NSL: AP Held, Talanta Win

15th placed Administration Police played out a barren draw with Kenya Police in the first of a National Super League doubleheader played on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, at Camp Toyoyo.

AP enjoyed possession for the better part of the match but failed to find a way past their fellow Policemen. The draw consequently leaves them at 15th place with 26 points from 30 matches. Kenya Police, meanwhile, is ninth with 39 points from 28 matches. Salim Mzee twice wasted glorious chances that could have seen the AP’s snatch a vital win at Toyoyo. In the 34th minute of the game, he was set clear by Abdulkarim Abbas but he failed to find target with Kenya Police Keeper Anthony Abong’o well beaten. In the second half, his long range effort ricochet the upright after another save by Abong’o who was no doubt the man-of-the-match.

In the second match played at the same venue, FC Talanta survived a late scare to edge out Kibera Black Stars 3-2.

A goal by Michael Muya in between a brace by Rodgers Omondi saw FC Talanta take the driving seat, on course for a third win in four matches. A late surge by Black Stars, however, saw substitute Philbert Ochieng score two late goals that were, however, not enough to change the outcome of the match.

Ushuru moved to third on the log following a similar 3-2 win away to Kisumu All-Stars. Nairobi Stima on the other hand narrowed the gap between them and league leaders Western Stima to three points following a 2-1 win over St Joseph Youth in Naivasha.
