KK Homeboyz encountered FC Talanta at Thika Stadium in the opening match of the match week. The initial half concluded with no breakthroughs, yet Abana Beingo swiftly gained momentum in the 2nd minute of the second half when Shafik converted a penalty after Hillary Otieno was fouled. The game persisted with both teams making attempts and saves until Kipruto of Talanta leveled the score in the final moments of the game. His impressive goal from an improbable angle revitalized Talanta’s position, ultimately resulting in a draw.

At Muhoroni Youth Stadium, the opening fixture of Matchweek 23 saw Tusker FC facing off against Muhoroni Youth. Kapaito showcased his talent by breaking the deadlock in the 35th minute, capitalizing on a Daniel Sakari assist to give the Brewers the lead at halftime. Continuing his dominance, Kapaito struck again in the 52nd minute, notching his second goal of the game and his eighth of the season from a John Njuguna delivery. Muhoroni Youth, however, rallied at their home ground, with Adebowale finding the net in the 81st minute, courtesy of an assist from Otieno Cliff, thereby narrowing the scoreline to 2-1.

Ending in a goalless scoreline, the Sharkmen fiercely contested their match against Nairobi City Stars at Police Sacco Stadium. In a display of defensive prowess, Edwin Mukolwe, donning the Nairobi City Stars jersey, bragged his exceptional shot-stopping abilities, tirelessly guarding his team’s goalpost against the relentless attacks of the Sharkmen throughout the entirety of the match.

At Machakos Stadium, Omalla solidified his position for the golden boot when he made his impact felt by finding the net within the opening minute, leaving Posta Rangers in disarray. Following suit, Sylvester Owino capitalized on a corner kick to secure Gor Mahia’s second goal, granting the league leaders a decisive advantage. Austin continued Gor Mahia’s offensive onslaught by netting the third goal, marking his sixth of the season and indicating a promising campaign ahead. Undeterred, he furthered his tally with a second goal, his seventh of the season, sealing Gor Mahia’s well-deserved victory. The rapid succession of goals spelled trouble for the mailmen, who have long grappled with Gor Mahia’s dominance, with their last triumph over the champions dating back to October 2022. This outcome extends Gor Mahia’s supremacy over Posta Rangers, bolstering their 11-point lead at the league’s pinnacle and reaffirming their formidable presence in the competition.

As the first day of the matchweek drew to a close, KCB broadcasted a deadlock encounter between Sofapaka and Bidco United.

Baron Ochieng seized the opportunity, unleashing a formidable free-kick from beyond the 18-yard box, propelling Sofapaka into an early lead. Nonetheless, Mogaka made a comeback, marking his return to the pitch after a two-year hiatus due to injury. His goal, orchestrated from a pass by Kelwish, swiftly altered the course of the match, resulting in a 1-1 deadlock—an incredible come back story.
