End of the road for stubborn Nzoia as they fall to Ulinzi in shield Cup

Premier League side Ulinzi Stars were lucky to escape the wrath of  lower tier league side Nzoia United as they squeezed through with post match penalties victory to qualify for the semi finals  of the GOTV Shield Cup at the Kisumu Municipal Stadium on Saturday.

The two teams played to a one all draw in regulation time forcing the match to be decided on penalties  with Ulinzi winning 4-2.

Nzoia United, who  knocked Gor Mahia out of the championship, came to this match with  all the confidence of giant slayers. Lawrence Juma netted Nzoia's opening goal in the 30th minute pouncing on a loose ball in the danger area to beat Ulinzi custodian James Saruni for the lead.

John Mark Makwata would then level  the scores for the soldiers rising above the defense line to head home  the equalizer  in a match that ended 1-1 despite  end to end action with missed chances from either side.

In other matches also played on Saturday, Posta Rangers advanced to the third round of the competition with a 5-4 post match penalties win  over Ushuru at the Nyayo stadium.
