Gor Mahia started the 2015 KPL season on a bright note beating Mathare United 4-2. Returnee Ali Abondo has been in fine scoring form since he returned. It was he who fired Gor Mahia in front early when a Mathare defender ended up in a mixup with his goalkeeper leaving Abondo with an easy task to put Gor Mahia ahead.

Mathare equalized via a Noah Abich penalty after defender Haron Shakava was adjudged to have committed a foul.

On the stroke of half time, Michael Olunga sent Gor Mahia fans into raptures when he reclaimed the lead for Gor Mahia by heading home a free-kick taken by Rwandese new signing Abouba Sibomana.

But Stubborn Mathare kept coming back and equalized. Once again it was Noah Abich who scored to tie the scores at two, this time via a free kick.

Gor Mahia pushed forward in search of  a third goal. The addition of Meddie Kagere added impetus to Gor Mahia. The Rwandese striker was impressive in his official debut. Their efforts were rewarded when once again Ali Abondo placed himself in the right place at the right time to score from a Godfrey Walusimbi cross. Michael Olunga sealed the score in the 79th minute following a pass from the impressive Kagere.

Olunga will be happy to have finally lived up to expectations and repayed the faith that coach Nuttall put in him. Ali Abondo appears much more focused than he was when he last played for Gor Mahia. His movement off the ball is good.  In midfield Khalid Aucho tried but was overworked especially when Harrison Mwendwa came on. He gave the Gor Mahia rear-guard plenty to worry about. Aucho will welcome the return of Collins Okoth who is likely serving a suspension.

All in all a good start for Gor Mahia which rarely scores four goals. The forwardline which looked blunt during pre-season is starting to gain a measure of cohesion. There is still plenty of work for Nuttall to do before the team hits top form.

Dan Ssserunkuma and Geoffrey Kizito take on SoNy Sugar

Gor Mahia returned to domestic action with a 1 – 0 win over SoNy Sugar in the two teams’ Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match played at the Nairobi City Stadium on Sunday 24 August, a win that was heavily aided by the visitors’ keeper Lucas Indeche’s 57th minute mistake.

Timothy Otieno got the first sight on goal for the KPL champions on the fifth minute when he robbed Alfred Onyango of the ball but he took too long to make a decision and his eventual option of passing to his strike partner Dan Sserunkuma came late and Onyango recovered to clear.

Gor Mahia threat

Action was stuck in the visitors’ goal area and Indeche was called upon on 16 minutes to smother George Odhiambo’s free kick after he was fouled by Andrew Anthony 20 yards out and four minutes later Harun Shakava’s header from Kennedy Ayong’s corner flew wide.

Gor Mahia skipper Jerim Onyango pulled a great save on 22 minutes when in a one on one situation with Edwin Oduor – the striker shot well but Jerim just took a timely touch and Harun Shakava raced in to clear the danger.

Wasted chances

Five minutes to the break, Timothy Otieno had another good chance after getting to the end of George Odhiambo’s cross but he blasted wide when he just had Indeche to beat and just before half time Eric Ochieng fed Sserunkuma in the box but Indeche made a decent save.

The ensuing surge forward saw Andrew Anthony well poised and he managed to beat Jerim Onyango as the Gor Mahia defence went missing but the SoNy Sugar man’s touch was too heavy and the ball sailed clear of any danger.

Moment of madness

Indeche’s moment of madness came on 56 minutes when he handled the ball, placed it down and picked it again to give away a free kick in the box and Geoffrey Kizito stepped forward to steer the ball home for the only goal of the game.

Gor Mahia had the chance to double the advantage after Kizito picked out Sserunkuma with a great pass on the 74th minute but the league’s top scorer, faced with just Indeche, went for power and lacked precision and his attempt flew high.

The result saw Gor Mahia reclaim top spot with two matches in hand and with 41 points while SoNy Sugar stays rooted in ninth place with 28 points after 22 matches.

Kogalo picked up three crucial points on their visit to western province. The match was played at Mumias complex after KPL deemed Bukhungu stadium unsuitable.

Kogalo’s resident “rastafarian” , Moses Odhiambo, making a comeback to the starting lineup was once again the pivotal player, creating havoc in the Stima defence each time he touched the ball. In the 37th he set up Ochomo with a glorious chance but Ochomo missed the chance. 7 minutes later, he ran dangerously into the Stima goal area but his goalbound shot was blocked.

Western Stima played with one less player after one of their players was red-carded in the 55th minute. Kevin Omondi, Demonde Selenga and Haji Mwachoki fcame on for Dan Makori, Moses Odhiambo and Wycliffe Ochomo respectively

The match seemed destined for a goalless draw when substitute Kevin Omondi powered home a thunderous drive from 30 yards in the 85th minute.

The match gave Kogalo fans something to celebrate especially those who attended the match. It was welcome news especially after fracas ensued when Gor Mahia fans travelling convoy was attacked as they travelled through Luanda in western Kenya.

Gor Mahia are still in 3rd place with 34 points.
