Gor Mahia Youth thump Kakakuona to secure league finals berth


Gor Mahia Youth registered an overly impressive 4-0 win over Kakakuona FC in the Nairobi Regiinal league semi-finals at the Camp Toyoyo Stadium - Jericho on Saturday afternoon.

The NRL Zone D champions thumped the Zone A winners to book a finals date with Naivas FC who recorded a 2-1 victory over Uweza FC the first mini league semi-final at the same venue.

Kakakuona were impressive in the early moments of the encounter and looked to bring a real champions contest feeling into the contest, but their momentary display of brilliance soon faded after the quarter hour sizing up by both sides.

The dominace scale swung in favour of Gor Mahia Youth and the youngsters never looked back.

Daniel 'Alves' Otieno opened the scoring with a strong left foot strike into the near post after Cliff Nyakeya had worked his way to the left byline to deliver a low cut back that the Kakakuona defenders failed to clear.

The goal seemed to send shivers down the opposition spine and further distabilize their game plan as they were constantly threatened by the youngsters' onslaught led by the trio of Alves, Onyango and Nyakeya and greatly supported by the overlapping runs by the two fullbacks Kevin Otieno and Mark Kimanzi.

But the second goal was to come from the industrious midfield link man Teddy Osok who struck a curling shot from the edge of the box off the far post and into the back of the net.

Gor Mahia Youth took a well worked and deserved 2-0 lead into the break and emerged for the second period in the same tune that they marched off with in the first.

Alves saw his attempt to stretch the lead from the penalty spot parried out for a corner after Cliff Nyakeya was bundled in the area.

But the signs kept showing for a possible third goal as Kakakuona were locked in their half of the pitch with their goalkeeper the bussiest of the two custodians. Vincent Odhiambo was nearly reduced to a spectator as his goal mouth saw very little action.

Cliff Nyakeya stretched Gor Mahia Youth's lead after being set through from the midfield and he raced away from the defenders to calmly make it 3-0.

With that third goal, ruling out atleast another one more was nearly impossible. Kakakuona tactically resorted to high defensive line in an attempt to try push play out of their area was punished.

Their defense was split by yet another feed from the midfield and left arm raising in claim for an offside call against Derrick Onyango who raced away, closely folliwed by Alves  to seal victory.

The final battle for Nairobi Regional League overall winners tittle takes center stage at the same venue on Sunday 13th September 2015.

The match will kick-off at 3:00pm.
