Gor Mahia held by Zoo Kericho 1-1

Gor Mahia and Zoo Kericho settled for a 1-1 draw at Afraha stadium on Sunday. Coach Kerr gave opportunities to several players who have not had chances throughout the season. The exceptions were Kagere and Tuyisenge who are still chasing the golden boot.

First chance for Gor Mahia fell into the hands of Oliver Maloba but he did not do good enough to beat only Vincent Misikhu in goal in the 8th minute. Anthony Mbugua on his part showed some brilliant touch with the ball but his final shot was too timid to trouble Zoo keeper.

Zoo were presented with their first chance when Nicholas Kipkirui put a through ball for Geofreey Gichana but the midfielder failed to connect into the net in the 17th minute. Kipkirui again showed intent in the 29th minute when he effortlessly went past stagnant Joash Onyango for his shot to go off target finally.

The affair remained less dramatic towards the end of first half thus the score remained 0-0 as the teams went back to the tunnel.

The second half came with Zoo getting the first corner that was taken by Chetambe but his delivery was not clinical enough. Wellingtone Ochieng stopped Kipkirui from wrecking havoc in the 50th minute. A one two between Tuyisenge and Kagere failed to open the score as the later failed to connect well in the final stage of the move.

Meddie Kagere finally scored for Gor Mahia in the 62nd minute when he volleyed the ball into the net as he intercepted a Boniface Omondi flick. Gichana turned the assist maker when he passed a sumptuous ball to Kepha Ondati for the later to equalize in the 75th minute.

Starting XI: Shaban Odhoji, Innocent Wafula, Joash Onyango, Wellington Ochieng , Mike Simiyu, Philemon Otieno, Anthony Mbugua, Boniface Omondi , Oliver Maloba, Meddie Kagere, Jacques Tuyisenge,

  1. This was to be expected after a reported go-slow by players over unpaid allowances and threats by coach to quit if no action is taken.Anyway issorait league wasekao but am disappointed Masoud Juma an FkF protege is leading the golden boot award with 15 goals so far 3 more than both kagere and tuyisenge.That accolade befits a player from league winning team not 8th placed team.Kogalo strikers do something in the remaining two games to correct that anomaly…

  2. @ jasego, maybe that is what we need …………. shami mwinyi of thika, Jeremiah wanjala of homeboyz, Crispin oduor of mathare and masoud juma of sharks are the names that have been proposed to the club for signing in 2018….so it could be a blessing in disguise !!!

  3. But if you ask me….I think danson kago of tusker, Paul were formerly of tusker and Khalid aucho is all what we need . Hope my prayers come through……

    1. Add Humphrey Mieno who’s contract is coming to an end snc experience in CAF is of utmost importance & Ovella Ochieng together with left back Pascal Ogweno both of sharks and we set

    1. I think that EC have been paying the allowances. Although there could be some delays in payments, the allowances are finally paid by the same EC.
