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.
Ushuru edged out Bidco United 0-1 at the Thika Stadium courtesy of a first-half strike by Benson Amianda to move to 32 points from 17 matches, only four points behind Western Stima.
Nairobi Stima also notched a third win in as many matches to move to third with 31 points from 17 matches. The Powermen, on Saturday, May 19, 2018, dispatched rivals KCB at the Karuturi Grounds, consequently switching places with the Bankers.
KCB is fourth following the loss, with 30 points, similar to fifth-placed Kibera Black Stars, who however have an inferior goal difference.
Black Stars came from behind to snatch a 2-1 win over visiting Kisumu All-Stars at Camp Toyoyo on Friday.
Nakuru All Stars also notched their second win of the season when they narrowly edged past Modern Coast Rangers 2-1 at the Afraha Stadium, while Green Commandoes, for the fourth time in a row, dropped points, this time at the hands of Nairobi City Stars in a 1-1 draw at the Bukhungu Stadium.
