Ugandan import Umaru Kasumba should have put Sofapaka ahead in the 8th minute but delivered his shot wide after beating Muhoroni Youth defenders to a loose ball inside the dangerzone.

Okare came in for Movren Otinya and registered his name on the score sheet with his second touch of the ball, to give Sofapaka the lead but Muhoroni, whose stadium ban was lifted on Friday, found the equalizer after Kityo scored in the 80th minute.

The draw leaves Sofapaka 7th on the log even as Muhoroni Youth continues to search for a maiden win away from home. But Muhoroni should also thank their keeper Salim Sowedi for keeping them in the game especially in the first half.
