Shabana came from behind to force the game into penalties after they fell behind courtesy of a close-range strike by Mwatate forward John Musyoka.

Dennis Nyangwono restored parity off a corner kick by Wycliffe Nyang’echi in the 62nd minute to force a shootout which Shabana went on to seal the victory that sent them back to the second tier.
