Tusker,Mathare play to a draw

Oct 23, 2010

Tusker and Mathare United settled to a scoreless draw in Friday's game played in driving rain at Nairobi's Nyayo National Stadium.

 The match that had been meant to be a 'dress rehearsal' for the Gor Mahia-AFC Leopards epic clash failed to leave to its high billing as the heavens opened up a few hours to kick off time. The pounding rain inevitably wrecked havoc on the flow of play.

 The first half of the game was akin to a skiing contest with players from both teams finding it hard to stay on their feet at Nyayo's slippery and rain-soaked turf. The results means that Tusker remains third on 46 points same as Gor Mahia who have a superior goal difference.

 Amazingly, this was the 18th drawn match for Mathare United who seem to have mastered the art of not losing without winning. The team remains sixthon the table with 36 points.
