NSL: Mwachiponi stars as Agro blow off KCB's KPL dream

Mohammed Mwachiponi scored and provided an assist as Agrochemicals came from a goal down to manage a 2-1 win over KCB to quash the Bankers dreams of making it to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) -the match having been played at Camp Toyoyo on Saturday 3 December.

In what proved to be a torrid afternoon for the custodians, Agrochemicals keeper Nickson Ochieng ensured he wasn't to bereft behind in the roster of giving gifts to the opponent. 

Here, the visitors had started in a positive mood with Shaphan Oyugi having a stellar performance at the middle of the park. Mohammed Mwachiponi had the first sight at goal for the visitors in the 15th minute after being put through by Naftali Odhiambo but his effort was too tame to trouble Zachary Onyango in the KCB goal. 

Ochieng's howler

The home side were patient in waiting for their chance to break the deadlock and when it came, it was out of nothing. Benjamin Chaka who had troubling Agro from the right wing played a cut back to Samuel Mwangi his shot having been saved by Ochieng in the Agro goal but with the keeper showing his off ball antics, was robbed of the ball by Brian Yator with the keep having no choice but to bring him down. 

With the referee having pointed to the spot, up stepped Job Omuse to give the bankers the lead, a scoreline that remained until the break. Agro seem to have taken the warming in the first half and came for the next 45 minutes guns blazing. 

Agro quick goals

Mwachiponi who had a quite half was to rise above the bankers defence meeting a cross from the right wing to restore parity ten minutes after resumption. Before KCB would settle, Agro hit again. Saphan who had been the engine of the Agro midfield was to gloss his performance with a goal of his own burring a rebound after Mwachiponi's effort had been parried by Onyango in the KCB goal. 

The Agro second goal had them purring with Safan being withdrawn for Abdularaman Ssemandwa to give them the much needed energy in the midfield. With the visitors resolving to match wasting tactics, Leonard Saleh threw in Edwin Oduor for Brian Yator in search of a goal but it proved a futile move in denying the boys from Muhoroni the much needed three points.
