Boniface Omondi scored the lone goal as champions Gor Mahia defeated Zoo FC 1-0 in their Kenyan Premier League match at the Afraha Stadium on Sunday.
The win saw the defending champions make it four wins out of four and maintain their lead at the top of the table with 12 points.
K’Ogalo were made to wait until the last 10 minutes of the game before Omondi received a well weighted cross from Kennedy Otieno inside the danger zone and side stepped his markers, and fired a powerful shot that was first blocked by Zoo custodian Martin Elungat, before it rolled into the empty net in the 81st minute.
Gor head coach Steve Pollack admitted that his charges were sluggish in the first half and praised the Zoo defence for frustrating the Gor strikers.
“After the halftime pep talk, the boys heeded my advice and this changed the way they played in the last 15 minutes. However, I am happy they laboured to score a single goal and that to me is satisfying,” said coach Pollack.
On his part, Zoo coach Herman Iswekha blamed lack of concentration by his defenders in the final quarter of the match.
