Ambrose Sifuna strikes late to earn Sofapaka a point on the road.

Ambrose scored a late second-half goal to earn Batoto Ba Mungu a point on the road.

In a match staged at Bukhungu Stadium, we had the first call on goal five minutes into play through Roy Okal. The midfielder collected Kevin Okoth’s pass but directed it to Baby’s arm.

At the quarter hour, the hosts had their first chance on goal. Ali Bai and Elie Asieche combined upfront before the latter dummied Michael Karamor. The former Sofapaka striker tapped in on goal, but Kevin Omondi reacted by stretching wide to make an important block using his right foot.

Five minutes later, field captain Titus Achesa floated in a teasing ball into Homeboyz’s defense, finding David Nshimirimana, who brushed the ball to Ronack Otieno, but keeper Babu in goal for Homeboyz rushed in to collect the ball.

At the half-hour mark, we attacked yet again. Baron Oketch picked out Geoffrey Ojunga’s pass and dribbled past Robinson Kamura, but Homeboyz keeper Babu made a quick response to make an important block to deny the host from taking the lead.

Five minutes before break, a quick search by Brian Wepo found Maqbul Ocholla. The youngster dummied to Titus Achesa, but the captain blasted his effort wide with the keeper to beat.

Ten minutes after the restart, Brian Wepo delivered an inswinger that found Rody Manga, but the striker’s header slightly missed the target from close range.

Five minutes after the hour mark in the second half, substitute Lucky Musyoki picked up a loosely cleared ball by Ali Bai before going past Odhiambo and setting Ambrose Sifuna on goal. Sifuna beat Kamura from close range but placed too much power on his final attempt, which went wide.

With a quarter of time to play, the host took the lead through Ali Bai. The veteran midfielder went past Samuel Olwande before slotting past the advancing Kevin Omondi.

Against the run of play, substitute Alex Imbusia made a quick run into the Homeboyz defense before laying a cutback pass to Ambrose Sifuna, who made no mistake slotting past Babu for an important goal and point on the road.
