Gor Mahia hammer Muhoroni Youth 3-0 and claim League Title

Post by faraja »

Report from Pulse Live
Gor Mahia clinched the Football Kenya Premier League title for the 21st time after a decisive match against Muhoroni Youth, securing a CAF Champions League spot.
Gor Mahia has successfully retained the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) title winning it for the 21st time in the club’s history.

K'Ogalo defeated Muhoroni Youth 3-0 on Sunday, ensuring they retain the title with three matches remaining in the season, thanks to goals from Benson Omala, Boniface Omondi, and Austin Odhiambo.

With their triumph, Gor Mahia have made a dramatic turnaround over the course of the season to clinch the title.

Kenya Police FC were the main challengers for the title but their loss to Tusker on Saturday meant that Gor Mahia needed one point in their last four matches to be crowned champions.

Gor Mahia have now qualified for next season's CAF Champions League; a feat which they surrendered last season after they failed to comply with club licensing requirements.

K'Ogalo were awarded a penalty in the 42nd minute and Omala stepped in but failed to convert the spot-kick as he sent the ball over the bar.

The former Western Stima man made amends two minutes later when he received a pass from inside the box before firing the ball into the empty net.


The second half was more lively compared to the opening stanza as Muhoroni found it difficult to unlock a resolute Gor Mahia defence.

K'Ogalo managed to extend their lead in the 48th minute when Boniface Omondi rushed to the ball and made it 2-0.


The visitors squandered half-chances at the other end of the pitch as Muhoroni grew increasingly frustrated.


Muhoroni continued to push for their first goal of the match but they were leaving spaces behind their defence and they were punished by Austin Odhiambo who made it 3-0 with Ronny Onyango providing the assist.


Gor Mahia eased off the throttle somewhat and nearly added a fourth in the 80th minute when Wangai provided a low cross from the right which was Patrick Kaddu failed to convert.

The CS further acknowledged the team's past struggles with FIFA sanctions, which previously hindered their participation in international competitions, and shared his optimism for the future.
