Aswani, latched on a rebound from Nzoia Sugar keeper after skipper Peter Nzuki had unleased a rasping shot towards the goal in the 30th minute.
The hosts then struggled in search of an equalizer thereafter, with a number attempts which one bore fruit in the 55th minute courtesy of Boniface Omondi. He made use of Elvis Rupia’s pass in the danger-zone to beat Sammy Okinda in goal.
The rest of the match was a cagey show with both sides looking for a winner to no avail. Even the six minutes of added time did not break the deadlock.
