Patrick Otieno scored a late penalty to help Nzoia Sugar earn a 2-2 draw against Bandari in a KPL match played at Sudi Stadium Wednesday afternoon as the league campaign came to a close.
Wilberforce Lugogo opened the scoring for Bandari with a well taken free kick to send keeper Humphrey Katasi the wrong way.
Darius Msagha doubled the lead four minutes after the breather, heading home a fine cross from David King’atua.
James Kibande pulled one back with 13 minutes to play, making the tie open for the home side who came in knocking, looking for the equaliser.
In dramatic circumstances, Nzoia Sugar were awarded a penalty amidst protests from Bandari technical bench but the call stood and Otieno stepped up sending Mustafa Odour the wrong way.
The hosts had the first real chance in the fourth minute, a corner swung neatly but Dan Guya cleared the lines.
Bandari coach Bernard Mwalala was dealt with a major blow in the 61st minute ahead of the Shield Cup final, as Michael Wanyika went down injured forcing a substitution, in his place came Mustapha Oduor.
Darius Msagha was later substituted, new signing Ahmed Ahmed, appearing for the first time since joining the dockers from Mathare United in the January transfer window, taking his place.
Mwalala made wholesale changes to his squad with an eye on the Shield Cup final on Saturday as the coastal based side finished the season as runners up for the second year running.
