Gor Mahia tame Leopards



Defending champions Gor Mahia edged past rivals AFC Leopards 2-1 to book their ticket to the final of the FKF Cup in at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Saturday.

Gor suffered a setback early into the match as they had to substitute dependable striker Dan Sserenkuma due to injury and threw Edwin Lavatsa into the fray.

Kevin Omondi rose to the occasion in the 12th minute after a move orchestrated by keeper Ivo Mapunda from the own half to score the first goal of the match against run of play.

Leopards created a chance at the half hour mark but Donald Mosoti cut out Paul Were’s cross that was intended to find Allan Wanga.

With the pressure escalating on Gor, Joseph Njuguna went into the referee book for a reckless tackle with 37 minutes played.

Gor Mahia had the momentum after the break and they doubled the lead seven minutes into the second half courtesy of a goal from captain Moses Odhiambo.

Jimmy Bageya will have himself to blame for fluffing his chance in the 70th minute but Charles Okwemba reduced the arrears on 82 minutes converting Edwin Wafula’s cross.

Gor Mahia will face the winner of the second semifinal tie that pits Tusker against Sofapaka on Sunday.
