Muchuma aids Chemelil survival on final day as Stima, Leopards fire blanks

Western Stima Football Club and AFC Leopards played to a barren stalemate at the Moi Stadium in a round 34 Kenyan Premier League encounter staged from 2 pm- like every other match of the day.

The draw means Stima finishes 12th on the log while Leopards end the season placed 10th on the 18-team KPL table standings.

At the Chemelil Sports Complex, the sugar millers’ affair ended in favor of the hosts, who- after a 1-0 win over SoNy Sugar FC, evade finishing in the relegation play-off position.

After a barren stalemate in the first half, Philip Muchuma struck in the 69th minute, to an aroused gathering at the complex and home side pressed for even more thereafter.

The victory takes Francis Baraza’s men to 14th position on 34 points. Prior to the match, they had been occupying 16th position which is the relegation playoff position in the league.
