Ten man Gor Mahia fought to hold Chemelil sugar in a match played at “Old Trafford” in Naivasha. The match was played to an empty stadium as punishment for Gor Mahia crowd troubles.
Only two minutes into the game, Chemelil were awarded a penalty follwoing a handball by Chris Wekesa. Victor Ochieng saw his kick saved by Jerim Onyango in the Kogalo goal. On the stroke of halftime, Eric Masika was sent off for a second bookable offence.
In the second half, Kogalo playing a man down , dropped into a defensive formation as Chemelil piled the pressure in search of a winner.
Gor Mahia and Chemelil are now tied on 38 points. The next match will be the FKL cup final against Sofapaka on Wedensday. With the match only two days away, it probably would have been advisable for Kogalo to rest their key players on Monday. Hopefully fatigue will not be an overwhelming factor.
