Sharkmen were earlier today held to a 2-2 draw by Wazito in an entertaining end to end clash held at Kasarani Annex.

First half turnaround

Wazito announced themselves as early as the fourth minute when Kinyanjui wriggled his way on the left channel to loft in a well weighted ball which found Curtis Wekesa to head into an empty net for Wazito’s opener.

The lads responded in the 13th minute when Workhorse Douglas Mokaya dispossessed Amos Asembeka in his own half to release Geoffrey Onyango on the left who produced his trademark whip to find a well positioned Erick Mata for the tap in.

Wazito were at it again when Rooney Onyango rattled the crossbar in the 24th minute an action which triggered the Shark once again to raise the tempo a notch higher by resilient pressing which paid off after Wasambo piled pressure on Lewin to miscalculate his pass only to find Erick Mata who committed the Wazito defence and laid a neat ball on the path of youngster Geoffrey Onyango whon didn’t need an extra touch to slice the ball past Bashir Ssekagya putting The Sharks in the driving seat.

The second half 

Isaac Wasambo was booked early the 53rd minute after playing the ball when play had been stopped and Frederick Alushula also followed suit 2 minutes later.
