Chemelil down soldiers Ulinzi as Sofapaka held at Nzoia

Chemelil Sugar ended Ulinzi Stars’ four-match winning streak as Kakamega Homeboyz held Bandari to a barren draw in Mombasa and Nzoia Sugar hold their own against former champions Sofapaka in Saturday’s matches.

Jacob Keli's goal drought persisted in this match as hosts Bandari struggled to make any impression on visiting Homeboyz.

Wycliffe Ochomo squandered several chances for Kakamega Homeboyz, and he knows, for a player of his caliber, he could have done better in the 36th minute but dithered.

He was withdrawn immediately after the second half for Lamine Dialo.

Bandari have now gone fur straight matches without a win. Small wonder, the partisan crowd at Mbaraki turned unruly at one time demanding changes to the fielding.
