Real Kakamora 0 – Western United 2

The two sides were known for their pace and it was soon on display on the pitch with Nathan Kera forcing the Real Kakamora defenders into action while on the other end Paul Hiri did his part to worry the Western United backline.
Kera came close to scoring in the fifth minute with a powerful right footed shot that went too high too soon and a quick restart saw Real Kakamora repeat the feat in a counter attack that Richard Mama completed with a shot which like his counterpart’s did not go where it was intended to.
Despite their position in the table Real Kakamora were fine performers and they gave their opponents a real challenge by denying them full control of the game and attacking at any opportunity they had resulting in a quite balanced match in terms of possession.
Western United, however, broke through in the 28th minute through Kera who picked up a cross from John Anita on the right before hammering the ball into the back of the net to put his side in front.
Further efforts came from Western United but none had Kera’s success so they had only a slender lead going into the half time break.
The second half was as action packed as first as Real Kakamora tried to chisel away the strength of Western United by repeatedly battering them with long passes and overlap runs from their quick defenders.
After some moments of nervousness Western United settled into their pattern and made more organized passes and runs that they did in the first half but their attack was dented by below par finishing from the strikers.
However, by keeping the momentum of their attack going Western United were able to get the important buffer goal in the 85th minute through Hickley Rence who finished a text book cut back pass from Kera.
Real Kakamora refused to go down without a fight but the referee’s whistle put everything to an end and handed their opponents another valuable 3 points.
