Harambee Stars stretched their unbeaten run under head coach Stanely Okumbi to 11 matches as they battled to a barren stalemate against visiting Malawi Flames at the Machakos Stadium, Tuesday afternoon.

Stars, using the match as part of preparation for the 11 January - 2 February, 2018 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) which they'll host, did OK in a team which was made up of locally-based players only.

The visitors enjoyed a lion share of the possession in both halves but didn’t trouble the Kenyan backline with it although the home fans felt uncomfortable with the dominance if the jeers on the stands were anything to go by.

As far as the opening half was concerned, Malawi were the better side on the ball as they found spaces to operate, especially during the early minutes where Kenya hardly had a kick. However, it was the hosts who got sight of goal as both Simon Mbugua and Kennedy Otieno aimed feebly at visiting keeper Ernest Kakhobwe who easily gathered.

Centerhalves Jockins Atudo and Robinson Kamura then almost produced Kenya’s opener with the AFC Leopards man’s freekick at the far post finding the Posta Rangers captain whose header went just wide, but he was already offside.

Samuel Onyango, an established figure in the Harambee Stars set up now, had the game’s first clear chance when, unmarked, he let fly from outside the area but missed target by a foot. Malawi created their first chance a minute later with Gilbert Chirwa also directing his header off the target.

Cavin Odongo missed the best chance of the half as he skied with only one man, and the keeper to beat, having benefited from a back pass gone wrong.

The only other notable events of an even half was Onyango’s booking after tripping his marker and the substitution of Darius Msagha whose national team debut was ended with Dan Mwaura replacing the Bandari man.

The second half chances came as fast as they were wasted. Matasi was called to action 10 minutes after the restart as he parried Simeon Singa’s left-footed drive. Onyango almost got the opener immediately but his scuffed effort missed the target by a hair’s breadth while Otieno had an effort cleared off the line.

The first of a flurry of substitutions saw Amos Asembeka replace Cavin Odongo while Brian Birgen replaced an injured Simon Mbugua. Morven Otinya, and Chrispinus Onyango all got a taste of the action but none of them came close to giving Kenya the advantage.

Malawi especially looked dangerous following the introduction of youngster Dalitso Sallesi who created two chances for his number 9 Muhammad Sulumba who couldn't get past an effective but under-employed Matasi.

The latest draw makes it six in total for Okumbi in the 11 matches, the other five ending in victories.

GFE 105 reclaimed top spot in the National Super League (NSL) despite failing to win for a second game running following a barren draw against Bidco United.

The league debutants faced Bidco at Thika Stadium at the back of a 1-0 defeat to KCB and they were shut out once again by the former Kenyan Premier League side who were playing only their third match of the season. It was an even contest as the scoreline suggests but the point shared was enough for GFE to go top on 13 points, same as Wazito who have an inferior goal difference and have played a game more.

Wazito also finished the weekend with a point after a one-all draw against Ushuru FC at the Karuturi Grounds. A Victor Ochieng goal in the 13th minute gave Ushuru the advantage but Austine Ochieng ensured the spoils with shared with a second half goal.

Meanwhile league debutants Isibania picked their maiden win, edging St. Joseph 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller in Nakuru.

Other results saw Kenya Police draw 0-0 with Nairobi City Stars while KCB ended FC Talanta’s three-game winning run with a 2-0 victory, Brian Yator helping himself to a brace.

Administration Police moved level on points with Modern Coast Rangers who they beat 1-0 courtesy of a Kalvin Osumba second half goal while debutants Kibera Black Stars fought to a barren draw against Palos at the Camp Toyoyo grounds.

Agro Chemicals were beaten 2-1 by visiting Vihiga United at the Chemelil Grounds while Nakuru All Stars thumped bottom of the log MOSCA 4-1 at the Afraha Stadium.

With all but KCB having played at least five games, MOSCA, Kibera Black Stars, and Agro Chemicals are the sides yet to pick three points.

The league continues this weekend.

AFC Leopards made the perfect response to last weekend's defeat to bogey side Chemelil Sugar by expertly putting aside Muhoroni Youth in their round five Kenyan Premier League clash at the Mbaraki Stadium, Sunday evening.

Dancing Rasta Allan Kateregga netted the solitary goal for Ingwe in the opening half. Yvonne Isuzza was the architect as he threaded the ball towards Gilbert Fiamenyo whose cross found Kateregga's head and the Ugandan did the rest for his second goal of the season.

Leopards were barely threatened by Muhoroni who shared the disadvantage of having to travel so far but it was Ingwe who made the most of the ordessy, collecting their third win of the new campaign.

The three points may come at a cost though as midfielder Andrew Tololwa came off injured late in the game with Harun Nyakha taking his position.

The victory puts Leopards fourth, level on 10 points with second-placed Bandari and Sofapaka in third. Gor Mahia, 2-1 winners over Sony Sugar lead the log on 12 after round 5.

In other matches, Sofapaka thumped winless and pointless Zoo Kericho 3-0 with Ezekiel Okare opening the scoring and Paul Odhiambo finishing off matters with a well taken double at the Kericho Green Stadium.

In Mumias, new boys Nzoia United edged Kakamega Homeboyz 2-1. After Lawrence Juma cancelled Charles Momanyi's opener for Homeboyz, former Leopards fullback Edwin Wafula scored a second half winner for Nzoia, his second of the season after slotting home a penalty in the shocking 5-2 defeat of Tusker on matchday 1.

Chemelil Sugar condemned AFC Leopards to their first loss of the 2017 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season with a 2-0 win at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu. 

John Mwita and Hillary Echesa scored the goals that ensured Ingwe remained winless against Chemelil for the third season running.

The first half was a cagey affair with Ingwe’s Ghanaian import Gilbert Fiamenyo having the  best chance of the half only to be denied by Jairus Adira's solid stop.

The hosts, who won this correspondending fixture 1-0 last season, took the lead three minutes into the second half when Mwita headed home from a corner before Echesa capitalized on a defensive lapse to poke home the second in the 67th minute of the game. 

Not even the introduction of Andrew Tololwa, youngster Harun Nyakha and Yakubu Ramadhan sent on in place of Marcus Abwao Marcellus Ingotsi and Dennis Sikhayi changed the tide as the Millers enjoyed junks of possession, toying the visitors around. 

Ingwe, now with only one win in 17 meetings against Chemelil, will now lick wounds back to Nairobi and prepare for their Easter clash against Muhoroni Youth in Mombasa.

Meddie Kagere was Gor Mahia's match-winner for a second game running as he once again netted the winning goal as the record Kenyan Premier League champions extended their lead at the top of the log following a 2-1 victory over Sony Sugar at the Moi Stadium, Kisumu on Saturday afternoon.

The Rwandese international was the man to turn to the previous matchday as Kogalo edged Kakamega Homeboyz and he repeated the exploit against Sony.

Ernest Wendo, popular for crunching tackles in midfield rather than goalscoring exploits, grabbed the game's and Kogalo's opener midway into the opening half with an unstoppable effort from outside the area.

However, the hosts ensured parity before the interval as former Bandari FC striker George Abege dribbled past a couple of half-hearted challenges from the Gor Mahia defence before rounding keeper Boniface Oluoch and planting the ball at the back of an empty net.

It took José Marcelo's men just three minutes into the second half to pull ahead once again. Kagere, who netted from the substitutes bench last time out, made his presence from the off well felt when he netted Gor Mahia's second and the eventual match winner after being fed by Kenneth Muguna.

The unfolding events saw Sony boss Salim Babu turn to his bench for reinforcements and Ze Maria responded with the likes of John Ndirangu, George Odhiambo and later on Philemon Otieno enjoying some second half minutes.

There won't be any more goals to celebrate for either sides though as Kogalo confirmed three more points in their board to move to 12 points out of a possible 15.

Tusker, Ulinzi Draw

In another match, Ulinzi Stars drew with reigning champions Tusker FC at the Afraha Stadium, Nakuru. It was a game of substitutes as Stephen Waruru came off the bench to hand Ulinzi a second half lead, only for his and the Soldiers' celebrations to be cut short by Abdul Hassan who earned Tusker a point with a late equalizer.

It was the second match running the two sides have drawn, the Soldiers having held AFC Leopards to a barren stalemate while Tusker also battled to a 2-2 draw away to Sofapaka.

After four attempts, Kariobangi Sharks have finally found that elusive win after they dismantled a much-fancied Nzoia Sugar 2-0 at Sudi Stadium to move to 17th on the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) log. 

Bolton Omwenga scored from a freekick in the first half before Kenyan international Patillah Omotto opened his 2017 account with a sublime finish in the 67th minute to ensure that the visitors went home with all the points. 

In Thika, 2009 champions Sofapaka played to a 2-2 draw with defending champions Tusker in a pulsating affair that could have gone either way. 

Pate Wanock put Batoto ba Mungu in the driving seat inside 30 seconds of kickoff, to score the Premier League’s fastest goal of the season.

Tusker upped their game with all their last season’s top scorers getting on the scoresheet. Michael Khamati, earning a rare start in the side, scored in the 20th minute to restore parity and that was followed by Allan Wanga’s brilliant finish.

Veteran midfielder Moses Odhiambo cancelled Tusker’s lead to ensure that each went home with a point. 

Elsewhere in Nakuru, Posta Rangers moved second on the table after beating Western Stima 1-0 in the early kick off played at the Afraha Stadium Nakuru.

Geoffrey Kataka scored the all important goal for Sammy Omollo ‘Pamzo’s’ mailmen.
