The Mombasa Stars drew 1-1 with the Kibera Black Stars on Saturday at Serani Sports Ground in their last National Super League (NSL) home match of the season.

 Mombasa Stars opened the score in the first half with a penalty kick by Alfred Manigi.

However, the lead was short-lived, as the Kibera Black Stars were also awarded a penalty, which Richard Bolo scored.

The referee’s decision to award the penalty sparked anger from the Mombasa Stars’ side, with Head Coach Mohammed Hussein ‘Madaga’ openly criticizing the referee’s decision.

“I expected a win for my team. The referee gave our opponents an undeserving penalty just to balance the game. It was a decision that cost us the three points we needed,” the Coach said.

For his part, Kibera Black Stars’ coach, Edwin Lavatsa, expressed his frustration over his players' missed opportunities. Despite the equalizer, Lavatsa felt his team could have secured a victory through their performance.

“We created several chances but failed to convert them into goals. I feel like we lost two points today because we could not capitalise on our opportunities.”

After the draw, Kibera Black Stars and Mombasa Stars are in the ninth and tenth positions, respectively.

Mombasa Stars now have three successive away games in the NSL league.
