Penalties reigned at the Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday 19 August as Sony Sugar bundled Kenyan Premier League (KPL) rivals Bandari FC out of contention for the 2017 GOtv Shield title with a 3-1 win in the second quarter final.

Sony took the lead in the 14th minute through Yemi Mwana who capitalized on some poor defending from the boys from the coast; the midfielder burying a rebound that had been parried by Wilson Oburu, having failed to hold on to Fredrick Onyango's shot.

Amos Asembeka then doubled Sony's lead at the half hour mark from the penalty spot after Felly Mulumba was adjudged to have fouled Mwana in the box. Sony took a 2-0 lead to the break.

Asembeka  then scored his second and Sony's third from the spot four minutes after resumption with Mulumba culpable again in bringing down Mwana in the penalty area. The incident evoked emotions from both sides, especially as Sony Sugar called for Mulumba to be sent off.

Baron Oketch pulled one back for the Dockers 15 minutes from time but it was too little too late with Sony seeing the game out despite playing with a man less after Jessy Obora was handed his marching orders six minutes from time.
