Sofapaka eclipse Finlays to earn Domestic Cup semis ticket

Sofapaka  on Sunday afternoon  cruised  to the  domestic Cup semi  finals  after edging out  Naivasha  based side Finlays 1-0   in a tight  contest played  under scotching heat at the  Nyayo  national stadium.

Veteran  war  horse John Baraza  scored the  all important  goal in the 70th minute to earn his side  the much sought after ticket  in   a fiercre  duel that was  contested from edge to edge

The  “ flower “ men gave god account of themselves proving their worth  as  to why they floored KCB and Bandari  as they stood  up to  Sofapaka  as the two sides  went head to head in all fronts Whereas Sofapaka  earned five corner kicks Finlays  had  four and  gave the Nairobi based side a hard fight confining them  to their own  half in  in the last quarter of the  game

In a bid to stem the tide Sofapaka coach Sam, Timbe pulled out Antony Kimani for Congolese Patrick “PetIt” Kagogo   as the visitors threatened to level matters but the   strong goalkeeping of   Duncan Ochieng   saved the day

The Batoto Ba Mungu now joins holders Gor Mahia and Sony sugar in the semis as AFC Leopards and Karuturi Sports battle for the remaining ticket.
