Khalid Aucho opened his scoring account for Gor Mahia as they beat Chemelil Sugar 3-1 in a Kenyan Premier Match played on Sunday 22 March at the Nyayo Stadium from 1615hours.

Aucho, Ali Abondo and Meddie Kagere scored Gor’s goals while Meshack Karani scored Chemelil’s consolations goal.

Scare for Chemelil’s Onyango

Gor hit the ground running and in the third minute were awarded a corner that was brought in by Abondo but it was too wide. In the 11th minute, Fredrick Onyango punched the ball back into the field of play and it was picked by Michael Olunga who managed to hold off two Chemelil players before setting up Abondo who handled the ball before he could shoot and the whistle was blown.

There was a scare for Chemelil in the 12th minute when Onyango rushed out of the box to try and prevent Olunga from racing into the box but he missed the ball before fouling Olunga. He however was not sent off and was given a yellow card. The resulting free-kick was brought in by Abouba Sibomana and forced Onyango to tip the ball over the bar for a corner that was fruitless.

Aucho, Abondo score

In the 26th minute, Chemelil missed a chance to score after Karani was disposed in the box and the clearance found Stephen Wakhanya outside the box but he shot over the bar. In the 36th minute, Gor breathed a sigh of relief after Harun Shakava made a last minute tackle to deny Wakhanya a shooting chance inside the box. In the 41st minute, Kagere won a free kick that was brought in by Sibomana before it was cleared by Chemelil, it however found Aucho who exchanged passes with Olunga before he released a hard shot into the back of the net. Two minutes later, Olunga scored but the flag was already up.

When play resumed in the second half, Onyango was forced to make a finger tip save from a Sibomana free kick. A minute later, Gor doubled their lead through Abondo. This followed the subsequent corner that found Olunga in the box but his shot was blocked only for the rebound to fall on Abondo who made no mistake from the right side to give Gor their second goal.

Karani, Kagere score

In the 67th minute, Aucho missed a chance to hit a brace after a good Olunga found him in the box but his shot went wide. In the 80th minute, Olunga crossed in the box but with Onyango already out of his line, no Gor player could connect with the cross.

With four minutes to the final whistle, Chemelil pulled one back through Karani. This was after a Chemelil free kick that was brought in by Collins Kisuya and Boniface Oluah came off his line to try and pick the ball but Dennis Onkangi beat him to it before the latter pulled the ball back for Karani to put into the empty net.

Any hopes Chemeili may have had of a comeback were killed when Kagere scored his second goal and Gor’s third goal. Godfrey Walusimbi played a one-two with Olunga before the former made a run into the box but he was disposed by Kisuya with a sliding tackle only for the ball to find Kagere who made no mistake from close range.

The win means Gor now have nine points from three games while Chemelil have a single point, gained from their barren draw with AFC Leopards.

  1. Haiya Gor Mahia is reintroducing the 1980s score lines. Congratulations.
    To Jokogalo let’s secure the 2015 wage bill, let’s stop the begging, let’s show some PRIDE its time for Gor Mahialization complete with accountability & transparency.

    Meanwhile I would like to salute Ingo & ingwe for another stunning mathematical achievement.
    Convincing their players that a month is made up of 90 days and those who differ are promptly suspended.
    Kudos for discovering a new “ingwe” counting system.

  2. I told you people that this Nuttall is a good coach. I wish they could transfer this form to Brazzaville on Saturday.

  3. I watched that game. That Gor Mahia defence today was luck not to have conceded goals. In fact it is the chemelil attack that did not make good use of their chances. There were four instance where chemelil fc strikers had the ball right outside the eighteen yard box unmarked. If it were AC leopards then the scores would be different. Please improve before next weekend.

    1. As long as we are winning games with good margins, I do not see any problem in conceding goals as well. We just need to be consistent and win games even ugly.

  4. To be honest, I tend to agree with Blogger’s sentiment to a certain extent. He needed to specify (the central Defence). The coach needs to get his Central defence pairing spot on or we will soon get exposed. This is the last position that you want to experiment / tinker with in a team. Strong, mobile, quick and disciplined Central Defence pairing is the foundation that many Championship winning teams have been built on. The chemistry between Musa and Shakava as a central defence pairing seems not to be working fluently. Chemelil exploited that misunderstanding late on in the second half by playing long balls over the top. How Shakava and Musa failed to deal decisively with those balls is still a mystery to many. We have to get right the balance of our CENTRAL DEFENSIVE formation now if we want to cruise through in the Championship. The team has very little issues in terms of personnel. Olunga will soon get his rhythm on and I guess the only way is up for this team. It is always joyful to watch your beloved team annihilating teams and facing the so called rivals without fear. Kogalo has thrown the gauntlet to the so called pretenders to the throne, i.e. Tusker, Sofapaka, Ulinzi and Efusi. Did anybody see the mean determination that Kagere put last night? The man is surely playing for the shirt. He is playing for the badge and the fans cannot help but notice the name on the back. Both Abouba Sibomana and Nsigyimana have helped define the term “modern fullback” with their incessant marauding runs on the wings. Going by his last 2 performances, Gatusso wants his central defensive position back and the young Earnest Wendo now knows competition lies ahead. A happy and contented Gatusso will not be easy to displace though. Oluoch seems to have won the battle for the number 1 jersey and Jerry has to do with sitting on the bench.

    1. The good thing about the central position is that we have Glay and Emuge who can equally feel the central position

  5. Congrats boys. That was fantastic display.This team is good and can only get better. Wish the team all the best in Congo.
    I am not worried about nothing. For God and my beloved club – Kogallo

    1. Kudos to the Team i watched Gor play and was convinced that we are better only that we need to be consistent.

  6. I think that this team is jellying slowly but surely. As Mururi the Chemelil coach said ” Gor were ruthless and dangerous…” this he attributes to Gor playing continental matches. This is a plus for the team. Even if the team does not progress to the desired stages but something has been picked and it will leave an impact. Secondly, as they stay together for a longer period they force will finally be felt in the Continent. In the meantime let us continue to rally support behind our team.
