Migori Youth, Muranga Seal Share Spoils in FKF NSL Midweek Fixture

We earned a point at home after playing to a barren draw against Muranga Seal in yesterday's National Super League (NSL) tie.

In an encounter staged at home, we had a brilliant start to the match with an early chance on goal in the opening quarter hour through Felix Ochieng. The midfielder had a decent combination play with Mark Ochieng, but his volley went inches off the target.

At the half-hour mark, we had another chance on goal through Kevin Hagai. The forward collected John Mwita's low cutback pass, but his tapping lacked enough for an easier pick for Muranga Seals' keeper.

Five minutes later, the visitors had a real chance to break the deadlock when John Kiplangat, the veteran midfielder, hit a teasing volley that was goal bound, but Victor Kamongo's quick reaction saved the situation by punching the ball out for safety.

Five minutes before the break, the visitors threatened once again from a set piece on the left flank. Kiplangat turned the provider, finding Ocholla, but Kamongo quickly reacted, stretching to make an important touch on the ball for a corner kick that was firmly dealt with.

At the stroke of half time, we came close to taking the lead through Kevin Hagai. A long throw by Robert Ouma landed on Isaac Otieno, who flicked the ball to Hagai, but the forward's shot went straight into the keeper's arm.

At the hour mark, we had a close call on goal through Robert Ouma. The captain from the set piece curled beautifully but hit the tip of the post going out for a goal kick.

With a quarter of the game to go, the visitors attacked yet again, collecting a poorly cleared ball by Mwita, and came close to punishing us only to force Victor Kamongo to a full stretch to make a fingertip save.

Against the run of play, we had a perfect opportunity on goal from close range through Wycliff Omondi to win the match, but the defender's shot forced the visitors' back line to a goal line clearance as the two sides shared a point each.
