Kakamega Homeboyz struck a stoppage time equalizer to force a 2-2 draw with Ulinzi Stars in a pulsating Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on Sunday.
Peter Thiong’o’s late header capped a frenetic finish to a match that produced a flurry of late chances for both sides.
Ulinzi’s midfielder John Njuguna will especially blame himself for squandering a late chance to put his side 3-1 up, wasting a rebound after he had done well to get himself to get into position to collect goalkeeper Gabriel Andika’s spilled save.
That would have taken the game beyond the visitors who had another late effort from Thiong’o kept out by Jacktone Odhiambo with a stunning save.
Defender Festus Okiring produced an instinctive goal-line clearance that kept the game within Homeboyz’ reach, hacking the ball away to safety after Njuguna had beaten Andika with a headed effort.
Stephen Wakanya had put Homeboyz ahead when he turned home a header but that lead only lasted 10 minutes with Enosh Ochieng providing the reply for the hosts.
John Kago then scored what looked like the match-winner five minutes into the restart but Thiong’o had the last say with the result leaving Homeboyz third on the standings and Ulinzi just two places below.
In Kasarani, Posta Rangers scored twice in the closing six minutes to hold Kariobangi Sharks to a 3-3 stalemate. Sydney Lokale scored the opener for Sharks and James Mazembe hit a double with Francis Nambute on target for the visitors.
At Sudi Stadium, Western Stima continued their KPL revival with a 3-1 win over Nzoia Sugar and Enock Agwanda and Simon Munala fired KCB to a 2-1 vitory over Wazito FC who had Bernard Ochieng sent off in the second half.
KCB FC 2-1 Wazito
Nzoia United 1-3 Western Stima FC
Ulinzi Stars 2-2 Kakamega Homeboyz
Kariobangi Sharks FC 3-3 Posta Rangers
