After a drought that lasted four games without a goal, Gor Mahia blasted three goals past Chemelil Sugar to win 3-1.
Additional Reporting from the Nation
Shortly before kick-off across the three venues on Saturday, teams lined up on either side of the centre circle to observe a minute of silence in honour of veteran coach James Siang’a, who passed away on Friday night.

At Nyayo Stadium, having failed to score in their last three league games, the champions were under pressure to perform, and they showed urgency in the opening minutes of the game with George Odhiambo, Jacques Tuyisenge and Haron Shakava coming close.

Shakava had a good chance in the 10th minute when he rose high to meet a long ball worked from a corner, but he sent his header inches wide.

Willis Ouma and Jared Obwoge also had a chance each for the visitors early on but we’re unable to convert them.
or finally found the back of the net through a sublime Francis Kahata free-kick, which beat Chemelil keeper Ali Kimera for the opener in the 16th minute.

The sugar millers however responded through Jared Obwoge, who beat Gor custodian Bonface Oluoch with a low shot after outpacing Shakava with three minutes to the break.

Youngster Amos Nondi replaced Kenyan international Eric Ouma – who limped off injured – in the beginning of the second half.

Both teams came into the second half in search of a winner but it’s the 15-time champions who scored the next goal.

Nondi was particularly sensational having replaced Ouma and ultimately found the back of the net in the 56th minute. Gor piled on more pressure on the high-flying visitors and George Odhiambo put the score beyond doubt in the 74th minute.

Jacques Tuyisenge, who had also played a role in the second goal, crossed for Odhiambo to slot past Kimera.

“The pressure is not off yet. We can afford to smile a little but the pressure still remains. When you are part of a team like Gor, there will always be pressure of one form or the other,” Gor coach Marcelo Ferreira said after the game.

    For a moment there, it seemed like deja vu. Nondi was superb and Ze Maria has some breathing space to get his act together. And we witnessed hooliganism in the VIP. Who said hooliganism is a preserve of Rassia bhang-smokers? #RealityCheck#

    A chemelil fc player was instructed to ensure the Erick Ouma was injured it was so sad to see how he kept on charging at the young boy whenever Marcelo had the ball. Hope the boy was not seriously injured. Otherwise congratulations for the good work boys keep it up.

  • Baraza instructed his defenders to brutally charge at Marcelo in a bid to cancel all crosses from the flanks. Oh my, the brutality perfectly worked against him. And that goal against Oluoch, was he paid to work towards a draw? I have a reason to believe so.

  • Tho. Nyasach Abaram,Nyasach Daudi Nysavh Sianga. Kata Jomur lewgi kama opaki. Kwa natolea sisi aibu. Funs not meni but i now is going come nest ball. Isokei sasa ambia sisi pabil ya Jaduong Sianga. Pesa otas. Nondi dhi chendo. Mimi nafuraha sana jana cos nasema jusi jusi ati hiyo mtoto pia promte ka Ous.
