A late goal by Harambee Stars U20 forward Abraham Dawo was enough to see Kenya Police snatch a point from their match against Kibera Black Stars at Camp Toyoyo.

In a match that was temporarily paused due to bad weather, Kibera Black Stars took a first-half lead through Wilson Njuguna after dominating proceedings for the better part of the first half. They were however guilty of missed chances, having twice hit the woodwork.

They would later pay for their mistakes when substitute Abraham Dawo rose highest to head in a set piece from the left flank late in the second half.

The guests had taken an early lead through Nahashon Waweru. Stephen Owusu would, however, restore parity for Stima, before Alex Luganji made matters 2-1 at the stroke of halftime.

Abdalla Mdeka netted an equalizer in the second half to ensure Modern Coast travels back home with a share of the spoils.

At the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru, KCB played out a barren stalemate with hosts St Joseph Youth. The latter, as well as Kenya Police, are the only sides yet to taste defeat this season.
