Tusker put a firm grip on the FKF Premier League top position with a convincing 4-1 win over Posta Rangers in one of two matches played today, Thursday, February 18, 2021.

Teen sensation Henry Meja struck a brace, while Jackson Macharia and Luke Namanda were also on the scoresheet to see off a win for the Brewers, their ninth of the season after 12 matches. Ezekiel Okare’s first-half equalizer turned out to be a mere consolation.

The win cements Tusker’s position at the top: 29 points out of a possible 36. KCB comes second with 25, albeit with two matches in hand.

In Mumias, meanwhile, Kariobangi Sharks had to wait until the 79th minute for the all-important goal against Vihiga United. Eric Kapaito’s netted his 13th goal of the season to end the tie 1-0.

The win elevates Sharks to third, with 21 points from 12 matches.
