Reverse fixture

In the last fixture, Rody Manga’s lone goal was enough as we secured a double over the Bullets.

Ambrose Sifuna strikes late to earn Sofapaka a point on the road.

Ambrose scored a late second-half goal to earn Batoto Ba Mungu a point on the road.

In a match staged at Bukhungu Stadium, we had the first call on goal five minutes into play through Roy Okal. The midfielder collected Kevin Okoth’s pass but directed it to Baby’s arm.

At the quarter hour, the hosts had their first chance on goal. Ali Bai and Elie Asieche combined upfront before the latter dummied Michael Karamor. The former Sofapaka striker tapped in on goal, but Kevin Omondi reacted by stretching wide to make an important block using his right foot.

Five minutes later, field captain Titus Achesa floated in a teasing ball into Homeboyz’s defense, finding David Nshimirimana, who brushed the ball to Ronack Otieno, but keeper Babu in goal for Homeboyz rushed in to collect the ball.

At the half-hour mark, we attacked yet again. Baron Oketch picked out Geoffrey Ojunga’s pass and dribbled past Robinson Kamura, but Homeboyz keeper Babu made a quick response to make an important block to deny the host from taking the lead.

Five minutes before break, a quick search by Brian Wepo found Maqbul Ocholla. The youngster dummied to Titus Achesa, but the captain blasted his effort wide with the keeper to beat.

Ten minutes after the restart, Brian Wepo delivered an inswinger that found Rody Manga, but the striker’s header slightly missed the target from close range.

Five minutes after the hour mark in the second half, substitute Lucky Musyoki picked up a loosely cleared ball by Ali Bai before going past Odhiambo and setting Ambrose Sifuna on goal. Sifuna beat Kamura from close range but placed too much power on his final attempt, which went wide.

With a quarter of time to play, the host took the lead through Ali Bai. The veteran midfielder went past Samuel Olwande before slotting past the advancing Kevin Omondi.

Against the run of play, substitute Alex Imbusia made a quick run into the Homeboyz defense before laying a cutback pass to Ambrose Sifuna, who made no mistake slotting past Babu for an important goal and point on the road.

Sofapaka part ways with Waithira and Kasirye

Sofapaka Football Club can confirm we have parted ways with forwards Joseph Waithera and David Kasiyrie.

The two who joined the club from Wazito Football Club and KCCA of Uganda, respectively, have left the club on mutual consent and will no longer be part of the club for the remainder of the season.

We want to wish Waithera and Kasiyre the very best in their next endeavors.

Tusker beat Sofapaka in Annex

A first-half strike by Tanzanian Ibrahim Joshua was enough as Tusker saw off Sofapaka 1-0.

In a match staged at Kasarani Annex, the visitors had the first sniff on goal on the quarter-hour through David Majak, who received Boniface Onyango’s cross, but David Nshimirimana timely reacted to intercept the Sudanese attempt on goal.

On the 20th minute, Baron Oketch dribbled past Boniface Onyango and Momanyi Charlse before laying Rody Manga on goal, but the forward arrived late and missed from the near post for an easier pick for Brian Bwire.

Three minutes before the break, the visitors took the lead through Ibrahim Joshua. The Tanzanian forward collected Humphrey Mieno’s pass and shot on the far right side of the post to give Tusker the lead.

Five minutes before the break, Brian Wepo perfectly executed a teasing volley from 25 yards that beat Bwire only to be denied by the crossbar.

At the stroke of halftime, Majak once again came close to doubling Tusker’s lead, but the striker was denied by Ronack Otieno, who quickly threw his body on the line for a timely block.

Five minutes after the restart, Alex Imbusia lifted in a long cross to Manga, with whom we came close to leveling scores, but Charles Momanyi came to Tusker’s rescue.

At the hour mark, substitute Geoffrey Ojunga laid a decent ball to Baron Oketch. The forward’s shot went through Boniface Onyango, but his shot went straight into Bwire’s arm.

Twenty minutes from time, Ben Stanely and Ojunga combined through the Tusker Box area, but the latter’s shot was calmly collected by Brian Bwire.

Against the run of play, Titus Achese singled out Ben Stanley. The youngster flicked on goal, but it went over the bar as Tusker held firmly for victory.

Ouma anticipates a tough duel on Sunday.

Batoto Ba Mungu will welcome the Brewers in round 11 of the FKF Premier League 22/23 season.

We are coming off a tough match against Gor Mahia on Wednesday. It was a solid test, and I am glad with how the lads responded and did well in the match. Ouma said

I expect an equally tough encounter on Sundays against the Breweries because they are a direct-oriented team and very clinical in front of goal. They have been on a good run over the last two encounters, which will make Sunday’s match a tight battle because they will be coming all out to get back to winning ways and we too will be working towards bouncing back to winning ways too, so I expect a close tie. He added

I am pleased at the way we’ve built up the cohesion in the team, and I want the lads to keep on working on our finishing in order to collect maximum points because we have been consistently creating scoring opportunities. Concluded Ouma

Sofapaka will take place on Sunday at Kasarani Annex.
