Mozzart Bet Cup: KCB beats holders KK Homeboyz  to advance to the semi-final



KCB FC trounced defending champions Kakamega Homeboyz 1-0 to progress to the semifinals of the Mozzart Bet Cup at Dandora Stadium,Nairobi.

Danson Namasaka’s solitary strike in the second half was enough to see the bankers through to the last four.

The bankers created numerous chances in the first half but striker Derrick  Otanga, and Philemon Nyakwaka could not find the back of the net .

KCB FC head coach Bernard Mwalala  was ecstatic in victory saying the bigger task lay ahead.

“I am  proud of the boys for keeping their heads up and for winning against a very  good side. We know that the semifinals will be a totally different ball game and we are ready as KCB to battle. Going forward, we need to be clinical in front of  the goal to kill the game early enough.”

After a  goalless first half KCB came back in the second half guns blazing and it was not for long when they found the breakthrough after  Henry Ochieng played an excellent through  ball to Philemon Nyakwakwa whose back heel pass saw Danson Namasaka  who wasted no time and scored the sole goal.

Kakamega Homeboyz had their won chances as well with former  KCB player Nicholas Kipkurui almost pulling level but was denied by KCB FC goalkeeper Farouk Shikalo.

Mwalala made defensive changes in the dying minutes of the game, introducing Bernard Odhiambo to replace injured Farraj Ominde who was stretched out after picking up an injury.

Following the win the bankers are set to face the winner between AFC Leopards and Compel FC in the Cup’s semi-final.

AFC Leopards and Compel face off Sunday in the quarter final that will be preceded by SS Assad against Kariobangi Sharks.The matches will be broadcast live on KBC Channel1.
