Five out of seven FKF National Super League matches played on Saturday, August 25, 2018, across different venues ended in identical 2-1 wins. Only Western Stima and Nairobi Stima recorded unlike scorelines, with both sides maintaining their places at the summit.

Western Stima edged out Administration Police 2-3 at Camp Toyoyo. Erastus Mwaniki, Kelvince Ochieng and Samuel Odhiambo were on target, with Samuel Gitonga’s brace only turning out to be mere consolation goals.

Nairobi Stima meanwhile, kept the pressure at the top with a 2-0 win over Kangemi All Stars in Naivasha. Brian Musa and Victor Ndinya were on target.

KCB also needed a late goal by Michael Osundwa to edge out hosts Nakuru All Stars 2-1 at the AFraha Stadium in Nakuru. Simon Abuko had put KCB up in the 10th minute before John Otieno restored parity at the half hour mark. Osundwa would score in stoppage time to hand the Bankers all three points.
