FKF-PL season opener: Advantage Tusker, more work to do for Gor Mahia & Police but Leopards, Shabana fans will need to be patient
Tusker were among three teams that won on matchday one as Gor Mahia were held by Sofapaka but a lack of goals for AFC Leopards and Shabana should be a concern
Ararat opened the scoring through right winger Artur Serobyan, who cut with the ball inside from the right flank before unleashing a ferocious strike into the back of the net to put the hosts ahead.
They would double their lead through Tera in the second half, when a freekick by Serobyan struck the upright before causing confusion in the box, which resulted in the 25-year old taking advantage of a rebound to net his first goal of the season.
Serobyan, who had been a nuisance to the Van defense all afternoon, would then hit the final nail in their coffin when he won a penalty, before converting it himself to score his second of the night and Ararat’s third of the evening.

He has made eight appearances for Ararat since the beginning of the 2023/2024 season, including in four UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying matches.
