Former Kenyan International Allan Wanga was the toast for Coach Paul Nkata as his side Kakamega Homeboyz rallied from a very early goal to tie the scores with visiting Zoo FC at the Bukhungu Stadium on Saturday 12th.
Zoo, having taken the lead through Newton Ondari in a matter of seconds after kick-off, saw their lead slip away when the former Tusker man fired home in the 35th minute- condemning the tie to a 1-1 scoreline.
The visitors had to morph into a defensive formation after going one up immediately after kick-off and the pressure from Homeboy's attacking duo of Wanga and Maxwell Ravel dully kept them in their defensive half. Luke Namanda, marauding the right flank, could have restored parity in the 20th minute but fluffed his lines, as Martin Elungat in goal for Zoo proving key.
David Odhiambo's breach, however, could not be contained as the youngster found Wanga with an inch-perfect pass in the 35th minute for the lanky forward to power home the equalizer.
The second half was evenly contested and despite Danson Chetambe getting his marching orders in injury time, Homeboyz could not capitalize on the numbers to bag all the spoils.
AFC Leopards 1-0 KCB FC
A the Afraha stadium, Kenyan Commercial Bank earned their first full share of spoils with 1-0 dispatching of AFC Leopards- a tie played from 4:15 pm. KCB took the lead with five minutes of the first half remaining through Kennedy Owino and held on.
This is a match that also saw another red card as Said Tsuma walked off for an early shower in injury time after his retaliation earned him a second booking.
