Onyango fouled Stima’s youngster Benson Omala who was on his way to the danger zone, and the referee had no option but to dismiss him, sending the visiting fans into panic mode.
The defending champions and 18 time record winners of the Kenya Premier League looked inspired when Nicholas Kipkirui was sacrificed for Joachim Oluoch in the back four to stabilize their defense.
The league leaders opened the scoreline on the 47th minute with Clifton Miheso’s goal despite their numerical disadvantage.
A goal from Villa Oramchan 20 minutes later put the two sides at par, but he was also sent off the field 10 minutes to stoppage time.

Mahia has since dropped points, making Tusker close the gap on the league table to four points. Gor Mahia are top of the league table with 45 points, while Tusker have 41 points.
