Kenya's Shujaa played to a 14-14 draw in their second match at the ongoing USA Sevens in Las Vegas on Saturday morning .

The Kenyan side  drawn in Pool C lost their opening fixture 24-7 to New Zealand  and will have an uphill task as they must win their final fixture against Russia at 1.12am on Sunday morning.

Against Argentina, Nelson Oyoo opened their account racing clear to touch down after being set up by Eden Agero who converted for a 7-0 lead but the Argentines landed two converted tries through 19 year old Mathias Oscadzuk to take a 14-7 lead into the breather.

The second half was balanced on a knife edge, Shujaa standing firm in the wake of incessant Argentine pressure before Collins Injera found his way to the try line, landing his 240th try on the World Series with Agero adding the extras to level the scores.

The final minute and a half saw Shujaa play with their tails up, Injera stealing in on the blind but his final delivery to Agero just bubbled away. 

Argentina, finding themselves in possession late on, elected to boot the ball out to touch and take the draw.
