Sofapaka were the biggest winners of the weekend after beating 10 man Nzoia Sugar 3-1 to move out of the bottom position.
Attacker Fiston Abdul Razak netted a brace against the sugar millers with former Bandari man Dairus Msagha also on target. Sofapaka, who are clouded with financial constraints, travelled for the game with a lean squad as some players are on strike due to unpaid salaries running to over six months.
Nzoia Sugar custodian Benson Mangala was given his marching orders in the 81st minute.
The victory moved the 2009 champions, who only had one player on the bench, to position 15 on 11 points, same as Shabana who have a superior goal difference. Leopards could leapfrog them with a draw against Tusker.
