Kakamega Homeboyz brought Wazito back down to earth after thumping them 2-4 with Peter Thiong'o and Johnstone Omurwa bagging a brace each in a Kenyan Premier League match staged at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
Buoyed by their pulsating 2-2 draw against Mathare United last time out, Wazito started the game on the front foot as Musa Masika set up Derrick Onyango with a cut-back cross but the former Mathare United forward blazed his effort over the crossbar.
Wazito failed to capitalize on their early dominance and were made to pay as Homeboyz settled into the game and broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when Ali Bahi delivered a sumptuous freekick from the right flank that was nodded in by Kennedy Onyango who rose highest over the Wazito defense.
The goal rocked Wazito as they let in another goal three minutes later when Ali Bahi again set Peter Thiong'o free with a neat through ball as he took a touch before calmly slotting the ball past the onrushing Steven Njunge as Homeboyz stunned Wazito with quickfire goals.
Homeboyz were not done yet in the first half as that man again, Ali Bahi who had tormented the Wazito midfield sprayed a pass across to Steven Etyang' who delivered the ball across the face of goal and found Peter Thiong'o totally unmarked in the box as he volleyed the ball into the net.
Stanley Okumbi had some harsh words for Wazito at half time which was evident from the brilliant start in the second half and it took only eight minutes for Wazito to pull one back as Johnstone Omurwa produced a contender for goal of the season with a thunderbolt from way outside the 18-yard area that caught David Juma unawares.
A long pass from Collins Odhiambo that was pinged from his own half was not dealt with by the Wazito defense as Allan Wanga chipped the ball over the keeper and fired the ball into the back of the net to take the game beyond Wazito in the 70th minute.
Omurwa who was having a torrid day in front of his own goal made amends in the opposition's goal as he bagged his second of the game in the 84th minute when Musa Masika delivered a cross that was miss controlled by Collins Odhiambo and handed the former Mathare United defender a simple tap in from close range.
The goal came a little too late as Homeboyz held on for the win to move to fourth on the log while Wazito dropped to 13th with six points from six games. Homeboyz next face Chemelil on Saturday 26th October while Wazito will look to pick themselves up against Posta Rangers a day later.
