KCB came from a goal down to squeeze a point against Kariobangi Sharks in a lively one-all draw on Sunday.
Kariobangi Sharks thought they were headed for a third win of the season after going ahead, but Benson Amianda spoilt the party as KCB pulled a miraculous second-half comeback.
Sensing KCB’s intention for an early goal, Sharks sat deep into their half as they absorbed the pressure. Only Harrison Mwendwa had the courage to move with the ball inside KCB’s box, but a tall defence blacked him in two subsequent occasions.
Two clear chances went begging in either half within a span of one minute; Sydney Lokale was too slow to reach Mwendwa’s pass inside KCB box. Sharks broke loose after sluggish KCB defenders failed to pull the trigger despite penetrating inside the opponent’s six-yard box.
Vincent Wasambu broke the deadlock with a delightful goal in the 49th minute. Martin Nderitu had a perfect chance to draw his side level just a minute later but his left-shot parachuted in the skies.
Amianda leveled the scores after Kennedy Owino did the donkey work as the Bankers pulled off a miraculous comeback in the 73rd minute.
