Gor Mahia Youth and Kapenguria Heroes are set to face off in the final of the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Youth tournament after wins over Mukumu Boys and Ombek Red Devils respectively in the semifinals

Kapenguria Heroes needed post-match penalties to dump Ombek Red Devils out of the tourney. The Rift Valley Champions had come from behind to hold their Nyanza counterparts to a 2-2 draw in regulation time.

Gor Mahia Youth, on the other hand, dispatched Mukumu Boys 3-1 in the first semifinal of the day. Goals by Selassie Otieno, Tony Kegode, and Peter Kamau rendered Leonard Kasembeli’s 49th-minute equalizer a mere consolation.
