AFC Leopards continued with their impressive run in the Kenyan Premier league registering their fifth win in the league and 20th unbeaten match since last season.
The Leopoards beat Western Stima at their Mumias backyard and stretched their lead at the summit of the KPL table to 17 points from seven matches.
Leopards have had a great stint with coach Jan Koops and have only conceded two goals so far and seven in their last 20 matches.
The performance is a motivated one putting in mid the kind of support the team is give.
For every win, every player on the team sheet gets 10,000 shillings apart from the award given by their chairman Alex Ole Magelo. Their sponsors, Mumias Sugar also ensure that the players’ salaries are paid in time and direct to their bank accounts.
Leopards last week also launched an insurance sponsorship from AAR which will see all players’s inpatient and outpatient medical bills well covered.
Ingwe will next be meeting KCB on Wednesday night at the Nyayo National Stadium.
In other KPL matches played over the weekend, Rangers FC went down to the biggest defeat of the season, losing 0-6 to visitors Thika United, with Kepha Aswani scoring four times. Gor Mahia again failed to taste victory, holding Sny Sugar to a barren draw in Nakuru. Tusker fc failed to beat KCB with the match ending 0-0 with Mathare Uited getting their first win after a 1-0 triumph over City Stars.
Chemelil Sugar beat Oserian 1-0 to move to third on the log while Karuturi lost 2-1 away to league debutants Muhoroni Youth.
