Western Stima, for the third time in a row, failed to take home all three points with their latest slip coming at the hands of FC Talanta an FKF National Super League match played on Friday, May 18, 2018, at Camp Toyoyo.

It took a last-gasp strike by left back Geoffrey Ochieng to rescue a point for the Powermen after Paul Karuri had sent Talanta into a 21st-minute lead.

The draw sees Stima’s lead reduced to only four points, with second-placed Ushuru having a match in hand.
