Gor and Sofapaka make Charity Cup final



Gor Mahia and Sofapaka qualified for the final of the Kenya Power Charity Cup with identical 2-1 wins over Mathare United and Western Stima at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani on Saturday.

With four teams battling it out for honours in the one day event, Gor kicked off proceedings with Ivan Anguyo’s last gasp header giving them a 2-1 win over Mathare in a hard-fought encounter.

The slum boys had taken the lead through Gabriel Ndura’s wonderfully taken first half goal after a delightful cutback by Jospeh Mwangi. Gor levelled just before halftime after referee Damaris Kimani awarded them a penalty after Lloyd Wahome and Rama Salim tangled for the ball in the area. Dan Sserunkuma stepped up to equalize.

Having started the match slowly, Gor were by far the better in the second half creating several chances with new signing Mungai Kiongera in the thick of the action.

With seven substitutes allowed in the match, coach Zdravko Logarusic threw on Anguyo and with a minute of regulation time remaining, the Ugandan powerfully headed home a Sserunkuma cross to eke out victory.

In the second match, Dennis Onkangi gave Stima the lead with Obadiah Tarumbwa equalizing after a mistake by Stima goalkeeper Robert Mandela. The 2009 league champions took the lead just before the break when veteran Titus Mulama was put through and he calmly slotted the ball home.

Gor will play Sofapaka who beat Western Stima 2-1 in the second match in the final later Saturday. The winner will walk away with Kshs840,000 while the runners up will get Kshs480,000.
