Homeboyz, KCB end it barren at the ASK Nakuru

Kakamega Homeboyz FC tested their newfound home ground, the Nakuru ASK Showground with a 0-0 draw against title-chasing Kenya Commercial Bank FC, a BetKing Premier League contest played from 3pm.

The visitors looked the more composed of the sides in the opening exchanges with Homeboyz happy to sit back. In the 6th minute though, the hosts were the first with a clear cut chance, Stephen Etyang arriving to head over the bar a David Okoth cross.

On the opposite end of the field, Derrick Otanga was comfortable winning the aerial duels and inviting the rest of his attack into play. The host defense, manned by George Odiwour and Kenya U23 international Sylvester Owino, worked in tandem to protect keeper Geoffrey Oputi.

The first verbal warning of the went to left-back Collins Odhiambo after and rough challenge on KCB’s David Owino. In the 41st minute, it would be captain of the day Moses Mudavadi earning the first yellow card after hacking down Baraka Badi, attempt aimed at thwarting a potential counter attack.

The two would end the opening 45 stalled at 0-0.

KCB were to take the lead with 15 of the second stanza played but Benjamin Oketch arrived just in time to clear Victor Omondi’s  shot off the line. 

Coach Nicholas Muyoti then threw in Allan Wanga for Etyang while the visitors threw in Curtis Wekesa. Wanga would have an almost immediate impact but being through on goal in the 67th minute wasn’t enough for the centre referee to not bring back play for an initial foul. Outcry would follow and George Odiwour’s eventually attempt on goal from the free-kick going off target. 

The two teams played out an entertaining final fifteen minutes of the game that at least deserved a goal. While Geoffrey Oputi stood tall in goal for the hosts. 

It would however have to end in a stalemate, and one not too beneficial for either team.
