Last Saturday, Katolo came from 1-0 down to beat heavyweights Kisumu Day 2-1 in extra-time and book their ticket to the finals.

In fact, Katolo played full 90 minutes plus added time against Agai in the finals that were later abandoned with the game tied at 1-1.

However, Kisumu Day appealed the defeat claiming Katolo had fielded an ineligible player.
