Masoud Juma's goals in either half secured a place for Kariobangi Sharks in the finals of this year's Gotv Shield tournament after overcoming SoNy Sugar 2-0 on Sunday September 24 at the Afraha Stadium.
Sharks were more determined from the start and had a chance in the 4th minute when Michael Bodo initiated a counter attack, but SoNy Sugar defenders stood firm on ground to snatch the ball from Ellie Asieche.
The Nairobi based club was then dealt a blow in the 27th minute, Pattillah Omoto being forced out of the game with an injury and was substituted by Christopher Kimathi. They however took the lead just three minutes through dangerman Masoud Juma who showed keeper Kevin Omondi what he is capable of doing with the ball.
SoNy then sort a reply in the 33rd minute but Wycliffe Otieno was swift to clear the ball out of danger.
In the second half, the sugar millers came back stronger in search of an equalizer but Masoud Juma put the match beyond reach for them with his second goal in the 80th minute.
