FKF Premier League top scorer Erick Kapito continued with his impressive run of form scoring a brace and providing an assist to take his season tally to 24 goals in Kariobangi Sharks’ 3-1 victory over visiting Nzoia Sugar.

Kapaito is now four goals shy of Charles Odero’s (Scarlet FC) feat (28 goals) he achieved in the 1983 season.

The win saw Sharks go level on 47 points with third placed AFC Leopards who beat Ulinzi Stars on Thursday.

After failing to register a win in their last three matches, Kapaito who has also not scored since their 2-1 win over Gor Mahia in July 21 rose to the occasion to steer Sharks to their 14th win of the season.
