Ten-man Zoo FC climbed two places off the bottom after beating Vihiga United away in Mumias.
Bernard Odhiambo hit Vihiga with a deadly counter-attack to help his side move from the base.
Despite going a man down after Nicholas Kipkurui was sent off, the Kericho-based side clung to the lead to pick maximum points away at Mumias Sports Complex.
In the other match of the day, Bandari extended their dominance over Chemelil Sugar after the Dockers picked a sixth victory against the side following a 1-0 win.
Felly Mulumba converted from the spot to shoot Bandari to fourth on the log. Chemelil Sugar, on the other hand, are still looking for their first victory in six games.
The Millers have struggled both on and off the pitch that saw the club lose almost the entire first 11 due to accrued salaries owed to players.
