Koth Biro: Mieno Steers Opitos to Quarters

Terror Squad have been knocked out of this year’s Koth Biro tournament after losing 2-1 to a star studded Opitos FC. Tusker FC midfielder Humphrey Mieno and Carlson Mweresa scored in a space of two minutes to upset the Terrorists who had taken a 78th minute lead through a well taken goal by Antony Rupande. 

The closely contested match saw both sides waste many chances with Opito’s Jesse Were wasting four clear chances. Rupande on the other hand had a chance to give his team the lead midway through the first half but he fluffed his effort wide with the goal at his mercy.
