Newly-appointed Western Stima coach Henry Omino got off to a fine start on his second stint at club guiding the Kakamega-based outfit to a 2-1 win over Top Fry Nakuru.

It was a double reward for Omino as his team climbed to the top of the league table with 9 points from four matches.

The results left Top Fry, who wasted numerous chances including a missed first half penalty by Erustus Mwaniki, without a point in four outings.

Although Mwaniki would later on atone for his sins with a goal before the break, strikes from Fred Shimonyo and Job Omuse, either side of the break, guaranteed Stima all three points in the match that was played at Afraha Stadium.

But the biggest upset of the weekend was Chemelil Sugar’s 1-0 win over Sofapka that saw the 2009 champions lose valuable ground at this stage of the campaign.

The game was settled by Gerson Likono’s first half goal that enabled the sugar millers to move second on the table with 8 points from four matches.

Batoto ba Mungu have now dropped from the second spot to sixth place with 6 points from four matches.
