Three second half goals against Kisumu All Stars sent champions Gor Mahia back to the Kenyan Premier League summit (KPL) and on course for a 4th consecutive title.
After a goalless opening half in Kisumu’s Moi stadium headboy Nicholas Kipkirui opened the scores one minute into the second half, connecting well with Bernard Ondiek’s precise cross to nod K’Ogalo’s first.
The goal atoned for three misses by Kipkirui in the first half and served to open up a previously confined Otenga. As a result K’Ogalo found more spaces in the opposition half and soon doubled scores when skipper Kenneth Muguna, back from national duty with Harambee Stars, fired in a shot cross that somehow evaded a forest of legs in the box and sailed into the net.
Ondiek, provider of the first goal, then forced himself on the score sheet with his Gor Mahia’s third just four minutes after Muguna had breach All Stars.
Consequently, Gor Mahia have toppled eleven-time champions Tusker from the league summit on goal difference as both teams are on 28 points. Coincidentally both Gor Mahia and Tusker are the joint second highest scorers in the division with twenty three goals each behind Kakamega Homeboyz who have plundered twenty five.
The defending champions have conceded just five goals while erstwhile leaders Tusker have been breach sixteen times, thus succumbing to K’Ogalo’s massive goal difference.
with three games at hand Gor Mahia could tretch their lead at the top on December 29th when they play Posta Rangers.
