NSL Friday: Wazito dispatch Coast Stima as AP fall to Talanta

Round 29 of the FKF National Super League (NSL) kicked-off on Friday 26th with just four teams in action. Promotion chasers Wazito FC entertained Coast Stima from Mombasa while Administration Police had a dicey clash against FC Talanta.

Having forfeited their last clash against Kisumu All Stars despite winning 4-0 because of fielding an illegible player, Wazito left nothing to chance against Stima on Friday, taking home a 4-2 win at the expense of the powermen.

Ghanaian Paul Acquah set the ball rolling in the 6th minute but Lucky Riziki canceled this out in the 23rd minute for 1-1. Keen to avoid another setback, Wazito got back on their feet courtesy of a Joe Waithira brace before half time. They led 3-1 by the break.

Mohammed Kassim, in the 73rd minute, thought he had set up an interesting finish to the clash with Coast Stima’s second goal but Musa Masika restored the hosts’ two-goal cushion.

4-2 it ended and Wazito heading back- temporarily maybe to the top.

Meanwhile, FC Talanta ran away 3-1 winners over Administration Police to hit 50 points from 29 matches.

More matches are lined up for Saturday with eyes firmly affixed on Kisumu All-Stars’ visit to the Gusii stadium to take on Shabana FC. A win for them means they reclaim their leadership role on the log after round 29. Any other result keeps Wazito on top.
