Umar Kasumba (L) scored twice

Ugandan striker Umar Kasumba was on target as his Sofapaka side trounced Kariobangi Sharks 2-0 in a Kenyan Premier League match on Sunday at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos County.

Cliff Kasuti and former Police FC and SC Villa striker scored the goals that propelled the John Baraza coached side to victory.

Fresh from wining the Sportpesa Cup, Ugandan striker George Abege and his Sharks side went into the game as odds on favorites to win but the Batoto Ba Mungu proved to good.

Cliff Kasuti opened the scoring early in the first half before Kasumba secured the results with a stoppage time goal.

Victory saw Sofapaka climb to fourth in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) table with 17 points, seven behind league leaders Mathare United.

Next for Sofapaka is a home match against an equally in-form Nzoia Sugar.

The two teams will face-off on Thursday 7th January at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
