GFE 105 reclaimed top spot in the FKF National Super League despite being held to a goalless draw by Bidco United in Thika. League debutants Isibania also secured their maiden win in the second tier league with a 3-4 win over St Joseph Youth in Nakuru.

Two matches were beamed live on Saturday on free to air channel Bamba Sports. In the first match, Kenya Police played out their third draw of the season in a 0-0 stalemate with Nairobi City Stars. KCB then broke FC Talanta’s three-game winning run, beating the Communication Authority sponsored side 2-0. Brian Yator scored a brace for KCB.

In other matches played on Saturday, Administration Police got a surprise 1-0 win over Modern Coast Rangers at the Mbaraki Sports Club. Kalvin Osumba struck in the second half to hand AP their third win of the season. At the Karuturi grounds, Wazito played out a 1-1 draw with Ushuru. Victor Ochieng scored in the 13th minute to hand Ushuru a 1-0 halftime lead before Austine Ochieng restored parity in the second half. The result was the first draw for Wazito who have won four and drawn two of the seven matches played. At the Afraha Stadium, newbies Isibania got their maiden win courtesy of a brace by Richard Mulee and a goal apiece by Alex Sunga and Michael Babu.

Four matches were played on Sunday, with two of them ending in stalemates. Debutants Kibera Black Stars were held to a barren draw by Kisumu based Palos in a match staged at the Camp Toyoyo.
