Kenyan Premier League side Kariobangi Sharks made history on Sunday as they qualified for the GOtv-Shield final for the first time after mauling Sony Sugar 2-0 in a  semi-final match at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.

Masoud Juma was the toast of the afternoon scoring both goals to leave his team mates in glee.

Sharks will now face the winner between AFC Leopards and Vihiga United who clash at the same venue later on Sunday in the second semis.

Juma put the Sharks ahead in the 30th minute slotting home after being fed at the edge of the area.

He was at hand again with ten minutes left on the clock, scoring the winner to hand coach William Muluya a memorable victory.
