10-man Posta Grab Dramatic Point at Ulinzi

Titus Achesa squeezed home a dramatic equalizer for Posta Rangers as their never-concede-we-are-beaten attitude secured them a point away to Ulinzi Stars despite goalkeeper Patrick Matasi being sent off in the first half.

The winger side-footed a pass from Luis Tera home despite James Saruni’s best efforts to keep it out to earn Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo’s side a point just when it looked like they would surrender a lead and Matasi’s silly red card prove costly.

A game played at breathtaking speed took a dramatic turn halfway into the first interval when Matasi was shown the worst of the reserve’s card for an unnecessary elbow on Soldiers’ forward Masita Masuta who was also dished with a yellow card for his part on the incident.

The referee also awarded Ulinzi a penalty, only to change his mind and give the away team a free kick inside their own penalty box.

The visitors however would grab a half time lead through pint-sized assassin Gerishon Likono.

Ulinzi however took charge of matters after the interval but were made to wait until after the 70th minute to register their name on the scoresheet as Cliff Kasuti nodded home from a free-kick.

Hassan Mohammed then grabbed his side the lead after sustained pressure on Posta’s backline but the home celebrations were cut short when Achesa made his presence known with a 90th minute equalizer. The shared point sees Ulinzi drop down a spot to 8th with 11 points, three better than Posta.
