Sofapaka beat visiting side Kakamega Homeboyz 3-1 in a Football Kenya Federation Premier League midweek action staged at Kasarani Annex on Thursday.

Goals either half by Roddy Manga, Sébastine Sunday, and Simon Abuko were all that the home side needed to beat Homeboyz.

Manga scored a quick goal in the opening minute of the match. The striker made no mistakes pouncing on Ben Stanley’s delivery to the head against past Homeboyz custodian Babu.

At the quarter, Sofapaka came close to doubling their lead through Alex Imbusia. The striker collected Ben Stanley’s pass, but his shot went a few inches wide.

At the hour mark, the visitors had a glorious opportunity to level the scores through Moses Mudavadi, but Roddy Manga reacted just in time to intercept the midfielder’s effort.

Five minutes before the break, the 2009 KPL champions had another chance to double their lead through Roddy Manga. The striker was once again put through on goal by Ben Stanley, but he failed to direct his header into an empty net from the near post.

Ten minutes after restarting for the final half, Sofapaka got their second goal through Sébastine Sunday. The midfielder sneaked through the crowd to head the ball home at the near post from Ben Stanley’s corner kick delivery.

With a quarter hour to play, the visitors pulled a goal back in the match through Michael Karamor. The striker made no mistakes in his spot-slotting in the past, says Simon Masaka.

Ten minutes from time, Sofapaka extended their lead through Simon Abuko. The forward took no chances from the spot, putting the ball beyond goalkeeper Babu after Ben Stanley was brought down in the penalty area by Collins Odhiambo, as Sofapaka  held on for maximum points.
