    FC Talanta registered their third win in a row with a 2-1 triumph over Kenya Police in a match played at Camp Toyoyo. Eldoret-based GFE 105 also registered their fourth win in four games to move to the summit. Five matches were played across the country over the weekend, with four other matches set to be played today, Monday 03 2017.

    On Saturday, Administration Police beat visiting St Joseph Youth 3-1 at the Camp Toyoyo. A brace by Benjamin Kahindi coupled with a Keffa Momanyi goal was enough to hand AP maximum points. St Joseph Youth got their consolation through Adam Fadhili. Elsewhere in Awendo, Isibania lost further footing, giving in 1-0 to Nairobi Stima.

    Three matches were played  Sunday, with a doubleheader lighting up Camp Toyoyo. In the first match, FC Talanta moved to fourth on the log with a 2-1 win over Kenya Police. A goal apiece by Brian Okeyo and Kevin Ndung’u gave Talanta a 2-0 halftime lead. Eric Mmata scored late in the second half for Police’s consolation. City Stars then made it three wins in six matches with a hard fought 3-2 triumph over Kibera Black Stars. The latter twice came from behind before Peter Wainaina scored the winner in the 75th minute. In Mumias, GFE 105 came from behind to edge out hosts Vihiga United 1-2. Joseph Omondi and Ayub Asilla scored for GFE to cancel out Patrick Okullo’s early goal.

    GFE 105 tops the league with 12 points from four games. Ushuru, Nairobi City Stars, and FC Talanta are second, third and fourth respectively, with 10 points apiece. Ushuru, however, has a superior goal difference of five goals, one more than Nairobi City Stars. Wazito completes the top five with nine points.
