Leopards fight back for point

24 October 2011, 09:19 James Wokabi, Supersport

Nairiobi - FC Leopards came from two goals down to hold Mathare United to a 2-2 draw at Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday.

Andrew Tololwa and George Ochieng had given the slum boys a 2-0 halftime lead but goals by Jimmy Bageya and Mike Barasa saw Ingwe rescue a point and maintain their unbeaten run in the second leg.

For Mathare, it was an eerily similar feeling to last weekend when they surrendered a two goal lead to lose 3-2 to KCB as they continue their flirtation with relegation. The slum boys are now just six points above the cut line.

Things had started so well for the Mathare who went ahead on nine minutes when Tololwa rose unchallenged to head in a Kevin Kimani corner past Patrick Matasi.

The keeper was then at his best to keep out Geoffrey Shikanda’s flick off a Kimani frekick on 15 minutes as the 2008 champions dominated.

Having kept Leopards in the game, Matasi turned from hero to villain ten minutes from halftime when he misjudged Ochieng’s 55 yard freekick allowing the ball to sail over his head and into the back of the net.

Leopards then lost Salim Kinje to a groin injury with Bageya coming on to replace him and started the comeback on the hour mark forcing the ball home to reduce the arrears.

The home side could smell an equalizer and Barasa made it 2-2 by slotting in a penalty to complete a remarkable turnaround.
