Leopards win Western clash



Jonas Nahimana's brace guided AFC Leopards to their sixth win of the season as they came from behind to beat Western Stima 2-1 in an entertaining match played at Mumias Sports Complex on Saturday.

Fred Shimonyo’s perfectly curled freekick in the 20th minute left leopards keeper Patrick Matasi flatfooted to give Stima the lead.

Leopards dusted themselves up and pummelled Stima’s goal in search of an equaliser with Nahimana heading his first of the game two minutes from halftime.

The second half was a see saw affair as both teams looking for a winner but it was Leopards who had the last laugh as Allan Wanga was brought down in the box forcing referee Damaris Kimani to point to the spot.

Nahimana calmly slotted in the resultant penalty seven minutes from time to sounds of Isikuti drums and singing from their travelling fans.

Leopards stay top of the log for the seventh week with 17 points from seven matches.

"I am not happy with the officiating since Leopards did not deserve their second goal which was a wrong call by the referee," Stima coach Henry Omino told SuperSport.com.
