Kibra United have been crowned the champions of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Nairobi West Regional League after finishing the league on a massive 90 points from 34 matches.
The new champions have also set the bar high with a new record, having won the competitive league unbeaten. They won 28 matches, drew in six matches to lift the title.
After commanding the 18-team log for over five weeks Kibra finally clinched the league after settling for a barren draw with their perennial rivals Kysa Karengati during a pulsating final that was full of energy but low on goals at the Cooperative College ground at the weekend.
After the loss, Kysa finished the league in 14th position with 34 points, one above Red Carpet who settled for 15th spot on 33 points. Despite putting up a spirited fight to bridge the massive 17 points gap between them and the eventual champions, Shofco FC finally settled for a distant second position on 73 points.
The former have won 21 of their 34 matches but shared spoils in 10 matches and lost three fixtures. After dominating the first leg by commanding the table for over five weeks, Nairobi Prisons succumbed to late pressure to eventually finish third on 67 points, a point above fourth placed Gogo Boys.
Kitusuru All Stars are in fifth on the log with 66 points. Meanwhile, Lang’ata Gremio, Kuwinda FC and Uptown FC are the bottom three teams that will be relegated to the County League next year.
Lang’ata managed to garner 26 points while Kuwinda and Uptown collected 22 points and 21 points respectively after 34 matches. In the FKF County League, the junior team of SportPesa Premier League (KPL) side AFC Leopards, AFC Leopards Youth, were crowned the champions after trouncing Nairobi Sports House FC 4-2 in a one-sided final staged at Ziwani grounds. Leopards had won 14 of their 20 matches, losing only two matches and drawing in four to lead the 21 team log for several weeks.
