In a match played in fromt of a large crowd, a goal in each half enabled Kogalo to sink league leaders Tusker by 2 goals to nil. The team seems to have hit a rich vein of form, following hot on the heels of their 4-1 demolition of Chemelil last week.
George “Blackberry” Odhiambo opened the scoring when he dribbled through a maze of Tusker defenders staving off a series of tackles and leaving the Tusker defenders stunned and confused before unleashing a left footer which beat the Tusker keeper all the way
Kevin Omondi notched the second goal when he finished off a swift counter attacking move in the 86th minute. Baldwin Ngwa picked up a through ball from Francis Ocholla. He then squared to George Odhiambo who in turn back heeled to Kevin Omondi. Upon finding himself with wide open space, Omondi planted the ball safely in the far corner of the net, leaving the Tusker keeper hopeless.
The win saw Kogalo climb to 3rd position, only 5 points behind the new league leaders, Ulinzi. The win also came just as Tusker coach James Nandwa was quoted in the papers as saying that he did not think that the young Kogalo players had what it takes to challenge for the league.
Renewed optimisn now encapsulates the Kogalo faithful who see an opportunity to regain the glory they havent seen in a decade and a half.
