Kibera Black Stars was held to a 1-1 draw by Bidco United as St Joseph Youth edged out Modern Coast Rangers in FKF National Super League matches played on October 6, 2017.

Black Stars went ahead on the half-hour mark when Wilson Njuguna struck from the spot after he had been brought down by Bidco goalkeeper Mark Nyakundi. Bidco would, however, restore parity through John Walubuka in the 75th minute to ensure a share of the spoils.

Later on, at the same venue, Palos FC held FC Talanta to a 0-0 stalemate. St Joseph Youth also edged out Modern Coast Rangers 1-0 at the Mbaraki Sports Club, the club’s fourth win in five matches. St Joseph has since jumped out of the relegation zone.
