Githurai All Stars stormed into the Sakaja Super Cup grand finals in style following their 2-0 victory over Victors Faith FC in a terse Thika Road Derby Nairobi East regional finals played at the ASK Jamuhuri show ground, Sunday.
Buoyed by their chanting fans who came in droves, Githurai All Stars settled into the match fast getting to business after David Wonder made the first attempt at goal in the 4th minute but Victors Faith goal keeper Isaac Muya punched it out for a corner.
Fine play from Githurai All stars captain Teddy Ouko and mid field maestro Kevin Kimani gifted Douglas Manga a chance to beat the keeper at close range in the 17th minute as he found the net to send fans into thunderous cheers.
Eric Kuria made another dangerous attack in the 24th minute as Githurai continued to pile pressure on their neighbours.
Wisdom Wakoli had a chance to equalise in the 34th minute but slid at the edge of the box. Nahashon Thiong’o slotted in easy inside the six yard box as the Victors faith players watched in dismay in the 73rd minute to seal the fate for Victors faith who came into the second half in an offensive attempt to equalize.
Githurai will face off with the winners from Nairobi West Kawasaki Sports from Starehe who will be playing in-front of their home South B fans at the Police Sacco Stadium in South C in the finals set to be played on Tuesday 19th December, 2023.
