Gor Mahia settled the scores with Rangers FC on Thursday evening by beating them 3-1. The Kogalo 2011 season had started unceremoniously when they went down 3-0 to Rangers in the first league game. On Thursday evening however, Kogalo appeared determined to revenge.
The first goal came in only two minutes via a stroke of luck. Anthony Akumu sent a pass to Dan Makori whose shot went into the net with the keeper expecting him to cross. John Kiplagat scored the second via one of his trademark “ballistic” missiles after receiving a pass from Musa Mohammed. And before Rangers could regroup, Anthony Akumu scored the third after 17 minutes following a goalmouth melee, Rangers pulled one back after 29 minutes.
Gor Mahia continued to outplay Rangers in the early stages of the second half with Lavatsa missing a gilt edged chance or two. Gor Mahia are now in fourth place with 44 points. Scoring three goals will be a welcome change for the team that has been struggling to put the ball in the net. Kogalo now needs one of the strikers to step up as a dependable goal getter.
