapaka had obtained the orders from the High Court pending a hearing to their application next Wednesday where they claim that starting the 2017 KPL without them is against the case they had filed at the Sports Dispute Tribunal (SDT).

KPL Chief Executive Officer, Jack Oguda has acknowledged receiving the court order however says the train is already on transit and all matched scheduled for tomorrow and Sunday will go on as planned. 

The Tribunal will rule on the Sofapaka case on Wednesday 15th March 2017.

Twelve teams begin their quest for Kenyan Premier League glory or survival this weekend as the 2017 campaign finally gets underway, having been held up by boardroom wrangles between the powers that be.

Among the 12 will be reigning champions Tusker FC and record winners Gor Mahia who should both be considered among the favorites even if for the fact that they have shared the last 6 titles between them.

The duo both face opposition from promoted sides with Tusker away to 2016 National Super League champions Nzoia United in a champion versus champion clash this Saturday, while the runners up in the respective leagues, Gor Mahia and Kariobangi Sharks also coincidentally meet the day after.

While much focus will be on those two matches, four other games will be battled out across different venues in the country.

Tusker FC's match away to Nzoia will be one of only two fixtures slated for Saturday with the second clash seeing Nakumatt FC, another promoted side, travel down south to face Bandari at Mbaraki Stadium. The duo met during the 2015 GOtv Shield final with the Dockers running away with a 4-2 victory.

Bandari under new coach, the title winning Paul Nkata, will be hoping the Ugandan tactician will bring some of that luck and consistency that helped deliver the league title to Tusker last campaign. The Dockers were busy during the off-season transfer window, recruiting among others Gor Mahia duo Enock Agwanda and Jacob Keli who might be asked to share goalscoring burden at the club.

Nakumatt were just as busy and made a number of additions to their squad including the signing of AFC Leopards strikes Kepha Aswani and Bruno Kiai.

They go into this match with high hopes they could challenge the experienced Bandari side.

Sunday

On Sunday, focus will shift to Thika Municipal Stadium which will host a double header.

The first up of the two will be Mathare United 'hosting' Thika United at the latter's homeground, thanks to the unavailability of Mathare's regular home Nyayo Stadium.

Thika stunned the Slum Boys 2-0 in the corresponding fixture last season and it will be interesting to see if they can use the fact that they'll be playing at home to their advantage.

Latter on Kariobangi Sharks will be looking to cause an early upset when they battle former KPL champions Kogalo whose confidence must be sky high after beating Tusker FC last weekend in the Super Cup.

Other matches on Sunday see new comers Zoo Kericho hosting Sammy Omollo's Posta Rangers in Afraha. 

The weekend will rightfully be completed with a sugar belt derby as Sony sugar host Chemelil Sugar at Awendo Stadium.

AFC Leopards won't be participating in the league openers as their opponents Ulinzi stars are away in Egypt for a Caf Confederation Cup assignment against Smouha. Western stoma and Kakamega Homeboyz will also be having the weekend off as their opponents are yet to be known as the case on Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth's relegation, or otherwise, is yet to be determined.
