The eagerly awaited Mashujaa day semi final , FKL cup encounter pitting arch rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards was abandoned in the 90th minute due to crowd trouble. Throughout the match there was tension between fans as they exchanged taunts.
Matters really came to a head on 78 minutes when Police had to step in to calm fans down. Commotion continued until a linesman was forced to leave his position as the missles came flying in. Matters became worse when Kogalo stopper Eric Masika was hit by a foreign object and had to be treated. On 90s minutes, AFC players walked out of the pitch forcing the referee to end the match.
Gor Mahia had taken the lead in the 50th minute when Moses Odhiambo headed home from a freekick. Prior to the match, club officials held a meeting with Kogalo players to iron out outstanding issues that had led to the lackadaisical display of late. In fact Gor Mahia dominated the early exchanges with Collins Okoth pulling strings in midfield and Makori coming dangerously close on many occasions.
FKL will make a decision on Friday.
