After holding on to the 1-1 score line, Kawangware would succumb to the attacking slickness of Kabete in the second half when Patrick Shikuri made it 2-1 at the hour mark and the Robert Orangi’s Kabete never looked back from then with Antony Kimani cushioning the win with a superb 83 rd minute goal that guaranteed the West conference the vital three points.

Kevin Wangwe inspired the Makongeni based outfit to the resounding victory as he claimed a brace after his side put a classic show to the delight of their home fans who showed support to their side with gleeful cheers on the sun soaked afternoon.
Wangwe had opened the scoring 7 minutes after kick-off before rounding up the rout at the stroke of half time as MASA overpowered the visiting West conference team who started the second half of their campaign on a sour note.

The visitors found the going tough as they failed to crack the West conference team who held forte until the end of the match forcing the Thomas Okong’s men to share the humble pie.
KAYOLE YOUTH VS MELTA KABIRIA

goals from the League’s and Competition Committee.
