Defending champions Gor Mahia sent parking hard-fighting Sony Sugar 4 – 2 to book a final berth in a Shield Cup semi final match staged at a rainy MISC Kasarani starting 1600hrs local time.
David Calabar Owino slotted home the winning penalty after Charles Odette and Ben Barasa splashed theirs with Wycliffe Nyangech and Marwa Chamberi coolly placing theirs past Ivo Mapunda.
Patrick Oboya, Kevin Omondi and youngster Joseph Timonar Wanyonyi had as well scored theirs.
From an eventful first half, Gor Mahia came back in the second half and pressed on to break the deadlock. Kevin Omondi took his free kick wide from 30 yards that coming in the 46th minute.
It was Sony Sugar who made the first sub pulling out Victor Ochieng’ for Steve Biko in the 57th minute.
Moses Arita then latched on a Marwa Chamberi cross from the right flank in the 66th minute but the former’s attempted shot on target was cleared from the line by Israel Emuge.
With Gor Mahia leading ball possession by 55% compared to 45% that of Sony Sugar, the match seemed to be going Gor’s way with Emuge again heading wide from a Joseph Wanyonyi corner in the 67th minute.
Bobby Williamson brought in recovering Patrick Oboya for ineffective Mungai Kiongera who had earlier been benched but handed a starting opportunity after Dan Sserunkuma picked up a slight injury minutes before kick off with the Ugandan international being relegated to the bench.
