Kariobangi Sharks strolled to the quarter finals of the FKF Shield with a 1-0 win courtesy of a Eric Kapaito goal in 60th minute that drowned Muranga Seals in a game staged at the Camp Toyoyo Grounds on Monday 1st April.

After seeing big guns in the name of Ulinzi Stars, AFC Leopards and Sofapaka suffering major upsets in the competition thus far, Kariobangi Sharks coach William Muluya fielded a strong line up with Boniface Onyango being the only non- regular starter. Despite Sharks starting on the front foot, Muranga Seals made a good account of themselves showing defensive solidity. 

Sharks went close in the 14 the minute when Patillah Omoto struck a sumptuous freekick that kissed the underside of the crossbar and fortunately for the keeper it bounced on the ground and hit him on his way out. 

After a quiet spell without clear cut chances Sharks managed to curve out a chance in the 33rd minute when Tom Teka's attempted clearance from a free-kick fell to Michubu Eric who fired a ferocious shot that was well marched by Brain Bwire in goal who tipped it over for a corner.

Sharks went close five minutes from the interval when Boniface Onyango curled in a free-kick from the right flank that drew a smart save from Wilson Ngamau who parried it away for a corner. Both teams went into the break locked in a barren draw.

William Muluya intoduced George Abege for James Mazembe in the 57th minute as he aimed to add the much needed attacking impetus and it took only three minutes for Sharks to open the scoring after the substitution when Geoffrey Shiveka pinged in a long ball that was nodded in by Eric Kapaito for his second goal in three days following his goal against Gor Mahia.

George Abege squandered a glorious chance in the 78th minute when Kapaito delivered a pinpoint cross that found the Ugandan import in the far post and in acres of space that allowed him to control the ball but his effort was saved by Ngamau in goal.

Sharks won the tie 1-0 to book a quarters slot while Muranga Seals will pick much positives from the game as they managed to contain the holders of the competition.
