A 1000 and Mamba advance to Kothbiro Quarters

A 1000 street knocked out Young Rovers from the 2015 annual Kothbiro football tournament. After an all draw stalemate during normal time, Young Rovers Kennedy Otieno missed his shot in the post match penalties as everyone else scored to hand A1000, the defending champions, a ticket to the quarter finals.

In another match, Mamba fc also advanced to the quarter finals after beating Flats Tornadoes by a solitary goal. The goal was scored by Elias Otieno who excellently converted a penalty in the 60 minute.

In the last match of the day, a resilient Umeme Bees were beaten by Puiretto in post match penalties after a one all draw during regulation time. Puiretto were the first on the score sheet through a screamer by Victor Ayugi in the 16 minute. The strike from 20 yards caught the Bees defense and keeper unaware as it rested at the back of the net. The Bees were the better team throughout the match as they wowed the thousands of fans with their great individual and team work skills.

Their persistence paid off as Puiretto crashed under pressure and the Bees talismanic midfielder Misiko Was brought down hard in the penalty area. Evans Mieno picked up the honors and scored an excellent penalty.

Unfortunately the Bees were smoked out in the post match penalties as Masika Solomon shot was saved by the keeper whilst Macharia Melvin shot over the bar.
