Coastweek -- Bandari FC put up their best performance in the SportPesa Premier League and registered an easy 3-0 win against the visiting Thika United in a match played at Mbaraki Sports Club in Mombasa.

Thika, who started the game on a high note missing a penalty, were 2-0 down at half time after goals by Dan Sserunkuma and Darius Msagha. Bandari got their third goal in the second half via Sserunkuma.

The Coastal team moved to second place having 10 points from five matches, two points behind leaders Gor Mahia.

The visitors had an upper hand in the first 10 minutes whereby they were awarded a penalty by Murang’a based referee, George Mwai in the ninth minute when striker Badi Baraka was fouled by Bandari defender Felly Mulumba.

But a penalty kick by Dennis Omino was brilliantly saved by goalkeeper Joseph Okoth who did well in the absence of Wilson Obungu.

Obunga was red-carded last weekend during their match against Muhoroni Youth.

Then came Bandari’s firt goal in the 17th minute when Anthony Wambani was fouled inside the box by Thika goalkeeper Eliud Emase and Sserunkuma made no mistake from giving his team the lead.

Sserunkuma could have scored his second goal in the 26th minute but fumbled infront of the goal off a fine pass by Musa Mudde.

Wambani was the maker of the second goal in the 39th minute when he crossed to the centre for Msagha to send a bicycle kick into the far corner of the net.

In the second session, Bandari had an upper hand displaying an entertaining footwork that had their home crowd cheering.

It was no surprise when a one-two combination between Mudde and Shaaban Kenga resulted in Sserunkuma easily tipping the ball home past helpless Emase.

Bandari head coach, Paul Nkata had no words to express in praising his players saying he was completely satisfied with the way they played.

“I hope the fans had today received what they want from the players. We are now waiting for our next opponents,” said Nkata.

Thika United head coach, James Nandwa said missing of the penalty in the early minutes killed the team morale. “Had we converted the spot kick, the game could have changed.

“But today, we did not play well,” said Nandwa.
