AFC Leopards continued with their cinderella run in the Kenyan Premier
League electrocuting a determined Western Stima 2-1, on Saturday 24 March, at
Mumias Sports Complex.
Stima started brightly with Ali Bai troubling
Ingwe defense on numerous occasion.
In the 28th minute Bai's efforts were rewarded
winning a penalty that was converted by Fredrick Shimonyo to put the Power-men in the driving seat
after Patrick Matasi fouled him in the area.
Three minutes to the break, Rwandese international Jonas Paco Nahimana
brought down the Stadium with his sterling header from Salim Kinje’s free-kick
to make the score 1-1.
AFC could have extended the lead in the 55th minute but Bernard
Mang’oli’s long range shot went wide.

Nahimana was again on the mark this time scoring from the spot
to give Ingwe their fifth win of the season, after Allan
Wanga was dropped in the box by Stima defender Robert Kwaye.
With this win, AFC have now extended their lead on the top of the table to three points over second placed Sofapaka who face Ulinzi Stars on Monday 26 March.
