KCB and Kariobangi Sharks both booked places in the semifinals of the SportPesa Shield following wins over Bidco United and Bungoma Superstars in the quarterfinals played on Sunday, April 21, 2019, at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

This comes a day after Bandari and SS Assad also booked places in the semis with wins over Western Stima and Congo Boys respectively in the quarters played on Saturday at the Mbaraki Sports Club.

A goal apiece by Michael Kibwage, Bolton Omwenga, Victor Omondi, and Kennedy Owino saw KCB stroll to a 4-1 win. Dinken Mwema scored Bidco United’s consolation.

Kariobangi Sharks, meanwhile, had to do it in post-match penalties after playing out a 1-1 draw in regulation time with Division One League side Bungoma Superstars.

Iddi Wasike had given the giant killers a 78th minute lead, one they couldn’t see out, with Eric Kapaito salvaging a penalty shootout with a goal in stoppage time for Sharks.
