At the Narok Stadium, Peter Nzuki’s 73rd minute goal guided Tusker through to the quarter finals at the expense of Bungoma Superstars with a slim 1-0 margin.

Sofapaka eased passed NSL side Western Stima with a 4-1 win  in the second match staged the Narok Stadium. Elly Aseke opened Batoto Ba Mungu’s account in the 12th minute followed by an own goal in the 39th minute to see Stima trail by a two goal margin at halftime.

Sofapaka were not yet done, netting two more goals in the second half. Brian Kigonya and Stephen Waruru added to the tally to all but ensure quarter final qualification for their Sofapaka.

Kevin Okoth scored the only goal for Western Stima, hitting the target in the 53rd minute, but it only proved to be a consolation goal.

At the Mumias Complex, Vihiga United took the lead in the 37th minute from a Dennis Kalama goal but could not hold on with the halftime break looming. The soldiers responded immediately, hitting the target courtesy of Elvis Nandwa to level things at the break.

The game seemed destined for penalty shootouts but Danstone Nyaudo charges had other ideas, Oscar Wamalwa heading home the decisive goal in the 88th minute, to bring United’s run in the tournament to an end.
