First half goals from David Odhiambo and Allan Wanga were enough for Kakamega Homeboyz to complete the double over Nzoia Sugar with a 2-0 win in an ill-tempered SportPesa Premier League (SPL) match at Sudi stadium, Bungoma on Thursday.
Homeboyz beat Nzoia 1-0 in Kakamega in December in the first leg.
Odhiambo opened the scoring on 13 minutes before Wanga struck his 17th goal of the season in the 34th minute to return to the top of the scorer’s chart. Wanga’s closest challenger, Sofapaka’s Umar Kasumba, is a goal behind.
“I do not have a specific target but my aim is to score in each game to increase my tally and more so help the team achieve its objective this season,” an elated Wanga said in his post-match remarks.
Nzoia Sugar coach Godfrey “Solo” Oduor rued the missed chances in the match. The loss, Nzoia’s second in as many matches, left the Sugar Millers in 12th place on 32 points.
“I am impressed that we managed create chances only that we were not clinical enough and these are some of the things we intend to work on ahead of the next match,” noted Oduor, whose side travel to Machakos to face Tusker on Sunday.
Tusker hammered Mount Kenya United 4-1 at Kenyatta Stadium on Thursday with former league MVP Michael Madoya bagging a brace in the match. Tusker’s other scorers were Timothy Otieno and David Majak.
