Rongai All-Stars came from a goal down to force a 1-1 draw with RYSA FC in a mouth-watering Super 8 Premier League match played at Githogoro Grounds over the weekend.
Ali Hamisi netted the goal for RYSA in the early minutes of the match thorough a superb volley to give the hosts a 1-0 lead before the breather. After the break efforts by Rongai to level the playing ground finally bore fruits in the 60th after RYSA’s defence were caught sleeping paving way for Antony Makori to fire a thunderbolt that the keeper could not tame.
The hard-fought draw leaves the newly promoted RYSA placed at 11th on the 16-team log with 10 points from two wins and four draws.
RYSA coach Eliud Mathu blamed lack of utilising chances they created as the main cause of the draw.
“I have to commend the boys for the effort they put in, we had an upper hand because we created so many chances but we failed to convert most of them. It is now a concern we need to address as a team by working on our finishing,” said Mathu after the draw.
His opposite number Edwin Kubaso said the league is tough and they are looking forward from leaping from the bottom of the log where their lie with only seven points.
