Meddie Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge continued to press the brewers but the champions’ defense led by Martin Kiiza did the best to keep the opponents at bay. It could have been 1-0 in favour of the hosts in the 42nd minute, but Collins Okoth missed a glorious opportunity as his left footed shot went wide.
After the break, Paul Nkata’s charges came back stronger and could have gone ahead in the 57th minute, but Michael Khamati’s goal bound effort was cleared off the line by Haron Shakava. In the 65th minute, Kahata missed the target by several inches as his fierce effort came off the woodwork with the goalkeeper well beaten.
It was a costly miss as the brewers took the lead in the 76th minute. The visitors won the free kick in a promising position, and Allan Wanga made no mistake. The result means Gor Mahia end the season seven points behind the champions who will now represent the country in the 2017 Caf Champions league.
