Additional reporting from the Nation

A sterling second half performance helped champions Gor Mahia down Chemelil Sugar 2-0 in a SportPesa Premier League encounter at the Kenyatta stadium in Machakos on Wednesday.

Nicholas Kipkirui drew first blood on 46 minutes before Boniface Omondi doubled the scores in the 52nd minute with a half volley from inside the box.

Gor’s first victory in the New Year takes their tally to six, seven behind leaders Mathare United.

K’Ogalo play Mathare United on Sunday at Kasarani.

Gor piled pressure on the visitors from the moment referee Isaac Memusi blew the opening whistle.

Omondi fed Jacques Tuyisenge with a deep cross on 14 minutes but the Rwandese effort was parried for a corner kick by Chemelil custodian Kevin Otieno.

On 31 minutes, Lawrence Juma’s rasping shot from 20 yards hit the side netting.

A minute later, Harun Shakava failed to guide his free header into the net after connecting to Francis Kahata’s delivery from a freekick.

The millers, donning yellow shirts and black shorts, sat deep to defend waiting to break on the counter.

On 36 minutes, Boniface Omondi teed up Kahata but the latter’s left foot low drive was palmed away by Otieno for yet another corner that Tuyisenge headed to the roof of the net.

Kipkirui, who paved way for Ivorian Ephrem Guikan on 58 minutes, scored into an empty net after Chemelil defenders failed to clear their lines.

Lawrence Juma would then find Omondi with a long ball inside the box and the diminutive forward converted with a sweet half volley for Gor’s second.

Chemelil coach Francis Baraza introduced Biko Tindi for Felix Oluoch on 64 minutes.

Gor coach Hassan Oktay preferred Frederick Odhiambo in between the sticks with Ernest Wendo doing the donkey work in the midfield as Lawrence Juma played behind the striking duo of Kipkirui and Tuyisenge.

Francis Kahata and Boniface Omondi played on the flanks interchangeably before the former paved way for Samuel Onyango on 69 minutes.

    Anyway congratulations Mayienga for the win.Keep it up.

  3. Kudos! absence of some players is a blessing in disguise. The next match against Mathare will provide a good opportunity for today’s keeper to stamp his authority between the posts if given another chance.

  4. Congrats team, keep it up. Kipkurui appears to have started on a good note at Kogalo. Just played a few matches and he already scored 2 goals.

  5. A slow first half a better second half.. clean sheet and still room for improvement .its a better result will raise the confidence in the camp we should now get another better result for consistency . Dennis oliech becomes another addition in the squad meaning experience..we have brought class. We have brought a winner with a winning mentality this is good for us its good for the brand

  9. Congratulations but oktay is still not up to par !

    Dennis oliech salary and allowances will be directly paid by jodala associates , a vehicle formed by businessmen and politicians from the lake region to develop and transform the club into a fully commercial entity by 2025.

    Watch this space !

  10. Congrats team GM.This updates about jodala what are they meant to achieve,? Am afraid @ jakoyo unknowingly unapitwa na wakati.You want jodala to be given a trophy or a tour to museum.Emancipate yourself from jodala slavery.

  12. From cold frigid Kansas our beloved K’Ogalo receive hearty congratulations for the win against Chemelil FC

    In Victory and glory, in defeat and agony K’Ogalo for ever!!

  13. Peter Shilton retired from football at the age of 48 years (goalkeeper)

    Rodger Miller retired from football at the age off 44 years (striker)

    Goalkeepers seem to play for a relatively longer period.

  14. Mulembe to everone here? How have you been doing. Has anyone seen my brother Barefoot of late?. Ni salamu tu nimewaletea

  15. Good morning folks, I am happy that we are all slowly trooping back to back to bases. Happy new year. The abused and bravado have died down hence we can all settle down and support Gor Mahia. Happy new year.

  16. Good morning Ingo, while you were away we played CAF champions League and qualified for CAF CC , We also signed Oliech,, meanwhile Ingwe was busy hiring and firing coaches really not big news at Ingwe as you know

    1. Hahaha sasa wewe unanichekesja. Ati you have signed oliech? Who will you sign next? Peter Dawo or David Kamongo Ochieng. This is why people from the lakeside like the radio show zilizopendwa

  17. Now that we play in Cameroun on the 18th Jan has the EC thought of how we will make it for the return leg. Or we will wait till then and then start being victim with a begging bowl

  18. @Ingo, Oliech is still young, Roger Milla scored crucial goals for Cameroon in the 1990 World Cup at the age of 42 years. He helped Camerroon reach the World Cup quarterfinals in that year, the ever best perfomance by an African team in the World Cup. Even in Kenya here we have several players who have retired in football at the age of 35 years. At 33 years Oliech can still play very well.

    1. So why has he been out of action for the last 2 year’s? You mean to tell me that oliech has been staying at home for 2 years while he could be making money? Shemeji, this is another Jabrasil case yawa

  19. I suspect the silly gor player has metamorphosed back to ingo and is now very bitter about Gor beating Chemelil and signing Oliech. Please ingo be well advised and keep off Gor matters, there is plenty of trash to write about AFC(Always Firing Coaches)

  20. @Ingo, why Oliech has been out for 2 years are his personal reasons we cant get involved in. Even Roger Milla of Camerron retired from playing football at the age of 38 years and resumed playing at the age of 42 years. Playing and not playing are personal decisions. May be he had personal or family issues he was sorting out which we cant get involved in.
