Bandari switched off the power men after striker Wycliffe Ochomo put the Dockers on the driving seat in the opening minute. The former Kakamega Homeboyz forward, put the home side into the lead with a first-minute cracker.
The visitors almost caught Bernard Mwalala men napping but Congolese defender Felly Mulumba did well to stop the dangerous counter-attack by Western Stima at the half-hour mark.
Bandari continued to pile pressure on the visitor but a tactical Western Stima defense’s soaked up the weight. Stima retreated to their backline, pilling a brick-wall behind the ball and the plan worked as they kept the shoreline 1-1 at the break.
Bandari thought that they had retaken the lead but Ochomo was waved down. Ochomo pounced on a Wilberforce Lugogo’s shot but the flag was already up.
The draw means that Bandari dropped further down to fourth place with seven points.
