The first one was classic counter with Wazalendo outplaying the students in the midfield. Defender Moses Karochi showing experience exchanged passes with Erick Ochieng who quickly spotted the goal scorer to finish the quick counter attack in style.

The second goal was more of the students blunder after they failed to clear the ball after keeper Kevin Misachi had made a clever save.

Allan Akoyo the lone forward who scored a double pulled one for Daystar in the 11th minute with his seconds coming with 10 minutes to the end.

New signing Simon Mwangi scored a double for Wazalendo a goal in either side of the halves. To complete the assault Peter Mulati too scored a double for the winners late in the second half.

The captain said the club has one objective to play in the Premier together with the Wazalendo main team which is currently playing in the top flight league.
