Gotv Shield: Kariobangi Sharks, SoNY Sugar qualifies into semis

Kariobangi Sharks and SoNY Sugar were the first teams to qualify into semi final match of Gotv Shield tournament following their wins on Saturday.

The Kenya Premier League (KPL) side shone over Eldoret Youth and Bandari respectively with all matches played at Nyayo National stadium

Newly promoted Kariobangi to the KPL, marshaled its forces to humiliate Eldoret Youth, which plays in Division One Zone B 5-0 in a one sided match

Sharks went ahead in the 15th minute through Masoud Juma, who finished off an earlier effort from Duke Abuya that had come off the palms of Eldoret goalkeeper Reagan Wanjala.

The second half was particularly daunting for the Eldoret-based team, as they conceded four goals in quick succession owing greatly to their haphazard defence.

Abuya found the goal mouth empty in the 58th minute and doubled the advantage for Sharks, and thence began a flurry of goals for which no response was realised from Eldoret Youth.

Juma easily outwitted his market must three minutes later and with only the goalkeeper to beat, got into position before placing the ball on the bottom right corner and with it completed a double.

Sven Yidah then added the fourth goal in the 80th minute when he outran his marker and shot past Eldoret goalkeeper Reagan Wanjala.

Ebrimma Sanneh put the last nail on the coffin with five minutes to go, thereby ending Eldoret Youth’s journey in this year’s domestic cup.

At the same venue, Sony Sugar presented an uncharacteristically classy performance away from their inconsistent league performance this season.
The sugar millers scored in the 14th minute when Mwana Yema scored from the rebound after Bandari goalkeeper Wilson Obungu had done everything to keep his earlier shot.

Eight minutes later, the Salim Babu-coached side earned a penalty after Felly Mulumba felled Yema inside the box, and Amos Asembeka successfully converted to double their advantage.

The Awendo-based team were awarded a second penalty in the 51st minute after Wilson Obungu tackled Yema unfairly inside the box, and Asembeka once again made no mistake in converting his spot kick.

Baron Oketch scored the consolation goal for the dockers in the 79th minute when he took advantage of misplaced Sony goalkeeper Kevin Omondi.

Second half substitute Jesse Obare was sent off in the 84th minute, forcing Sony to play with 10 men for the remaining duration of the game.
