Wananyuki pros­per af­ter beat­ing Lysa FC

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

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.
