Gor win as league takes a break

The Kenya premier league takes a month’s break after a weekend full of mixed results.
Yesterday afternoon Gor Mahia clawed flower men Karuturi sports to console their fans over their 1-0 midweek loss to their perennial rivals Ingwe.In their well attended home tuff -city stadium - Gor Mahia looked comfortable with neat passes and urgency to score only to be denied by the experienced Noah Ayuko a number of times.
In the 64th minute, Kevin Omondi who is slowly taking over Blackberry’s soft spot in the hearts of the Gor fans curled home a superb free kick to send the City stadium to a powerful rumble.
The win elevates Gor mahia above Afc leopards who failed to click away in Chemelil.

Later at the same venue, Mathare united elongated their unbeaten run when they were held to a 2 all draw by Thika united. Simon Mburu and Tololwa sent the slum boys into an early lead silencing the Gor fans who were in favor of Thika united. Conversely, Tololwa’s goal was hugely disputed for off side.

Gor mahia fans could be said to having walked home with double victory when Thika united registered a beautiful comeback to hold the slum boys to a two all draw to the ecstasy of Gor fans.Mathare should have themselves to blame for numerous lost scoring chances coupled with their poor handling of high balls which contributed to their second demise in the game.
Despite their unbeaten run, Mathare’s winning formula seems to have followed their suspended coach Kimanzi as Mathare have registered a disappointing 9 draws in their 15 outings, a record not known to be associated with the masters of beautiful football.

On Saturday Tusker received a check on their lead with a 1-0 loss in the hands of the soldiers Ulinzi in Nakuru.Tusker who are the league pace setters go into the break with Ulinzi breathing fire right on their back 2 points less.Geoffrey Kokoyo converted a 37th minute cross to acquire a much deserved win for Ulinzi.

Away in Kakamega at the Bukhungu stadium Western stima registered a dramatic come back to win 3-2 against a stunning Mahakama. Mahakama went ahead 2-0 in the first thirty minutes only for the win to be relinquished by the courts men. Wesley Kemboi’s brace cancelled Bernard Mbeki and Clifford Alwanga’s efforts to go level before Brian Masiolo gave the westerners something to jubilate to as the match ended 3-2 in favor of Western Stima.

Across the fence in Chemelil Afc leopards fresh from their big win over Gor held Chemelil sugar to a barren draw.Afc should thank Kenya’s current number one goalkeeper Lawrence Webo for his heroic saves which kept them in the game throughout the 90 minutes to justify his number one jersey.

Else where Nairobi City stars were held to a 1 -1 draw by Kenya commercial bank –KCB- while Red berets and new comers Posta rangers settled for a 1-1 draw.

The premier league takes a break with a bright future and hope of stadiums filled with fans and more revenue for the teams.
