    Ushuru routed fellow promotion contenders KCB as Kenya Police won the law enforcers derby in FKF National Super League matches played on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

    A brace by Benson Amianda coupled with a goal apiece by Bill Oporia and Nelson Marasowe saw Ushuru shoot to the top of the log with 69 points from 31 matches. Kevin Migele scored a late consolation for the Bankers, the match ending 4-1. The win, the seventh in a row for Ushuru, consequently ended KCB’s seven-match winning streak.

    Police Derby

    Earlier, Kenya Police had dispatched Administration Police 4-1 in a law enforcers derby played at 2 pm. Benjamin Megason gave Kenya Police a 1-0 lead at the stroke of halftime. Joseph Oyule then doubled Police’s advantage before Clinton Kinanga scored a brace to complete a double over AP. Humphrey Alemba scored AP’s consolation. Kenya Police had won the first leg tie 2-0 in Nakuru.

    In an early kick-off played at Camp Toyoyo, visiting Palos overcame MOSCA 1-0. Alex Waiswa struck a late goal from the spot to hand Palos their second win in a row after a run of five matches without a victory. MOSCA meanwhile is in real danger of relegation, having amassed only 15 points from 30 matches.
