Chemelil 1-4 Ulinzi Stars: Enosh grabs a brace on his old stomping ground

Chemelil woes continued on Wednesday 11 December as Enosh Ochieng grabbed a brace to condemn them to a 1-4 defeat in a Kenyan Premier League clash staged at the Muhoroni Stadium.

Chemelil shambles from the previous games were transferred into the match as they found themselves at the back foot as early as the fifth minute when Enosh Ochieng put the visitors into the lead; the former Muhoroni Youth striker making good use of an Ibrahim Shambi’s flick to remind everyone that he was at home having featured for Muhoroni Youth previously.

Enosh was to double Ulinzi Stars lead in the 20th minute from the spot after Shambi had been brought down in the box; the Kenyan Premier League lasts season's top scorer sending keeper Bernard Olunga the wrong way. The setback coming after the hosts had sent a message of intent from James Omino and Felix Otuoma.

Comfortable Lead

John Kago ensured the visitors had a comfortable 3-0 lead at the break after bagging his side’s third at the half-hour mark.

Head coach Benjamin Nyangweso decided to rest Shambi for Ezekiel Okare in the 56th minute with another double change for the visitor’s minutes later seeing Mark Bikokwa and Boniface Okinyi coming on for John Njuguna and Enosh.

Chemelil had a perfect chance of pulling a goal back in the 76th minute through David Simiyu who had only the goalkeeper to beat but he decided to blaze his efforts wide. Simiyu, however, redeemed himself seven minutes from time as he pulled a goal back for the visitors this after Ulinzi seemed to have regressed.

Ulinzi were not done yet with the goals as Okare ensured that they preserved their three-goal cushion with another goal four minutes from time; the win pushing them to fifth on the log
