Sofapaka cruised to the last-16 of the FKF-Shield after hitting Baba Ndogo United 3-0 on Sunday in a match staged at Camp Toyoyo grounds in Nairobi.

Sofapaka took the lead in the 18th minute thanks to Stephen Waruru’s clever finish after he was teed up by Kasumba Umar in a build-up that was initiated by striker Piston Mutamba who collected the ball from the middle of the park to set up the play.

It only took six minutes before Sofapaka doubled their lead, again Piston Mutamba involved in the build-up, robbing the ball from Baba Ndogo’s defender Ochieng Kennedy and later delivering a through pass to Kasumba who slotted home from 12 yards out.

Baba Ndogo could not find a way past Sofapaka’s defence and their real chance came in the 27th minute when Aloro Roddgers fouled striker Ochieng JohMarik leading to a free-kick. Joshua Warui stepped up but his take hit the Sofapaka wall.

Sofapaka widened their lead five minutes after the break when Stephen Mutamba drove in a free-kick after his team mate Elly Asieche had been fouled by Dola Vincent.

The former Wazito FC striker stepped in curling to the top right corner to give his side the winning goal.

Baba Ndogo then made quick changes bringing in fresh legs in the likes of Enock Momanyi and  Kennedy Ochieng for Ochieng JohnMarik and Ochieng Kenedy arespectively but they could do little to salvage a point for their side.
