On resumption coach Dylan Kerr made two quick substitution bringing on Mustafa and Boniface Omondi in abid to strengthen their attack upfront in search for the equalizer but barely could they have a touch on the ball ,Ulinzi Stars got the second goal of the day through Nadwa after a well calculated move.
