Musingu beat Vihiga Boys 2-0 in an entertaining match staged at the Bukhungu Stadium yesterday evening while Shanderema silenced Emusire Boys, also from Vihiga County, with a similar margin, at the Kakamega Approved school this afternoon.

The Scorpions saw their opponents’ back of the net in the 21st minute through talented striker Allan Litwaka.

Elvis Ochieng aka N’Golo Kante sealed their victory in the 66th minute via a superb volley throwing their fans into frenzied celebrations.

The match was played under tight security as police battled hundreds of protesters who wanted to make their way into the stadium.

Musingu from Ikolomani are the new Kakamega County soccer champions after clinching the title on Saturday, July 8 with a 2-1 victory over the then-defending champions Shanderema from Shinyalu.

Shanderema aka “Eagles”, on the other hand, made their intentions known when they saw off Emusire 2-0.

Both teams are representing the county in the regionals being played at Bukhungu, Masinde Muliro University, Kakamega Approved School, St. Ignatius Mukumu Boys, and St. Peter’s Seminary-Mukumu, among others.

In another match, Kibabii Boys from Bungoma and Bujumba from Busia played to a 1-1 draw at Bukhungu.

Musingu head coach Brenden Mwinamo hailed his players who he said remained focused on the pitch and that he was confident of another victory today when they face Bujumba Boys from Busia County.

His Shanderema counterpart Kevin Asuba also exuded confidence that they would progress to the finals.

Kakamega Governor Fernandes Barasa, who witnessed the opening match, assured of tight security and said the championships would go on in spite of the ongoing protest demonstrations.
