The home side refused to continue after taking exception with the contentious leveller.
Protests from SoNy Stars players over a late Gor Mahia equaliser forced their Kenyan Premier League match to be abandoned in the 85th minute on Sunday.
Having taken the lead in the 20th minute courtesy of Moses Arita the home side looked on course to record a deserved victory at the Green Stadium until David “Calabar” Owino came to K’Ogalo’s rescue for the second week running by scoring with a stunning 40-yard strike.
But the Stars felt the ball didn’t cross the line after it ricocheted off the crossbar and appealed vehemently to the assistant referee, only for their lobbying to fall on deaf ears as the goal was awarded.
This prompted the hosts to defiantly refused to continue playing and, with no goal line technology to provide a definitive resolution, a stand-off ensued leaving the referee with no choice but to end the game with five minutes left on the clock, Star Africa report.
It could land the club in hot water with the KPL, who are expected to review footage of the Owino’s goal to determine whether the Stars’ decision to protest was the correct one and rule on the final result.
