Kariobangi Sharks sink AFC Leopards

Woes at the AFC Leopards continued when they lost to the Kenya Premier League debutants Kariobangi Sharks at Afraha Stadium on Saturday evening.

Imports Ebrimmah Sanneh and Tayo Odongo netted for the Nairobi based team for unbeaten run to countinue for the Sharks.

Sanneh from Gambia opened the score on the 51st minute before Odongo adding the second from a free kick  leaving Ingwe den who failed to make a single shot on target in the entire 90 minutes, did not have a single shot on goal in the opening half.

After a barren first half, Sanneh opened the scoring after latching onto a loose ball inside the area before beating Ian Otieno with a low shot.

Leopards acting coach Tom Juma made three changes, introducing midseason signings Ray Omondi, Keziron Kizito and Mudde Musa and rested Samuel Ndung’u, Whyvonne Isuza and off colour captain Duncan Otieno.

His opposite number, William Muluya, reacted by introducing the pacy Ovella Ochieng and striker Rodgers Omondi for Duke Abuya and Sanneh.

Leopards nearly equalised at the hour mark when Vincent Oburu soared high inside the box but his glancing header missed the target.
