South Coast postpones Super Cup matches over political tension

Football Kenya Federation South Coast Branch has postponed all the Taifa Chapatti Super Cup matches that were scheduled to be held yesterday due to the repeat presidential election.

A circular from branch CEO Sumba Bwire to the affected clubs says the matches have been rescheduled to next Tuesday as they continue monitoring the prevailing political climate in the country. The affected matches are Dumna versus GFC Rangers tie, the matches between Super Matuga and Chasa, Diani Stars and Nacet as well as the Dzunga versus Mkongani clash.

Meanwhile, a late strike from Steve Biko earned FC Shells from Likoni a ticket to the quarter-finals of the competition after they pipped Bambini from Ukunda by a solitary goal during the Zone D match played at Kombani grounds on Wednesday.

Bambini, who needed any type of a draw to proceed to the next round failed to soak up the heat of the day and after surviving anxious moments, the match went into half-time still goal-less.

The breakthrough came in the 85th minute when Biko scored the lone goal to help his side storm the quarter-finals. FC Shells finished second in the four-team Zone D table with four points, one ahead of third-placed Bambini.

Meanwhile at Diani Babla ground, Mombasa Maize Millers battled to a barren draw against Magutu Strikers from Diani to stay at the top of the table with seven points.

Mombasa Maize Millers will now face runners up in Zone B in the quarter-finals scheduled for November 7 at Diani Babla while FC Shells will clash with the winners of the same zone at Mzimuni on the same date.

Elsewhere in a Zone A match played at Ukunda Show ground, bitter rivals Shimba Hills and Ss Assad shared the spoils after settling for a 1-1 draw while in other match in the same zone, Mzimuni Chicago sailed to the quarter-finals after their opponents Real Junior failed to show up.
