28 games into Division One Zone B, Homa Bay County (HBC) Mlimani was the only team yet to pick all three points from a league game.
But finally, three points came by on Saturday 29 September 2012, in their 29thleague game after opponents Yanga from Nyahururu failed to leave their backyard for the game that had been scheduled for the Homa Bay Stadium.
Speaking to futaa.com earlier, Yanga chair sighted financial challenges as the reason why the team failed to travel for the Mlimani game and for a Sunday game against Zoo Kericho on Sunday.
Despite getting three new points, HBC Mlimani are still rock bottom at 20th with a new haul of six points, four within 19th placed Yanga. The team is 69 points off leaders Kakamega Homeboyz.
