Sony Sugar lost their one hundred percent record in the new season of the Kenyan Premier League when they were held to a barren draw by Chemelil Sugar in Awendo on Saturday.

However, the sugar millers regained the league leadership which they had temporarily lost to Sofapaka, who thrashed Top Fry Nakuru 3-0 twenty four hours earlier. Sony top the league table with 7 points from three matches.

Zedekiah 'Zico' Otieno's man have not only avoided defeat thus far, but their newly signed goalkeeper, Lucas Indeche is yet to conceded a goal in three straight matches.

The highly-billed sugar belt derby failed to live up to its expectation but Sony Sugar will be the happier of the lot as they continued to enjoy a good start to the season.

At City Stadium in Nairobi, KCB threw away a one-goal lead to settle for a 1-1 draw with Nairobi City Stars.

Former Gor Mahia striker Paul Kiongera gave KCB the lead early in the second half but City Stars replied almost immediately through pint-sized Ugandan striker Jimmy Bagaye, formerly of AFC Leopards.

The bankers are still without a win this season after drawing 1-1 with AFC Leopards in their first match before falling a shock 0-1 loss to debutants KRA last weekend.

On the other hand, City Stars have fared marginally better following a season opening 0-2 loss to Gor Mahia and a 1-0 win over Bandari last weekend.

In Nakuru, Ulinzi Stars lived up to character as the league's traditional slow starters when they racked up a third straight draw.

The soldiers were left frustrated by a resilient KRA who held them to a scoreless draw at Afraha Stadium. In contrast, KRA must be thanking their lucky star.

The taxmen have collected 4 priceless points from their first three matches in the top flight league.
