Gor Mahia started their 2013 Tusker Premier League campaign by beating Sofapaka 1-0 in a match played at Kasarani sports centre on Saturday.
The all important goal came via new signing Paul Kiongera in the 38th minute. Edwin Lavatsa did the spadework and centred to Kiongera who finished with a brilliant backheel to give Gor Mahia the lead.
The win over a team of such high calibre as Sofapaka bodes well for the team given that Gor Mahi have had poor starts to the season in the last 4 years. It also shows that the team can indeed score and defend against high calibre teams. Note that Gor Mahia have not conceded a goal in the last four competitive matches.
