Homeboyz, Ulinzi Storm League Under-20 Final

Kakamega Homeboyz and Ulinzi Stars junior teams stormed the final of the Kenyan Premier League Under-20 Championship after edging out Mathare United and Gor Mahia respectively in the semi-finals at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Thursday.

Homeboyz played with 10 men for the last four minutes of the game as they ground out a slim 1-0 victory over Mathare, as Gor Mahia succumbed to a 3-2 loss to Ulinzi Stars.

Homeboyz, under the tutelage of former AFC Leopards coach Gilbert Selebwa, displayed some brilliant skills in their game, and went ahead in the fifth minute through striker Brian Munyendo.

Mathare found it hard to provide a good response, although John Mwangi and Enock Momanyi created a number of clear-cut chances.

The first semi-final match between Gor and Mathare was more entertaining.

Wilson Mwendwa scored in the second minute for K’Ogalo juniors, but Dennis Owino headed in an equaliser for the junior soldiers.
