Kogalo picked up three crucial points on their visit to western province. The match was played at Mumias complex after KPL deemed Bukhungu stadium unsuitable.
Kogalo’s resident “rastafarian” , Moses Odhiambo, making a comeback to the starting lineup was once again the pivotal player, creating havoc in the Stima defence each time he touched the ball. In the 37th he set up Ochomo with a glorious chance but Ochomo missed the chance. 7 minutes later, he ran dangerously into the Stima goal area but his goalbound shot was blocked.
Western Stima played with one less player after one of their players was red-carded in the 55th minute. Kevin Omondi, Demonde Selenga and Haji Mwachoki fcame on for Dan Makori, Moses Odhiambo and Wycliffe Ochomo respectively
The match seemed destined for a goalless draw when substitute Kevin Omondi powered home a thunderous drive from 30 yards in the 85th minute.
The match gave Kogalo fans something to celebrate especially those who attended the match. It was welcome news especially after fracas ensued when Gor Mahia fans travelling convoy was attacked as they travelled through Luanda in western Kenya.
Gor Mahia are still in 3rd place with 34 points.
