Kenyan Premier League sides Tusker and Sofapaka FC are through to the quarterfinals of the FKF SportPesa Shield following wins over Bungoma Super Stars and Western Stima respectively on Sunday, July 22, 2018, at the Narok Stadium.
Also through to the quarters is Ulinzi Stars, who edged out Vihiga United 2-1 at the Mumias Sports Complex courtesy of a goal apiece by Elvis Nandwa and Oscar Wamalwa. Dennis Wafula scored the hosts’ consolation.
A 73rd-minute goal by Peter Nzuki was all Tusker needed to go past Bungoma Super Stars in the first match of the Narok doubleheader.
Sofapaka, meanwhile, brushed aside NSL bigwigs Western Stima in the other match played at the same venue. An own goal by Junior Mukisa, coupled with a goal apiece by Brian Magonya, Elli Asieche and Stephen Waruru were enough to see the KPL side book Tusker in the quarterfinals.
Two more matches will be played on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, at the MISC Kasarani to round up action in the round of 16.
Defending champions AFC Leopards will face off with Division One side Mwatate United in the first match set to kick off at 2 pm before KPL sides Gor Mahia and Posta Rangers square it out at 4.15 pm. Both matches will be aired LIVE on Y254 TV.
