KOSSA 3 – Marist Fire 1

Marist Fire’s guest players are yet to return any favours to their club after 3 matches and coach Augustine Omearo may need some magic to bolster his side’s chances for a top four finish.
Paul Wale featured in his first match for KOSSA since leaving the club in 2009 and his performance on the right flanks was a major factor in their win and claim to all 3 points.
From the opening whistle Wale was busy chasing past the Marist Fire defenders and crossing balls to their penalty area but neither Nicholas Muri nor Clifford Wate was able to finish from there.
Wale then took matters into his own hands in the 25th minute and scored KOSSA’s first goal of the day with a strike into the back of the net from close range and that proved to be the only goal that was scored in the first half.
Marist Fire were on the score boards within a minute of returning to play courtesy of a Abraham Maezama penalty after Ben Hibiscus was fouled in the 18-yard box by a KOSSA defender.
Marist Fire’s goal levelled the playing field a little and the game looked like it was headed for a draw when national U-17 striker, Harrison Mala, brought in for Wate, gave the lead back to KOSSA with a clever goal in the 76th minute.
Three (3) minutes later it was all over for Marist Fire when Muri picked up a through pass and beat Santus Kabini for KOSSA’s third goal of the day which was enough to secure their second victory in the second round of the Telekom S-League.
