Scorer: Meddie Kagere

A goal by veteran striker Meddie Kagere enabled Gor Mahia to escape with a 1-0 victory over Kakamega Homeboyz at Afraha stadium on Saturday. Kagere justified the calls of fans who have been calling for him to be given more playing time when he sublimely finished off an assist from Karim Nizigiyimana.

The Rwandese midfielder wheeled away in celebration, two fingers in the sky signifying his double bundle of joy just 20 minutes after coming on for George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo. He finished off a decent team move, tapping in unmarked from a yard out after being picked up by a Karim Nizigiyimana cross.

The win takes Gor to nine points, two ahead of Bandari and leaders AFC Leopards who will be playing on Sunday in Nakuru and Kisumu respectively.

Gor head coach Jose Marcelo Ferreira had been boosted with the return of Rwandese midfielder Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza who tucked in at the centre of the pack alongside Ernest Wendo with Kenneth Muguna playing infront of them.

In defense, the Brazilian coach had taken back Wellington Ochieng into the starting team with Joash Onyango who took his place in last weekend’s 2-1 loss to Western Stima missing.

It was a balanced start to the match with Gor having the first opportunity of the match, a 13th minute curling freekick by Godfrey Walusimbi which was tipped over the bar by Homeboyz keeper Mike Wanyika.

Ten minutes later, skipper Eston Esiye’s swirling shot from distance almost caught out Boniface Oluoch in the Gor goal but he managed to scamper the ball over for a corner.

Two minutes later, Oluoch had to pull an important intervention to cut out Wycliffe Ochomo who had been put through by a Stephen Wakyanya through ball.

The Homeboyz bench was up in arms calling for a foul on their striker but referee Andrew Juma heard none of it.

George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo should have taken his side into the lead but he wasted a glorious chance. A well weighted long pass from Wellington Ochieng released Odhiambo on the right with the winger cutting in, but his shot was blocked.

Almost immediately, Jacques Tuyisenge forced a great save off Wanyika with a header at the far post after the Rwandese rise well to meet a Walusimbi cross from the left.

Both sides passed the ball well around the field, but it was Gor who saw more of the possession with Oluoch left only to dictate terms to his backline.

Just before the referee whistled for half time, Mugiraneza rose high at the back post to meet a Walusimbi corner, but the ball went wide.

At the start of the second half, Ferreira hauled off Odhiambo and brought in goal scorer Kagere with Mugiraneza also coming off for Francis Kahata.

Kagere made his mark known 20 minutes later and K’Ogalo should have gone two up seven minutes later but were denied. From a Walusimbi free kick, Tuyisenge headed the ball into play from the back post but Kahata’s effort was blocked.

The ball fell graciously on defender Harun Shakava, but the ball came off the upright.

With 10 minutes to go, Muguna came close to his second goal in Gor colors but he wasted an opportunity after failing to shoot on his weaker left foot when he broke into the box allowing the Homeboyz defense to race back and clear.

Additional Reporting from futaa.com
Ahmed Bhai scored in the final quarter of the game as Kakamega Homeboyz stopped Gor Mahia’s winning streak after 1-1 draw as the sides faced off in Kenya Premier League match played at Moi Stadium Kisumu.

Moses Mudavadi delivered a cross from the left wing at the 82nd minute and Bhai connected it past Boniface Olouch into the net to end their search for a goal against Gor Mahia cancelling Meddie Kagere’s opener.

Opener

Gor Mahia had started the match strongly with Francis Kahata linking up with George Odhiambo who paced up on the left wing before delivering a low pass to the six yard box and Gor’s ‘prodigal son’ Kagere sent the ball direct into the net giving Kogalo a lead at the 12th minute of the game.

Kakamega homeboyz had their goal disallowed at the 20th minute of the game after Athmani Buki header was judged as offside by centre Referee Simuyu Dan and his assistants.

Chances

Just seconds before Wafula bent in a cross that went straight to Tuyisenge who was unmarked in the box but the forward headed the ball the wide despite being a free header. Kagere and Tuyisenge made a couple of touches before the latter delivered a through pass past Homeboyz back four at the 29th but Wafula Innocent slowly reacted to the ball.

Homeboyz had their chances in the game also with Abass Akinyemi picking up a loose ball and before delivering a pass to Bhai who set up Murunga but Gor Keeper Boniface Olouch denied him a chance to find the net punching the ball back to play.

Second half

In the second half Homeboyz started attacking strongly especially after coach Mike Muiruri introduced Andrew Kulecho, Meshack Karani and David Odhiambo. The side would have scored at the 66th minute but Odhiambo’s shot missed the goal by just an inch wasting the superb build up for the chance. In reply Kahata sent a shot that was deflected towards the goal by Chikati Michael but Michael Wanyika made a superb save to keep the side in game.

This is the second draw between these side in a Kenya Premier League match. Gor have moved to second with same points as Mathare United who have been pushed to third due to inferior goal difference.

Gor Mahia attacker Jacques Tuyisenge made a dream debut for the Kenyan giants as he scored one and assisted another as Gor Mahia thrashed Kakamega Homeboyz 3-0 in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) match played on Saturday 2 April in Mumias to register their first win of the season. Enock Agwanda, Tuyisenge and Jacob Keli did the job for new coach Jose ‘Ze Maria’ Fereira.

The champions took the lead in the first minute through Enock Agwanda, who smashed into the back of the net after being put through by debutant Jacques Tuyisenge. The Rwandan squandered a great opportunity to get on the score-sheet minutes later shooting wide while through on goal.

Homeboyz chances

Homeboyz slowly grew into the game towards the quarter hour mark pressing for an equalizer but Gor remained solid at the back denying skipper Martin Imbalambala and Andrew Kulecho in quick succession. The hosts made an early change hauling off former Muhoroni Youth midfielder Mike Khaduli for 2015 FKF Premier League top scorer, Keiphas Baraza in search of an equalizer.

Tuyisenge has a chance to double Gor’s lead at the half hour mark but the attacker shot wide while clear on goal after receiving a precise pass from Karim Nizigiyimana on the right. The teams left for a breather with Gor having a goal advantage.

Tuyisenge goal

Two minutes after the restart, Tuyisenge introduced himself to Gor Mahia faithful, capitalizing on a defensive lapse to double the visitors’ advantage and put Gor on course of their maiden win of the season. Substitute Francis Kahata nearly got on the score-sheet at the hour mark but Philip Odhiambo on Homeboyz goal did well to deny him on a one on one situation.

3-0

Gor dominated proceedings thereafter with Tuyisenge twice coming close to grabbing his second but was denied on both occasions by resolute defending by Homeboyz defenders. Tuyisenge’s dream debut was cut short in the 72nd minute as he hobbled off injured and was replaced by Jacob Keli who scored three minutes after coming on with a powerful header to complete Gor’s convincing win.
