Stars through to Cecafa quarters



Harambee Stars are through to the quarterfinals of this year’s Cecafa Tusker Cup after brushing aside Ethiopia 3-1 in the final Group A match played at Namboole Stadium on Friday.

Goals from Rama Salim, Clifton Miheso and David Ochieng was enough to give satrs its second victory of the tournament while Elias Mamo got Ethiopia’s consolation goal.

It is Kenya’s best performance since 2009 when they reached the final in Uganda.

Rama Salim broke the deadlock on 19 minutes when he converted a Mike Barasa cross to score his first international goal.

The Antelopes hopes of staging a comeback were dashed, seven minutes later when Thika United player Clifton Miheso headed home Bernard Mang’oli’s corner.

Kenya conceded a goal at the half hour mark after keeper Duncan Ochieng parried the ball back into play only for Elias Mamo to unleash a 20 yard shot.

Humphrey Mieno was brought into the fray in place of Sofapaka’s Anthony Kimani as Kenya resorted to strengthen their midfield.

David Ochieng who ensured Kenya were through to last eight when he netted the third and final of the match in the 72nd minute courtesy of a well taken freekick by Abdalla Juma.
