Gor Mahia beat Bandari 2-1 in a Kenyan Premier League match played on Thursday 19 March at the Nairobi City Stadium to move three pints clear at the top of the Kenyan Premier League table.
Gor was the better side from the start with Abondo, Kagere, and Olunga having attempts on Bandari goal early in the match but they could not find a breakthrough in the opening minutes.
Gor’s persistent pressure finally paid off after 23 minutes of play as striker Michael Olunga fed his strike partner Meddie Kagere who calmly slotted past Bandari goalkeeper Wilson Obungu on his full debut to give Gor a much deserved lead.
The hosts’ lead however lasted for only five minutes as former Nairobi City Stars midfileder Lawrence Kasadha drew the Dockers level from a set piece curling the ball from the edge of the area past Boniface Onyango on Gor Mahia goal.
The two sides left for a breather with scores level in a half that Gor would have scored more goals had they been more clinical in front of goal.
Gor started stronger after the break making inroads into Bandari penalty area the pressure paid off once again on 62nd as Michael Olunga was brought down in the area and Ali Hassan Abondo stepped up to restore Gor’s lead from the spot.
The defending champions pressed on after the goal but could not find another goal a result that saw them bag three vital points and they sit comfortably at the apex of the Kenyan Premier League table.
