Batoto ba Mungu sailed into the next round after seeing off Re-Union 2-0 in a match played at Camp Toyoyo on Sunday

Sofapaka and Vihiga United are the latest teams from Kenyan Premier League to book their places in the round of 32 of FKF Shield Cup.

Batoto ba Mungu sailed into the next round after seeing off Re-Union 2-0 in a match played at Camp Toyoyo on Sunday. Stephen Waruru netted early in the match before George Maelo got to the end of a corner-kick by Kevin Kimani to score Sofapaka’s second goal.

Re-Union came into the second half a rejuvenated side, but could not find a way past the more experienced Sofapaka defence. The 2014 FKF Cup champions will consequently face off with Baba Dogo United, who had earlier on Saturday knocked out Equity Bank FC.

Kisumu Hot Stars knocked out their FKF Division One League counterparts Raiply FC 2-1 in the first match of the day. Augustine Kuta’s first-half brace was all Hot Stars needed to book a round of 32 date with Premier League side Posta Rangers. Raiply scored a late consolation through Isharat Ondita.

The second match of the day saw Kenyan Premier League side Nzoia United ease past Dero FC 7-0. Patrick Kwitonda netted a hattrick, with Kevin Juma, David Ouma, Collins Wakhungu and Edgar Nzano also getting their names on the scoresheet.

Vihiga United would then edge out FKF Division II side Nyamira All-Stars 5-0 in the final match of the day. Christopher Masinza netted a hattrick with Kelvin Mugone and Godfrey Airo also on target for the KPL side.

In Kakamega, FKF National Super League sides Nakuru All-Stars and Bidco United recorded mixed results. All-Stars lost 1-0 to River Plate while Bidco United beat Kabras United 4-0.
