    Kakamega Homeboyz was up against Division Two side Naivas, the Premier League side emerging 1-0 victors.

Naivas however withered in the second half, eventually falling to a 63rd minute Lamine Diallo header. Homeboyz held on to the slim lead to proceed to the next round. The match was played at the Camp Toyoyo grounds

Tandaza were reduced to ten men when Bryan Oriedi was sent off for a second bookable offence but managed a late equalizer through captain Joseph Oketch. In post-match penalties, Zetech scored seven and missed three while Tandaza scores six and missed four

    Palos also got through to the next round at the expense of Division One Side Griffin with the match ending 5-1. Mike Owino, Alex Waiswa and Job Omuse, and a brace by Suleiman Manjenga were enough to see the National Super League side through.
