Bandari produced at attacking masterclass at the Mbaraki grounds to demolish visiting Western Stima 4-1 to sail to the semi finals of the Sportpesa Shield.

Another Mombasa-based side, Assad FC sealed their last four place after beating local rivals – Congo Boys.

Bandari, who had eliminated mighty Gor Mahia 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw, had easy sailing with Shaban Kenga and William Wadri scoring each a goal in the first half to give the home team proper cushioning.

There was no hiding place for the visitors in the second half as the dockers proved too good, Hassan Abdalla and Wycliffe Ochomo adding two more goals for Bandari in the second half.

Henry Onyango pulled one back for Western Stima but the goal could not change  the tide of the game.

Bandari coach Bernard Mwalala praised his charges for the win but felt his side should have registered a better score had their strikers been sharp in finishing.
