Thika United and Gor Mahia shared spoils in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match played at the City Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
Gor Mahia started the match on attacking mode and could have taken the lead in the sixth minute. Kevin Omondi and Patrick Oboya exchanged neat passes, the latter finding the on-running Godfrey Walusimbi with a good pass. The Ugandan dropped in a perfectly weighted pass but Thika United custodian Hamza Muwonge reacted fast to avert the danger.
The hardworking Walusimbi made another good run down the left flank in the tenth minute and floated in a cross but Simon Mbugua cleared the danger.
Thika United chance came in the 16th minute. John Nairuka brought in a good cross from the right but David Juma did well by rising high to pick the ball.
Gor Mahia could have taken the lead in the 34th minute but Shaban Kenga shot from inside the box after an incisive pass from Oboya.
Moses Arita replaced David Kingatua after the restart in an obvious attempt by Thika United to sharpen their attack. However, Vincent Omubo handled the ball in the box few minutes late, Gor winning a penalty.
Sserenkuma stepped up to take it but his hard shot was parried away for a corner by Hamza Muwonge.
