Kogalo came from behind to tie the KPL defending champions Sofapaka 1-1. The latter had taken an early lead when last season’s leading scorer John Baraza scored from what seemed like an offside position.
Gor Mahia fought back and eventually leveled the score via another penalty scored by captain Julius Owino. The penalty arose after substitute Francis Ocholla had been felled by the Sofapaka keeper.
A tie was quite an achievement for the youthful Kogalo outfit considering that they were up against a side that has a half dozen internationals.
