AFC Leopards bundled out of Sportpesa Shield cup by minnows
AFC Leopards have been eliminated out of the Sportpesa Shield Cup by minnows Bungoma Super Stars through a penalty shoot-out.
Bungoma were conquerors of Kenya premier league game against Sofapaka in the previous round and were on course for another shock as in the 11th minute when Menganyi George found the net.
Ingwe struggled to break their opponent’s backline until Brian Marita presented some joy for AFC Leopards in the 76th minute when his shot found the back of the net for the equalizer.
Leopards, however, were undone in the subsequent penalty shootout as Robinson Kamura and Marita had their efforts denied for a 4-3 post-match win for the Bungoma minnows.
AFC Leopards will now focus on keeping themselves out of the relegation spots with Ingwe hosting Chemelil Sugar in the Kenya premier league.
