Ochieng’, Mike Baraza defy Thika United efforts

ALL were good goals at Thika Municipal Stadium but Victor Ochieng’ and Mike Baraza’s emphasized AFC Leopards’ edge as they beat Thika United 2-1 to brush away the intervention of Moses Arita for the home side.

There was a great atmosphere of football -- defying a terribly poor pitch -- the most appreciative being a throng of Leopards’ supporters who had poured into town.

Their team maintained top place on the Kenyan Premier League table, the lead stretching to six points, at least until second-placed Sofapaka [20 points] play Gor Mahia on Sunday at the City Stadium.

Other results on Saturday were: Western Stima 3-0 Oserian; Muhoroni Youth 1-0 Sony Sugar; Rangers 0-0 Karuturi
