Eldoret based GFE 105 and Nairobi City Stars won their respective duels on Saturday 15 July in the only two scheduled National Super League (NSL) games.

GFE 105 embarrassed NSL's second best performing home team Nakuru AllStars with a 4-0 win at the Afraha Stadium as City Stars narrowly edged out visiting Isibania 2-1 at Ruaraka, a game that had earlier been planned for Camp Toyoyo.

GFE led 2-0 at half time and doubled matters in the second half to hand the Allstars their second worst home defeat of the season after the 3-1 they suffered at the hands of City Stars at Afraha on 29 March.

Ayub Asila opened the scoring in the 20th minute with a diving header and six minutes on Wakoli Zeka - who scored the lone goal on Wednesday in a 1-0 over Agro Chemicals, doubled matters with his ninth goal of the season through a set play. Asila's goal came after GFE had been denied a deflected goal that was deemed offside. 

AllStars had the chance to claw back in the game but fluffed a penalty in the 36th minute, well saved by GFE 105's off season signing Nahashon Odhiambo.

Boniface Mukhekhe added a quickfire brace both coming within three minute to complete the rout. His first came off a free kick in the 55th minute and tap-in on the 58th minute off a blundering veteran AllStars keeper Evans Omondi who failed to control a back pass. 

The latest win, the second for GFE in four days sends the side three places up above Palos, Isibania and AllStars to settle at sixth from ninth with 26 points from 17 games.

From eight previous games, AllStars had only lost once and with a collection of 17 points stood out as the second best in home games. The team now drops to two places down to eighth with 24 points. The heavy loss led to the departure of coach George Maina

City Stars 2 Isibania 1

At Ruaraka, Nairobi City Stars registered a second straight win in a span of four days after taking down visiting Isibabia 2-1. 

The home team came to the game with a 2-0 win over Administration Police (AP) on Wednesday. On the same day Isibania had seen off FC Talanta 1-0 at Awendo. 

City Stars now rises from tenth spot to seventh with 25 points from 17 games as Isibania scales two places down to ninth while on 24 points.
