Homabay recklessly ran over Kisii with a resounding 4-2 win to crack a slot in the semifinals of the Talanta Hela Football tournament that entered its third day at the Moi Complex primary school in Nyeri county.
This was Homabay's third consecutive win having earlier also unleashed their might against Kakamega and Nakuru counties, whom they walloped by a similar 2-0 margin.
Head coach Omondi Ouma was over the moon after they punched a ticket to the semi-finals at the full-time whistle.
"It always feels good to win. We are excited to have advanced to the next stage of the competition," Omondi said.
The youthful tactician, who holds a Uefa C license, lavished praise on his charges for exhibiting exceptional character and unmatched passion in their campaign thus far.
“I have to give it to the players for putting their best foot forward in the tournament up to this stage of the competition. They have put in a lot of effort to obtain positive results and it is encouraging to see them play according to instruction," Omondi said.
Omondi said he was happy that the 17 years he has spent as a player and a coach in the lower tiers of the United States of America are finally bearing fruits.
He attributed the team's success to the support they have received from the county government.
“I want to thank our governor Gladys Wanga for supporting the team wholeheartedly. I want to dedicate this victory to her,” Omondi said.
Cecil Miller fired Homabay into the lead barely 23 minutes from the off before Samson Onyango and Allan Odhiambo netted two quick fire goals in the 31st and 35th minutes to extend the advantage.
Kisii emerged from the tunnel eager to change the tide of the encounter and it was not long before Abednego Moriasi pulled one back in the 56th minute from the spot.
Homabay then hammered the final nail on Kisii's casket when Kenyatta Onyango poked the ball into the net 20 minutes later.
But Moriasi would once again prove to be the toast for Kisii when he stepped up to blast in yet another penalty to reduce the deficit in the dying minutes of the match.
