Wednesday October 11 was a day of draws as all three Kenyan Premier League (KPL) catch up matches ended in draws, with none of the six sides in action securing all three points.
Tusker v Kariobangi Sharks (Ruaraka Grounds)
Kariobangi Sharks recorded their third draw in four games after being held to a 0-0 stalemate by defending champions Tusker FC in a match played at the Ruaraka Grounds.
The Brewers commanded control of the proceedings in the opening quarter hour in a bid to ease their opponents' defense but were on a number of occasions forced to fall back by the counter attacking Sharks.
Humphrey Mieno almost took Tusker ahead in the 33rd minute but was greatly denied by the woodwork which bounced back to play his ferocious right-footed shot.
In the second half, Sharks coach William Muluya opted for an early change, bringing in the fresh legs of Michael Odongo in place of Patillah Omotto who seemed affected by Harambee Stars' long trip from Asia.
Elli Asieche was then brought off for Ebrima Sanneh shortly after, with George Nsimbe waiting until the 81st minute to haul off Brian Osumba and Noah Wafula for Stephen Owusu and rookie Sydney Ochieng.
Substitute Sanneh had a chance to bag his side maximum points in the 83rd minute but a firm and timely block by Eugene Asike denied him a goal. After the final whistle, bith sides had to contend with a point each.
Western Stima v Nakumatt (Moi Stadium)
At the Moi Stadium in Kisumu, substitute Boniface Akenga spared Nakumatt some blushes after his late strike ensured a 1-1 draw with hosts Western Stima.
Brian Marita had given Stima the lead in the 63rd minute, bolting to Geofrey Ochieng's pass to send past keeper Owade who had already made a couple of match-saving saves.
Boniface Akenga was then introduced in place of Robert Omunuk and gifted his side a point four minutes from time with his well calculated shot that ensured a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.
Zoo Kericho v Nzoia Sugar (Kericho Green Stadium)
Geoffrey Gichana once again came to the rescue of Zoo Kericho with his late goal that forced a 2-2 draw with Nzoia Sugar at the Kericho Green Stadium.
The hosts wasted a glorious chance to take the lead in the 25th minute after they were awarded a penalty following Steve Wakanya's reckless tackle on Nicholas Kipkirui. Mike Madoya stepped up to take the resultant spot kick but even with custodian Mustapha Oduor well beaten, his effort went off target much to the relief Nzoia's bench.
They paid the price just five minutes later, Lawrence Juma beating keeper Richard Omboko with a well-calculated free kick to take the visitors ahead.
The first half however ended in high intensity as Danson Namasaka restored parity for Zoo with a curling free kick just outside the box in the 43rd minute before Vincent Ngesa taking Nzoia back to the steering wheel with a header just two minutes later.
After a largely silent second half, Zoo Kericho coach Sammy Okoth introduced into the field Geoffrey Gichana who secured a point for his team with a late goal in the 88th minute.
