Three players scored on their club debut as the second leg of the 2012 Kenyan Premier League kicked off at the weekend.
Ex-Nairobi City Stars’ Ugandan forward Dan Sserunkuma, who had promised the ‘Green Army’ goals on the club’s official website, netted once as Gor Mahia beat Western Stima 2-1 in Mumias.
Joshua Oyoo, formerly at Sony Sugar, netted one of the three goals as champions Tusker hammered Oserian 3-1 at Nairobi City Stadium to go top of the table standings.
After a one-month break, the second leg started on high note, especially for clubs that were hitherto threatened with relegation.
Mathare United beat Karuturi 3-1 in Naivasha, a result that did little to alter the victor’s position in the table though it eased relegation worries for coach Stanley Okumbi.
At 15 points the Slum Boys are in the 13th spot and equal on points with Muhoroni Youth, who were on the losing end to Ulinzi Stars.
Geoffrey Kokoyo and Wycliffe Ochomo were on target for the soldiers, whose 2-1 win over the newcomers took them to fourth place with 27 points, just one behind AFC Leopards who play Sofapaka tomorrow at Nyayo National Stadium.
Coach Gideon Ochieng’s City Stars continued their resurgence with a shock 1-0 victory over hosts Thika United to move to 10th with 20 points.
Western Stima 1 Gor Mahia 2, Thika United 0 City Stars 1, Karuturi Sports 1 Mathare United 3, Tusker 3 Oserian 1, Muhoroni Youth 1 Ulinzi Stars 2, KCB 0 Sony Sugar 1
