History repeated itself as Tusker ended AFC Leopards 23-match unbeaten run in the Kenyan Premier League, beating them 0-2, on Saturday 21 April at Mbaraki Stadium.

Sammy Omollo’s boys capitalized on the Leopards’ defensive lapses to halt their cinderella run.

Defensive mistakes

After a barren first half, Brian Mandela tapped home an easy goal from a corner kick in the 58th minute to put the defending champions in the driving seat.

Tusker dominated the match, outplaying AFC in the midfield with skipper Joseph Shikokoti and company keeping their lethal forward at bay.

Second half substitute Luke Ochieng' doubled the score from a throw-in, beating Patrick Matasi very easily in the 82nd minute.


This becomes a third win in a row for the Brewers against Ingwe after beating them in both legs last season and also in the second leg of the 2010 season.

However, AFC Leopards are still at the peak of the table standings with 26 points, four ahead of second placed Tusker-FC">Tusker.
