Football Kenya Federation (FKF) on Saturday 10 December pulled a first in handing 2016 National Super League (NSL) champions Nzoia United a trophy for their spoils in the year.
The team coached by Bernard Mwalala was rampant in the season, blowing opposition home and away in equal measure. A tremendous campaign for the team from Bungoma saw the team lose just two matches all season, one away and one at home.
The team went a record 32 games without tasting defeat till an Afraha Stadium duel on Wednesday 2 November went awry, as the home team Nakuru AllStars came from a goal down to beat Nzoia 2-1 after a with a brace from Elvis Rupia.
The second loss, delivered by Kariobangi Sharks on the final day of the season, on Saturday 10 December, is one that shattered their unbeaten record at home. That however did not stop them from celebrating the awarding of the cup presented at Sudi soon after the loss.
The team managed 92 points out of a total 114 in the season and was the best offensive team with 73 goals and best defensive side having conceded just 20 goals all year.
The team also showed flashes of brilliance in the GOtv Shield, going all the way to the quarter finals, and in the process seeing off Gor Mahia along the way before falling to Ulinzi Stars on post match penalties.
