Maiden KPL win for Kariobangi Sharks

Promoted Kariobangi Sharks finally came good after beating hosts Nzoia Sugar 2-0 at Sudi Stadium on Sunday 9 April to register their first ever Kenyan Premier League win. 

Sharks scored on either half for the win. Interestingly, it is their off season signing from Nzoia United Timothy Bolton Omwenga who opened the scoring against his former side in just the fourth minute. 

No fluke

Patilah Omoto doubled matters seven minutes after the hour mark to hand Nzoia a second straight defeat following a recent 2-1 fall to AFC Leopards. 

Sharks maiden KPL win proved their season ending 1-0 win at the same venue on the final day of the 2016 National Super League (NSL), that ultimately sealed second spot to earn them an automatic ticket to the Premier League, was no fluke. 

Sharks went to the game reeling from three straight defeats; 3-1 to Gor Mahia, and identical 1-0 losses to Muhoroni and Ulinzi Stars and the three points in the bag will certainly loosen the heavy pressure on young coach William Muluya's shoulders. 

Sharks moves a single spot up, from 17th to 16th with their latest three points to move to within a point of eleventh placed Nzoia Sugar.
