In the penultimate match of the 2011 season, Gor Mahia and Sofapaka played to a scoreless draw. The match was played at the Nyayo national stadium on Saturday. Gor Mahia were the better side. They came close on several occasions with Dan Makori, Demonde Selenge all coming close only to be foiled by Sofapaka custodian Duncan Ochieng. Finishing in front of goal is something Kogalo will need to work on.
The draw means Gor Mahia finishes the league in 4th position with 48 points. One positive aspect is that they finished ahead of arch rivals AFC Leopards. Tusker coached by former Gor Mahia stopper and coach Sammy Omollo “Pamzo” have won the league. Congratulations to Pamzo. He has proven that he is a good coach when he is not under pressure. That means he is suitable for teams like Tusker that do not have a demanding fan base. At the other end of the table, both relegated teams are from Mombasa. Which means no road trips for Kogalo fans to the coast in 2012.
