Tusker FC successfully defended their Football Kenya Federation Premier League title, clinching the 2021-2022 league crown after edging Posta Rangers 2-0 in the final outing of the season at the Ruaraka Sports Complex on Sunday.
Siwa Shaphan put the Brewers ahead late in the first half of the particular tie before Jackson Macharia extended the Robert Matano’s charges lead deep into the second stanza.
Tusker needed to win the fixture to guarantee their title defense as they were level on points (60) with second placed Kakamega Homeboyz heading into the last match of the 2021-2022 FKF Premier League campaign.
They retained the league with 63 points and a healthy goal difference of 23 ahead of Homeboyz, thanks to goal difference advantage.
Tusker emerged champions after Kariobangi Sharks failed to show up for a scheduled encounter with Kakamega Homeboyz at the Mumias Sports Complex on Sunday, denying the home team a chance to score the desired number of goals to win their maiden FKF Premier League.
The Bernard Mwalala’s men were handed three walkover points and two goals consequently.
Apparently, the outcome meant Tusker retained the league’s top spot with a goal difference of 4 over the Homeboyz after both ends recorded 63 league points on the last day of the campaign.
