Gor Mahia drew 1-1 away to Leones Vegeterianos of Equatorial Guinea thus finishing with a 3-1 aggregate score. The match was the second leg of the preliminary round of the 2018 Africa champions league.
The Equatoguineans took the lead in the 55th minute and pressed for another goal to force penalties. Gor Mahia fought back and scored when a Leones defender deflected a Francis Kahata corner into his own net. Gor Mahia scored again in injury time but the goal was disallowed.
The result allows them to move into the first round where they will face Esperance de Tunis. It promises to be a stern test. Esperance eliminated ASAC Concorde of Mauritania 6-1 on aggreegate. So they appear to be in the same kind of form they were in 2014 when they last met Kogalo.
