Penalty shootout saves Ulinzi blushes

19 September 2016, 11:57

Nairobi - Ulinzi Stars assistant coach Benjamin Nyangweso breathed sigh of relief after his team advanced to the GOtv semi-final after a 4-2 penalty shootout win over Nzoia United.

Ulinzi were held to a 1-1 draw by a resilient Nzoia side in regulation time of the quarterfinal at the Moi Stadium on Saturday.

The lower tier outfit had become giant killers in the tournament after eliminating Kenyan Premier League heavyweights Gor Mahia in the previous round.

Nyangweso, who has been standing in for the ill coach Robert Matano, was pleased with the result.

"We knew we were going to play a very tough game because if you look at Nzoia, they have been in fine form in their league," Nyangweso told Soka.

"They are still unbeaten and also it is normally harder to play a team in the lower division than it is a team in the top flight. In preparation for the game we tried to analyze their strongest points and dealt with them.

"Matano is a fellow coach and I was used to working together with him and you know his shoes are too big to fill but I am trying as much as I can to see that I keep the team where it is supposed to be and we are trying so much to win so it can also lift him.

"I know he is happy with this win and we will try to keep the team where he would want it to be."

Ulinzi will take on Kariobangi Sharks in the semi finals.
