According to KPL rules, Sony stand a chance to forfeit the match after their fans forced referee Nasor Doka to call off the fixture with five minutes to play
Gor Mahia are likely to be handed points after their opponents Sony Sugar caused the abandonment of Sunday’s Kenyan Premier League match at Awendo Green Stadium.
Sony Sugar players protested Gor Mahia’s second goal in the 85th minute after defender David Owino had scored to hand them a lifeline.
Fans of Sony Sugar poured onto the pitch immediately Owino had scored and made play impossible to continue and forced referee Nasor Doka to call off the fixture.
Sony players declined to continue with play claiming Owino had scored from an off-side position and forced Doka to call off the fixture. According to KPL rules, a team that causes the abandonment of a match automatically loses the fixture.
Contacted on Monday, KPL Chief Executive Jack Oguda said they are waiting for the official match report before making a decision on the fate of the match.
Samuel Onyango had opened the scores for Sony in the 32nd minute helping the home side to take a 1-0 at the break. Gor Mahia goalkeeper Jerim Onyango kept the team in the match and denied Sony any more opportunity to score.
As usual Kevin Omondi came on and equalized for Gor in the 57th minute but it was short-lived score as Marwa Chamberi immediately extended his side’s lead two minutes later.
But a determined Gor Mahia side were unrelenting and kept up the pressure getting the equalizer in the 85th minute but it only lead to chaos.
