Eddie Kuria was the toast of the day for Jericho All Stars after his 16th minute strike dimmed Shauri Moyo Blue Stars in a nerve-wrecking encounter.

Kuria tapped home a Victor Walerah cross from the left flank to grab the opener that proved the difference in a match despite ending the match one man less after combative left-back Maqbul Mohammed was shown red after a second bookable offense in the second half.

Jericho were hungry for goals and it was evident in the opening exchanges where Kuria alias Bombay netted with the first surge that bore fruit for the visitors who were without their coach Thomas Okong’o who watched from the stands following a one match ban from the touchline.

In the second half, Jericho’s standing coach Joseph Agidi introduced Kinuthia Samuel and Brian Odhiambo in place of Walerah and Kevin Ndubuliwa respectively while Shauri brought in Otieno Vincent for Omondi Stephen.

Odhiambo immediately made an impact in Jericho but Peter Ngacha put a star performance to deny him a crystal chance.

Blue Stars under coach Rodgers Khamati searched deep for an equalizer but their efforts were unfruitful as Jericho’s defense held forte until the final whistle.
