Record GOtv Shield champions Gor Mahia were dumped out of contention for this year's honors after they fell to a 6-5 defeat on post match penalties against 2015 winners Bandari FC.

Kogalo thought the football gods were smiling at them when they forced a second half equaliser after Cosmas Junior had put the Dockers ahead in a game that ended on a one-all stalemate in normal time.

They will have themselves to blame though as thrice, they got an opportunity to punish Bandari's missed spot kicks, and thrice they failed to.

The first culprit was Francis Kahata who failed to net the decisive penalty when they were 4-3 up, and with a kick in hand. His effort was saved by Bandari substitute keeper Joseph Okoth.

Gor keeper Boniface Oluoch also fancied himself scoring a match-winning spot kick but he aimed low, and wide. Another opportunity gone.

Felly Mulumba gave Bandari the edge when he sunk his kick into the roof of the net. With Kogalo's penalty takers running thin, it was up to Kenneth Muguna, who had strangely kept himself at bay, to step forward.

Step forward he did but he had his doubts confirmed as Okoth dived to his right to make the ultimate save that sends the Dockers to the final 16.

Joining them into the next phase were Wazito FC who dumped out KCB and Vihiga United who bettered Ushuru FC 4-3 on penalties.

Jackson Macharia's solitary goal meanwhile was enough to send Tusker FC through, beating Palos FC 1-0.

There were barely any upsets registered during the first matchday of the GOtv Shield last 32 stage as big guns from the Kenyan Premier League matched to the next round.

Leading the pack were AFC Leopards who overcame a potential banana skin in Nairobi Stima while Sofapaka got the better of Western Stima in an all-premier League affair.

Early goals from debutant Aziz Okaka and Joshua Mawira saw the Leopards complete their day's work early enough but there was no repeat of a glut of goals witnessed in their previous round when they put 15 past minnows Dero FC.

Former Leopards midfielder Ivan Anguyo battled in midfield for Stima.

Sofapaka

Meanwhile 2014 champions Sofapaka were made to sweat as they narrowly edged Western Stima 1-0 at the Thika Stadium.

Captain Hillary Echesa scored the solitary goal shortly after the quarter hour mark to send Batoto ba Mungu through to the pre-quarterfinal stage. 
 
The former Chemelil Sugar midfielder, wearing the captain's armband completed a fine-flowing move that was initiated by a peach of a pass from fellow mid-season signing from AFC Leopards Bernard Mang'oli.
 
Stima were far from even being second half during the opening half as they struggled to get beyond the Sofapaka midfield.
 
Henry Omino's side were however a different opponent after the interval as they utilized the aerial ability of substitute Herbert Kopany while the diminutive Ezekiel Otuoma increasingly grew into the game.
 
However, it was Vincent Omumbo, playing in front of fans he once called his own while at Thika United, who almost got the equalizer when he connected to a cross with a header which forced a superb one-handed save from Paka keeper George Opiyo.
 
Opiyo saved the match from penalties in the final minute when he got low to save from point blank a chance which feel at Otuoma's feet. It would end 1-0 to the 2014 champions though as they sneaked through.
 
GFE, Sharks
 
GFE 105 had earlier beaten Karatina Homeboyz 2-1 at the same venue.
 
Nakumatt needed post-match penalties to overcome National Super League side Modern Coast Rangers who bowed out 6-7 after a barren end.
 
High-flying Kariobangi Sharks marched past Kenpoly 2-0 with goals from Gambian Ebrima Sanneh and Steven Odhiambo while Eldoret Youth were 2-0 winners over Young Divers as they also entered the next phase.
 
Hosts Kakamega Homeboyz also advanced, albeit nervously, with a narrow 1-0 win over Zetech.
 
The remaining matches will be held tomorrow, Sunday.
