KAGERA Regional soccer champions -Eleven Stars FC - were on Thursday forced to a 1-1 draw by Dar City FC from Ilala, in the ongoing Zonal Third Division League held at the Kahama ground in Shinyanga.
Striker Steven Abdallah opened the score for Eleven Stars in the 7th minute, basting home with an angle shot.
