Strathmores striking sensation, Davis Wanangwe rose up to the occassion, scoring 3 goals in 3 minutes to finish the match with 4 goals to his name and a victory to Strathmore. Tony Nyukuri added to the Ghanian misery by scoring the 6th goal in the 70th minute.

Exchequers had been reduced to 10 men in the 31st minute but had defended well, managed to add 2 more goals in the second half and had all but booked their ticket to the semi-finals.  However, Meshak Senge’s charges rose to the occassion, taking advantage of a momentary lapse in concentration to bag the 4 goals in the last 4 minutes of the match.
