Western-based minnows River Plate continued with their amazing run after downing star studded Friend Zone FC 2-0

The Shield Cup round of sixteen takes center stage this weekend, and three matces have already been played.

At Narok Stadium, Western-based minnows River Plate continued with their amazing run after downing star studded Friend Zone FC 2-0.

Striker Kennedy Wanjiri opened the scoring for River Plate in the 7th minute with a fierce strike, before setting up Lugalia Michael later on to ensure progression to the quarter-finals.

However, the James Andati led side will have to thank goalkeeper George Ochieng, who made several top saves to help his team keep a clean sheet as well as a place in the second round.

In the same venue, Police FC survived late scare by Leysa to progress to the next round after winning the post match penalties 4-3.

Johnny Omait failed to connect two clear chances for the latter with about three minutes left, forcing the game to penalties.
