This matchweek served as a humbling reminder that fortunes can swiftly shift in favor of others at any given moment. The outstanding performance of the Sharkmen captured our attention this weekend.

In a remarkable demonstration of superiority, Kariobangi Sharks delivered a resounding blow to the title aspirations of Posta Rangers, securing an emphatic 5-1 victory in an FKF Premier League showdown at Police Sacco Stadium. The result, arguably the most surprising of the season, propelled Sharks to the 12th spot on the league table, while Rangers remained entrenched in fourth place, trailing table-toppers Gor Mahia by a staggering 11 points.
From the outset, Sharks seized control of the match, dictating the tempo with early chances that went begging for Ian Taifa and John Makwatta. However, it was Julius Masaba who broke the deadlock in the 15th minute, setting the tone for Sharks’ relentless onslaught. Despite Rangers’ attempts to rally, showcased by Brian Marita’s long-range effort and spirited pushes from Christopher Oruchum and Patrick Otieno, Sharks maintained their momentum. Masaba capitalized on John Makwatta’s assist to secure his brace, while Makwatta himself added his name to the scoresheet, amplifying Sharks’ lead to 3-0. Even Rangers’ flurry of substitutions failed to stem the tide, as Sharks continued to threaten, with Leonlevitt Otieno and Fortune Omotto extending their side’s advantage to 5-0. Although Brian Otieno salvaged a late consolation goal for Rangers in injury time, it was Sharks who emerged triumphant, leaving Rangers reeling from the devastating defeat.

Elsewhere, Tusker put an end to AFC Leopard’s unbeaten streak of 10 matches. Mike Oduor’s corner kick delivery was inadvertently deflected into the back of the net by AFC Leopards defenders. Ingwe exhibited swiftness off the restart in the second half, with a close chance, but Opondo intervened brilliantly, tipping Gitego’s shot over the bar. Njuguna of Tusker also attempted a shot in the 79th minute, finding space on the right, but his effort flew wide. Consequently, the match concluded with Tusker clinching three points.

Tanui wasted no time in breaking the deadlock for Talanta as he swiftly found the net in the 11th minute during their encounter against Nzoia Sugar at Sudi Stadium. However, the home team were determined and refused to concede another defeat on their turf. Their response came in the 60th minute when Oyugi capitalized on an assist from David Simiyu to level the scoreline. The match unfolded with fluctuating fortunes for both sides, presenting moments of intensity and uncertainty. Ultimately, neither team could secure a decisive victory, and the game concluded with both Talanta and Nzoia Sugar earning a solitary point apiece.

Abana Beingo left no doubt about their identity as they asserted their presence in their match against Ulinzi Stars, despite a challenging start to the first half. Hilary Otieno marked the breakthrough for Abana Beingo, finding the back of the net in the 45th minute. KK Homeboyz further solidified their lead in the 57th minute courtesy of Brian Eshihanda, following an Estone Esiye delivery. With this commanding performance, Abana Beingo concluded the match in the forefront and is set to make waves in the league standings.

As the game week neared its end, Muhoroni seized an advantage from an own goal by Kenya Police within the first 9 minutes of their encounter at Police Sacco, broadcasted by KBC. It marked a critical blunder on Police’s part, prompting Muhoroni to fortify their defensive lines while remaining poised to capitalize on any openings. Despite Muhoroni’s strategic approach, Police FC managed to mount a comeback, equalizing in the 75th minute through Kinanga. The match ultimately culminated in a draw, highlighting the unpredictability and intensity of the encounter.
