Zoo Kericho overpowered Western Stima on Sunday to register their second win of the season

The newly promoted side Zoo Kericho won their second match of the 2017 Kenyan Premier League season by beating Western Stima at Kisumu’s Moi Stadium on Sunday.

Coming from a win against Ulinzi Stars last week, the Sammy Okoth coached outfit overcame the hosts on 2-0 margin to move away from relegation zone.

Bernard Odhiambo and Mike Madoya scored in the first-half and second-half respectively to grab all three points against the Henry Omino coached team, which has now dropped to the basement of the log.

Elsewhere, Ulinzi Stars moved from a 2-1 defeat against Zoo Kericho to beat hosts Thika United 3-2 in a league match played at Thika Sub-county Stadium.
