Nyakeya stars in Sofapaka stalemate
Cliff Nyakeya scored a brace as Mathare United twice rallied from behind to hold Sofapaka to a 2-2 draw at Kenyatta Stadium on Sunday.
Umaru Kasumba opened the scoring in the 47th minute after controlling a lobbed pass from Elli Asieche and slotting past Allan Owiny. Then Nyakeya leveled six minutes later to complete a brilliant team move that saw Chrispin Oduor tee him up for a shot.
Kasumba completed his brace on 58 minutes after beating the offside trap to latch onto a through pass from Waruru, raced towards goal, skipped past Owiny and slotted into an empty net.
Again, Oduor was the provider for Nyakeya. The Mathare United skipper found Nyakeya with a cutback and the youngster did not disappoint thumping home to restore parity.
The draw leaves us fifth with 40 points.
