Boniface Muchiri came back to haunt his former employers, scoring a brilliant freekick as Ulinzi Stars edged out Tusker FC 1-0 in an FKF Premier League match played in Ruaraka. Muchiri, who left Tusker for the military two years ago, curled in a brilliant ball from outside the area in the 25th minute, a lead they kept till the final whistle.

Ulinzi collected back to back wins for the first time this season, while Tusker continued with their tough start to the season, with a fourth defeat in nine matches to drop to 11th in the standings.

Against Ulinzi, the brewers started well and had some good early chances, first Deogratious Ojok bouncing a header just wide before James Kibande’s shot was collected by the keeper.

Midfielder Fabien Adikiny came close as well when he struck a brilliant shot from distance, but it flew inches wide. Immediately after, the hosts conceded. A rather needless freekick from distance was embraced by Muchiri, who beat keeper Brian Bwire with a dipping finish.

After conceding, Tusker mounted pressure, but were kept out by the impressive performance of Stephen Ochieng in goal for the soldiers. The keeper pulled off a brilliant save to deny Fabien Adikiny who had glanced a header from a Levin Odhiambo cross.

In the second half, Tusker were off to a fast paced start and had chances, but Ochieng continued pulling saves. The keeper acrobatically blocked two greatly taken efforts, one from substitute Stewart Omondi as well as right back Daniel Sakari.

Tusker made changes late on with Eric Kapaito coming on for Deogratious Ojok. Kapaito was twice denied by the keeper, first his glancing header being tipped over before another effort from a Levin cross was also well saved.

Meanwhile at the Kasarani Stadium, Gor left it late to beat a 10-man Shabana FC 1-0 to move joint top of the standings. Rooney Onyango scored an 88th minute winner for the defending champions as they moved to 19 points, same as leaders Posta Rangers who play Kakamega Homeboyz on Thursday.

Shabana put up a gallant fight, but went down with some late drama, having gone down to 10 men.

Abisalom Aduda was sent off in the 89th minute after a scuffle with Gor Mahia;’s Chris Ochieng, and the Premier League returnees suffered with the numerical disadvantage as Onyango scored with just a minute of normal time left.

The right back made a marauding run on the right, picking up a pass from Rodgers Mugisha before squeezing a low shot that beat the keeper at his near post.
