AFC Leopards got the better of Kenya Police FC by beating them 3-0 in a Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League tie at the Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The 1998 champions started the game on the front foot, tormenting the Kenya Police defence right from the onset and their efforts got rewarded in the 14th minute when Victor Omune broke the deadlock after some fine play between Lewis Bandi and Cliff Nyakeya.
Ingwe continued roaring in bid to double their lead, and a goal came in the 40th minute when Omune supplied new captain Eugene Mukangula with the ball who fired home their second of the afternoon.
The law enforcers thought they had halved the deficit just seconds to the interval when Clifford Miheso struck a fine free-kick but goalkeeper Levis Opiyo was equal to the task to take the game to a 2-0 break.
Head coach Patrick Aussems saw his lads return for the second half with the same hunger going after Police FC right from the restart, John Mark Makwatta scoring for the second game since his return to the den.
The win has stretched AFC Leopards’ unbeaten run to nine games and now rise to tenth on the FKF Premier League log with 31 points after 23 matches.
Police FC have suffered their first defeat under head coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo who successful oversaw the first two games, churning out a win and a draw.
Police FC who suffered their tenth defeat of the season have swapped log positions with AFC Leopards, and currently lie 11th with 28 points after 24 matches.
