It was a dramatic and heart breaking moment for the traveling fans as Fred Amaku struck late in the second half to rescue a deserved point for Kirinya JSS.

SC Villa dominated the first half but all their efforts yielded zero results.

They returned a much reinvigorated unit in the second half with a string of attacks right.

In form striker George Senkaba calmed down the pressure off the table leaders with a superb header off a Godfrey Lwesibawa trademark cross in the 48th minute.

Moments later, head coach Wasswa Bbosa made his first substitution by withdrawing the goal creator Lwesibawa for Alex Kitata.

Kirinya Jinja S.S pressed more for an equalizer but Samson Kirya stood up whenever he was called upon to preserve the lead.

Villa restored to a more defensive approach, Dudu Ramathan was also introduced on for the goal scorer George Senkaba to inject more energy.

The hosts who have only lost one game at home did not easly give in and their persistence was repaid in the 92nd minute when Fred Amaku met a delightful pass in the area to slot home the equalizer.

The result moves Kirinya Jinja S.S to 18 points and a place upfront to 10th displacing BUL. The Jogoos have succumbed to their 4th draw of the season and they go into the mid season break with their lead reduced by 2 points.
