The Kenyan scored the opener in the 28th minute before Spaniard Juan Manuel equalized for Omiya Ardija in the 66th minute. Kashiwa Reysol have picked up just a win in five matches and sit in sixth position with only four points separating them from leaders Mito Holly Hock.

He had last scored on May 12 when Kashiwa Reysol picked up a 1-0 win over Tokushima Vortis.
