AFC Leopards leapfrogged Gor Mahia into the second place in the Tusker Premier League with a 1-3 win over relegation threatened Oserian, on Saturday 27 October, at Oserian Sports Complex.

The exciting game started at a high tempo with both teams making numerous raids.

Three goals 

It took 15 minutes before either team’s register a score. Ben Barasa struck home in the 8th minute to put the Flower-men ahead, but their celebrations were cut-short with Mike Barasa’s brilliant equalizer in the 12th minute.

Two minutes later, Bernard Mang'oli doubled the lead with a sterling free-kick before the hosts were reduced to ten-men, following the dismissal of skipper Franklin Osama for a second bookable offense in the 47th minute.

Season fortunes

In the 85th minute, a close range strike from veteran midfielder Charles Okwemba killed the game off, intensifying Oserian's relegation woes.

Leopards are now level on points [54] with league leaders Tusker, but edged out on goal superiority.

The Brewers are scheduled to clash against third-placed Gor Mahia on Sunday 28 October, in what has been billed as a title decider.
