Blasters dominated possession in the opening minutes but were unable to create a meaningful opening. In the 45th minute, Aibor Khongjee’s throw-in into the box was collected by David Ngaithe, who rolled it into the path for Spanish striker Koke to slot in a calm finish past the keeper. Blasters’ attack huffed and puffed, but was unable to get the equaliser.
