Kenya Premier League [KPL] champions Gor Mahia have lost 1-2 to Ugandan KCCA in the CECAFA Kagame Cup group stage match played on Friday 8 August at Amahoro Stadium.
Dan Sserunkuma’s early goal put Gor Mahia ahead before KCCA came from behind to confirm their lead.
Dan Sserunkuma never stop scoring
Gor Mahia started the match on a high note with a clear intention of emerging winners.
This was confirmed in the 27th minute when Musa Mohammed made a cross from the right flank to find the genius Dan Sserunkuma who unleashed a shot from inside the box to make the first goal for Gor Mahia.
In the 29th minute, Baba Kizito steered a counter attack with Timothy Otieno’s pass to score a goal which was nullified for offside.
KCCA coach sensed danger and made his early substitution in the 38th minute bringing in Brian Majwega for Bengo in a bid to change matters.
Gor made several attempts to widen their lead but KCCA’s push never allowed for change making KCCA go into the tunnel one goal behind.
KCCA came into the second half more energetic to ensure a complete ball control giving way to Brian Majwega to equalize in the 51st minute before Brian Umuny confirmed the lead in the 88th minute.
Williamson expressed his surprise at the loss
“I knew this team and we had studies it but it was a bit of a shock to lose this one, he said”.
Gor Mahia will need to win one game out if their remaining two to have any chance of getting a place in the quarter finals. To assure a quarter final place, they need at least 4 points. Williamson will need to rack his brains to come up with a strategy to overcome APR of Rwanda in the next game.
