A total of three matches were played as the National Super League (NSL) Round 6 matches continued across different venues in the country.
Vihiga 1-2 GFE
In what was the fixture of the weekend, Eldoret-based GFE continued with the fine form by downing Vihiga United 2-1 in an entertaining match played at the Mumias Sports Complex.
Patrick Okullo opened the scoring for Vihiga from the spot but Joseph Omondi leveled the scores in the 19th minute before Ayub Asila scored what was to be the winner in the 34th minute. Vihiga's Martin Imbalambala was booked for a reckless tackle and Amos Kigadi also entered into the referee's book for feigning in the penalty box.
GFE, promoted to the NSL from Division One just this season, have been on a fine run, winning all their four games so far and are on top of the log with 12 points.
Talanta 2-1 Kenya Police
FC Talanta continued with the upward trajectory by registering their third win on the trot, edging out Police FC 2-1 in another fast-paced match played at the Camp Toyoyo.
Talanta were evidently the better side in the first half and went to the breather on the lead, 2-0 goals courtesy of Brian Okeyo in the 32nd minute and the impressive Kevin Ndungu just before the break.
Police came back a much better side after the breather and surged forward in such of goals. Coach Charles Korea Omondi threw in Clifford Kinanga in the 70th minute and this gamble worked as they now used direct football that really troubled the Talanta defense. They won a penalty in the 88th minute and former Mathare United forward Eric Mmata stepped up to send Peter Mageto the wrong way for Police's consolation goal.
Nairobi City Stars 3-2 Kibera BlackStars
Kibera BlackStars rude welcome to the NSL continue with a 2-3 loss at the hands of Nairobi City Stars in a match played at the Camp Toyoyo.
The former Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side started strongly and could have scored at the quarter hour mark but Peter Wainaina's low shot hit the bar with the goalkeeper beaten. Ezekiel Odera opened the scoring with a fine header five minutes later but BlackStars responded swiftly after the restart, Ronald Reagan heading in past Claude Koffi to restore parity.
Mwinyi Hamisi capitalized on a defensive lapse to put City Stars ahead again at the half hour mark but Kibera Black Stars continued to work hard and were rewarded with an equaliser in the 40th minute, Tonni Barasa slotting in from the spot after Kevin Mulama was fouled in the box.
In an evenly balanced second half, Peter Wainaina scored what was to be the winner in the 75th minute and City Stars managed to contain a late surge by BlackStars to pick the crucial three points.
Four more matches will be played on Monday with the Thika Sub County Stadium hosting a triple header.
