Technical University of Kenya (TUK) registered the highest number of goals as the Super Eight Premier League entered its 13th week last weekend, the Champions League holders thrashing Kabete United 4-0.
It was a boost to TUK who had been expected to struggle against pre-match favourites Kabete especially after a poor start to the season but victory at CID grounds ensured they extended their winning streak to three games.
Kabete’s loss saw them remain ninth on the 16-team table with 18 points while TUK leaped one spot up to seventh place with an improved 19 points. Meanwhile, grassroots fans were disappointed after the much-anticipated top-of- the-table clash between Kawangware United and Kayole Asubuhi ended in a dour 1-1 draw at Kayole’s Calvary grounds.
The result did not, however, impact Kawangware’s position on the table as they continued commanding the log with 32 points, five above second-placed Ngando Youth FC (NYSA), who beat hosts Ajax FC 3-1, while Kayole dropped one place to third with 26 points and will be expected to put together a good run in their remaining two fixtures if they are to retain their title at the end of the season.
Elsewhere at Rongai’s Nakeel grounds, home team Ole Rongai FC, formerly Diguna FC, suffered a 3-1 loss in the hands of visiting Team Umeme as newly-promoted Zamalek FC continued with their winning streak after dispatching a hard-fighting Jericho FC 1-0 in a match that could have gone either way.
At Makongeni grounds, hosts Makongeni Sports Association (MASA) drew 1-1 with Macmillan FC in an entertaining match as Kiambiu Youth went down 3-2 against on-form Melta Kabiria while Metro Sports struggled to edge out Shauri Moyo Blue Stars FC 2-1.
