Jericho face Blue Stars in SportPesa Super 8 semi-finals
Jericho All stars will clash with Shauri Moyo Blue Stars in the semi-finals of the inaugural SportPesa Super 8 Champions League after both sides came through unscathed in their quarter-finals matches over the weekend at City Stadium. The other last four clash will pit TUK against will Meltah Kabiria at the same venue this Sunday.
Jericho made it through after beating bitter rivals Kayole Asubuhi 5-4 in a nail-biting penalty shootout following 0-0 draw in regulation time. Tom Okoth, Mwangi Nduati, Brian Kasasi, Eddie Kuria and Eddie Otieno scored their penalties which guaranteed Jericho’s place in the last four while Kayole scored through Focus Onuka, Godwin Sematimba, Joel Mu- tua and Asumani Abdallah. It was a hard earned win for Thomas Okongo’s Jericho who missed out on the Super 8 league title to Kayole last month.
Before that, a brace from Evans Otieno in either halves of the game helped TUK keep alive their dream of silverware this season after edging 10man Kawangaware United 3-1 to also make it to the last four of the competition.
Steven Odhiambo added the third for TUK with 10-man Kawangware, getting a consolation through Daniel Muturi. After playing to a dull barren stalemate, Shauri Moyo Blue Stars defeated Metro Sports 4-3 in the post-match spot kicks to also secure their slot in the East Conference semis.
