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.
