Wananyuki prosper after beating Lysa FC
Wananyuki piled more pressure on leaders Good Hope at the top of the Super 8 Mombasa Premier League after edging LYSA 3-2 in a nervy encounter at MTTI grounds.
Reagan Otieno was the hero of the day as his brace including a late winning strike gave Wananyuki the vital three points much to the delight of the crowd, who got treated to a spectacular grassroot football treat courtesy of Extreme Sports Limited.
After early goal by Bernard Safari was doubled by Otieno immediately in the second minute of the game, Wananyuki had clearly taken over the proceedings but the visitors were in no mood to let them off that fast and they reduced the deficit in the 32 minute through Mwalim Athman.
Athman then made it 2-2 just before the break to spark celebrations as they headed into the breather.
The score line stood firm and it seemed destined for a draw until late five minutes before the final whistle.
