It was a day of extreme action on Saturday November 18 as the season came to an end, with Western Stima being confirmed as the second team to be relegated despite a 1-0 win over Chemelil Sugar at the Chemelil Sports Complex.
Stima were hoping to notch a win and Thika to be beaten and seemed well on course after Wesley Kemboi's 62nd minute strike took the leading till the final whistle.
Luck was however not on their side as Shami Kibwana inspired Thika United to a 1-0 victory over Bandari FC at home with a beautiful fee kick that all but ensured their safety.
With both sides recording wins and tied on 38 points, Stima go down just by goal difference as they have -10 compared to Thika’s -9.
Mathare hold Posta
At the Camp Toyoyo, Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi was a happy man after seeing his side hold ten-man Posta Rangers to a 2-2 draw which saw them stay afloat.
Chris Ochiengvwas the man to open account for the Slum Boys just three minutes into the game, dispossessing Charles Odete the ball to head on and beat Patrick Matasi in goal.
Mathare then went 2-0 up in the 31st minute following Chrispin Oduor’s goal which took his goal tally of the season to eleven.
Posta however replied with a goal shortly before the interval, Joseph Mbugi successfully converting a penalty after John Nairuka had been fouled inside the danger area by keeper Mark Kioko.
Kennedy Agogo, being a substitute, salvaged atleast a point for the mailmen with barely eight minutes remaining on the clock, heading the ball home from Nairuka’s cross to force a 2-2 draw.
