After a couple of lightweight performances during his early days at Tusker FC, fleet-footed Boniface Muchiri seems to have finally hit the ground running.
The speedster, it seems, has finally pulled his customary width, speed and potency off his hat to the Brewers’ benefit. He was the judge and executioner at the Bukhungu Stadium as Tusker left three points and two goals richer thanks to early magic from the youngster that overwhelmed hosts Kakamega Homeboyz.
The Homeboyz defence had barely gotten time to read the name on Muchiri’s back but they soon were looking at his back as he wheeled away in celebration delight after sticking in the opener from a Faraj Ominde tee-up.
That defence must have been left stammering the youngster’s name five minutes later when he stole in behind to head home the second.
Muchiri (Tusker, too) 2-0 Homeboyz.
That is how the game ended, folks.
Tusker’s second straight win, and fourth in five, puts them sixth with 36 points, three better than Homeboyz in 9th.
Meanwhile at the Chemelil Complex, home side Chemelil celebrated the maximum points awarded to a 9-0 scoreline by beating Vihiga United, uhm, just 1-0.
The solitary strike came just five minutes to a much needed final whistle via Edwin Omondi.
Vihiga remain third from bottom on 23 points, three positions below and four points behind Chemelil.
