Tusker, Bidco sail into FKF Betway Cup quarter finals

NAIROBI, Kenya, June 05 – Premier League sides Tusker FC and Bidco United sailed into the quarter finals of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Betway Cup after picking identical 1-0 victories in the round of 16 games on Saturday afternoon.

Tusker beat National Division One side Luanda Villa at the Ruaraka Complex while Bidco United beat Egerton University at the Thika Stadium. In the early kick off, Division One side Equity Bank beat Vegpro 2-1.

The brewers will play the winner between AFC Leopards and Bungoma Superstars in the quarters on Wednesday while Bidco will take on the winner between Ulinzi Stars and City Stars.

The forward slammed the ball into the net after breaking into the box following a neat lay-off from Hum Mieno. Before the goal, Meja had come close twice.

First he was put through on goal by Chris Ochieng but he could not keep his shot down. Midway through the first half, Meja [icked up a low cut down from Kevin Monyi, but his shot after turning away from his marker went over by a few inches.

Tusker had more chances in the second half especially the final 10 minutes. Eight minutes to the break, substitute Chris Onyango saw his shot go inches over the bar while Brian Marita was denied by the crossbar with a neat shot on a first time volley.

Twice in succession a few minutes later, the crossbar denied Tusker once again. Meja’s stinging shot from inside the box came off the woodwork before Mieno was denied same way after rising to head a Luke Namanda corner.
