Both teams were tied 1-1 at normal time. Ingwe will now face the winner between Yanga and Tusker, who lock horns in another quarter final, Group ‘B’ match later on Monday. In the evenly contested match, Leopards, under assistant coach Denis Kitambi, were pegged back in the first half when Kuntinyu Tafadzwa neatly headed in beating Ingwe custodian Gabriel Andika.
Undeterred Leopards fought back to level through Vincent Oburu’s neat shot after being put through by a long range pass from the dreadlocked playmaker Allan Kateregga. Leopards, Tusker, Gor Mahia and Nakuru All Stars are representing Kenyan in the eight-nation team competition.
