A Daniel Odhiambo goal in added time just before half time break, and three more in the other half through Ezekiel Odera, a Kenedy Onyango penalty, and from Kelvin Etemesi led Nairobi City Stars to a 4-1 win over MCF on Saturday 24 September 2022 at Kasarani Annex during the second pool B tie in the Elite Pre-season Cup.
Oliver Maloba was the toast after he provided three assists; for the first goal and the second one in the 58th minute, and went on to win the penalty in the 64th minute that yielded the third goal. Elvis Ojiambo provided the cross that Etemesi bundled home the fourth goal in the 80th minute.
MCF substitute Isiaka Aleji tapped home a cutback for the consolation goal in the 79th minute. He came on a sub ten minutes earlier for Erick Michibu.
The win followed up on a 1-1 draw against Kenya Police during the opening game at the same venue on Tuesday 20 September 2022.
Up next for Simba wa Nairobi will be the final pool tie against Ulinzi Stars on Monday 26th at Annex starting 4 pm.
