Edwin Musyoki grabbed the match winner within four minutes of entering the field of play as Gor Mahia downed Muhoroni 1-0 in the KPL U 20 quarterfinal clash played this Tuesday at Camp Toyoyo.
Gor Mahia were slow to assert their dominance in the match as Muho forceda couple efforts on target.
Gor’s best chance saw a tricky curling effort from Hillary Ojwang stinging the crossbar on its way out in the balanced first half action.
Muho kicked the second half on a double change with Kamau Peter and Andrew Victor sent on but the first half slow encounter proved the case in the early exchanges of the final half.
The first chance at goal however fell on Gor. Teddy Osok beat his marker but his deft cross close range got cleared despite causing a brief confusion at Muho’s goal mouth.
Gor’s mounting dominance almost paid off at the hour mark but keeper Taribo West did well to turn behind a fierce shot from Hillary Ojwang.
Alexander Abok was next in the guilty list as he poked over the bar from close range as Gor Mahia got of the hook at the far end.
Nashon Thiong’o should have scored from arguably the games best chance but the competition’s joint top scorer went for far too much after beating the keeper, allowing Muho back line to clear their lines for a corner.
Osok Out for Musyoki
Gor Mahia opted to rejig the team a bit as a Teddy Osok, visibly on his last legs was replaced by Edwin Musyoki.
A move that would pass for a normal build up play later saw the new entrant pick up a backward pass from his captain Alpha Onyango, it however turned the master stroke that unlocked the clash.
The midfielder had perhaps noted of the keeper’s struggles in dealing with first time shot and when his 80th minute shot from range proved the case as it slipped between the keeper’s grasp .
Muho intent was well blunted by the late goal and Gor’s quest for doubling the result ended with another chance crashing off the bar.
The victory was ultimately realised as Gor claim a semid spot for the third time of the competition.
