The first ever Kenyan Premier League match to be held at the famous Camp Toyoyo artificial turf in Jericho estate ended barren as the two protagonists, Sofapaka and Kakamega Homeboyz kept the crowd entertained but there was no goal excitement.
Hosts Sofapaka opted to play the match at the famous Grounds and it could have been a perfect choice had they converted a string of chances that came their way.
Visiting keeper David Juma was in inspired form for Homeboyz as he used all manner of reflexes in his books to keep his side in the game. The evergreen Moses 'Dube' Odhiambo was Sofapaka's most dangerous player but Juma was Homeboyz's savior and he must have felt he won the battle.
On the occasion when Juma was beaten by Odhiambo, fullback Athman Buki was on hand to make a goal line clearance during the early embers of the second half.
The two sides would share the point with Sofapaka third on 11 points and Homeboyz 5 points and 9 places adrift in 12th.
Muhoroni, Nakumatt Victorious
Meanwhile Muhoroni Youth moved off the bottom two with a stunning 2-0 win over Sony Sugar. Two first half goals from Robert Ouma and Bliss Kityo gave the hosts victory that steered them to 10th from 17th, level on 7 points with Sony Sugar.
