SoNy pip Bandari as Zoo hold Nzoia Sugar

Bandari FC was this afternoon treated to a 2-0 humbling out in Awendo by hosts SoNy Sugar FC.

The Dockers, who traveled to Awendo on the back of a loss, went down through two second-half strikes from Solomon Omolo and Derrick Otanga.

The Awendo contest was one of close shaves in the first half with none of the teams getting on the scoresheet. In the second half, however, skipper Enock Agwanda would start running the show and set up Omolo in the 50th minute with a low cross.

Decent control of the ball had him with a one on one with Wanyika Mike in goal for Bandari and the SoNy forward made no mistake. Agwanda then showed up in the 76th minute with yet another cross, this time, intended for Otanga who made it 2-0.

Otanga now has 6 goals and leads SoNy’s goal scoring charts.

The win springs SoNy to 6th on the log with 28 points from 18 matches while Bandari maintains 3rd.

Sudi

Elsewhere, Nzoia Sugar Football Club was held to a one-all draw by visiting Zoo FC at the Sudi stadium for a share of spoils in another catch-up Kenyan Premier League fixture.

Otieno’s opener was one born from solo play as he stormed from the flank to drive home a powerful shot through a flat-footed Zoo defense. This was in the 31st minute and the home side looked the likelier to add another.

With just two minutes of the first half to play, however, Bernard Odhiambo was brought down in the box and a penalty awarded at the expense of defender Gabriel Wandera. Chetambe, scorer of Zoo’s last goal when they played Vihiga United one week ago, stepped up to restore parity.

Nzoia raided in the second half for a winner but only came closest with hitting the woodwork three times. Stephen Etyang, Collins Wakhungu, and Otieno Patrick could have earned the sugar millers three points had they angled their shots just inches inside the target.

The draw keeps Nzoia at 11th on the log with 21 points from 18 matches while Zoo sits just above AFC Leopards in the relegation zone with 16 points from 18 matches.
