Tusker FC bounced back from a goal down to beat fourth tier side Marafiki United 4-1 at the Kinunga Stadium in Nyeri on Wednesday to progress to the third round of the Football Kenya Federation Betway Cup.
Tusker will take on Luanda Villa in Nairobi on Saturday.
The home side broke the deadlock two minutes after the break through their captain Nick Kirui. However, Sammy Meja’s freekick, Kevin Monyi’s deflected cross, Henry Meja and Rodgers Aloro all scored to ensure victory.
After a cagy opening half where chances were not so open, the game blew up in the second half. Off a counter attack. Korir swung in an acrobatic kick from inside the area to beat Mike Wanjala.
However, Tusker fought back to get into the game and Sammy’s freekick from distance was deflected into the net for the leveller. Off a brilliant team move, Monyi’s cross from the right was deflected into the net by the Marafiki defense.
Meja then slammed home his goal minutes later when another decent passing move by the team saw Hum Mieno pick the ball on the right before teeing up Meja.
Just like he did against Vihiga United on Sunday, Rodgers Aloro put a marker to the match with the fourth and final goal off the penalty spot after Meja was hacked down inside the box by the goalkeeper.
