Kogalo grabbed their second win of the season with a timely 1-0 win over second placed Sofapaka. The match was played at the Nairobi City stadium and was subject to yet another Super Sport ban.
The all important goal came via a penalty in the 41st minute. Kevin Omondi’s attempt at goal was handled by a Sofapaka defender. Rama Salim stepped up and cooly found the back of the net.
The win over a very good Sofapaka team bodes well for the team’s future. Coach Logarusic has been working hard at implementing his system and introducing knew formations that demand fitness and concentration. The players are slowly adapting.
The game marked a return for Jerim Onyango who aqcuited himself well as well as Donald Mosoti. Meanwhile Teddy Akumu also had a good game and appears to be slowly returning to his form of 2 years ago. Rama Salim and Kevin Omondi also proved their mettle.
