The first scoring opportunity in the game fell to IUIU’s Chemutai but his effort was saved by the KIU custodian Opio Moses in the early minutes of the game.

The hosts IUIU dominated play in the first stanza of the game but failed to put the ball behind the net.Opio organized his backline with a commanding effort as he went on to make a couple of saves.

In the second half of the game,  Ramathan Musema had a golden opportunity to put the hosts ahead when he found his way through the KIU defense but his shot went over the cross bar.

Opio was so vital for a point as he committed himself to a couple of saves from the high attacking IUIU forwards as we came to the end of the game. He also received a yellow card for time wasting.
