Tusker won on penalties with a score of 4-1 after the match had ended 1-1 in regulation. Gor Mahia were missing key players Moses Otieno who had personal commitments, Dan Makori and Edwin Lavatsa (injuries).
Victor Ali Abondo had given Gor Mahia the lead with a well taken free kick in the 11th minute. Tusker came back into the game and snatched an equalizer via Brian Mandela in the 27th minute.
During the penalty shootout, Moses Odhiambo and Donald Mosoti saw their penaties blocked. Only Rama Salim scored from the spot.
All in all it was a balanced match. Teams struggled to complete passes and Gor Mahia’s defence did not look solid.
