Kisumu All Stars tag back Tusker to secure a point as Gor Mahia survive Western Stima scare

Kisumu All Stars forced a 2-2 draw with Tusker FC in a Kenyan Premier match staged at Moi Stadium, Kisumu on Saturday 29th. 

This is the second consecutive match for Tusker to throw away the lead in the stoppage time as it happened last weekend when they conceded a late goal against Wazito FC. Michael Owino opened the scoring for the visitors before Luke Namanda leveled the scores just before half time. In the second half, super-sub Timothy Otieno put the Breweries ahead but Eric Otieno secured a point for Otenga from the spot. 

Tusker had their first chance as Christopher Ochieng swung the ball from the right side and Berry met it, made a brilliant control before unleashing a shot that was stopped by Gad. Minutes later, Robert Mboya was tested as Kisumu All Stars responded well through Steve Otieno who could not beat the Tusker keeper. 

In the 41st minute, Stars opened the scoring through Micheal Owino, who scored from open play despite Mboya appearing to have been fouled in his area. However, two minutes later, Luke Namanda leveled the scores forcing a draw in the first half. 

With four minutes remaining, Tusker went down to ten men after Ambunya suffered an injury forcing him out. Robert Matano had no one to bring in as he had already exhausted the substitutes. 

Substitutes Brian Marita and Timothy Otieno combined well to give Tusker the lead. Marita had the ball on the wing before delivering a searching pass to Otieno, who made no mistake by making it 2-1. The Breweries thought they had secured a win but Eric Otieno scored the leveler in the stoppage time to deny Robert Matano's men victory. 

Gor Mahia 3-2 Western Stima 

Elsewhere, in a match staged at MISC, Kasarani Gor Mahia finally managed to beat Western Stima. K'Ogalo had gone for three consecutive matches against Stima without a win but goals from Boniface Omondi, Kenneth Muguna, and Nicholas Kipkirui were enough to secure a win for the defending champions. 

Boniface Omondi gave Gor Mahia the lead in the second minute before captain Kenneth Muguna netted the second in the 11th minute. Three minutes later, Nicholas Kipkirui made it 3-0 for the Green Army, a goal that left Steven Polack's men in complete control of the match. 

Former Gor Mahia midfielder Baron Oketch pulled one back from the spot after Gor Mahia were penalized after Ochieng Omalla was brought. In the second half, Omalla reduced the deficit to one with the visitors chasing for a win but K'Ogalo held on to pick maximum points.
