AFC Leopards got their 2018 FKF SportPesa Shield campaign underway with a 2-1 win over FKF Division One League side Shabana FC in a match played on Saturday, June 2, 2018, at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu.
Ezekiel Odera atoned for a missed penalty early in the match to feed National U20 team midfielder Marvin Omondi for Ingwe’s opener for a 1-0 first-half lead.
Upon resumption, Shabana would restore parity through Oscar Oketch but it is the guests who had the last laugh with Marvin Omondi’s brace at the death securing a round of 32 place for the Leopards.
