Arolo (center) has been in fine form Sofapaka FC who are also coached by Ugandan coach Sam Simbwa.
Sofapaka maintained the six-point gap they had bridged with table-toppers Gor Mahia going into the weekend fixtures’ after they cruised Chemelil Sugar 4-1 at Narok Stadium.
Gor had taken an overnight nine-point lead following their 4-0 annihilation of Nzoia Sugar in Kisumu on Saturday before Batoto Ba Mungu reduced it to six points following the thumping win over Chemelil.
Sofapaka were leaving nothing to chance in keeping their title race alive and consolidate their second spot on the log with Ugandan Striker Umaru Kasumba scoring a brace assited by Feni Ali ,Ezekiel Okare and Rodgers Aloro contributed a goal each.
By scoring twice to increase his tally to eight goals, Kasumba is a apparently living up to his promise of overtaking KPL top marksman Stephen Waruru of Ulinzi Stars (11 goals) in pursuit of the 2017 Golden Boot Award.
