Kariobangi Sharks continued their 2018 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season preparations with a 7-1 win over Nairobi Stima on Friday January 12, 2018 in a friendly match played at the Utalii Grounds.
Brian Makara Juma, who was recently acquired from Liberty Sports Academy in a four-year deal, scored a hattrick for Sharks while Ovella Ochieng grabbed a brace. Scoring a goal each for their side were Duke Abuya and Erick Kapaito as Vincent Odongo netted a consolation goal.
Kariobangi Sharks will be seeking to build on their 2017 league performance where they finished third overall in what was their maiden season in top-flight football. They will however have to do much more after losing the league’s top scorer Masoud Juma to South African side Cape Town City.
