Cheza Ukipenda were the first on the score sheet in the 58th minute through a strong and powerful header by Alex Libesi. The match was exciting and evenly balanced but Githurai were very strong on the left flank as Georgia based and former Gor Mahia player  Amos Nondi made defense unsettling passes that were always completed.

Githurai pressure paid off as in the 90th Raymond Fikirini was fouled strongly in the box. Amos Nondi took the high wire risk and converted the penalty. The match ended a minute later and the post-match penalties went in favor of Githurai as only one shot was blocked from all the shots.
