Ouma over the moon after win



Sofapaka coach David Ouma was over the moon after his side beat Gor Mahia 6-5 on penalties after 1-1 draw in regulation time to clinch the inaugural Kenya Power Charity Cup, on Saturday.

Enterprising Paul Kiongera, who was voted the Man of the Match, put Gor ahead with a stunning free-kick on the 32nd minute but Elly Asieche notched an equaliser for Sofapaka in the 73rd minute after combining well with burly striker Enock Agwanda.

It was indeed a sweet revenge for Batoto Ba Mungu, who lost 3-0 on penalties to Gor in last year’s FKF/President’s Cup finals, at Nyayo National Stadium.

Anthony Kimani, James Situma, Koko Manupi, George Owino, Collins Shivachi and Kennedy Oduor scored for the 2009 KPL champions with Dancun Ochieng saving Kiongera’s spot-kick. Speaking after the titanic encounter, Ouma could not hide his joy.

“Although we did not give Gor a tough challenge, I am happy with the performance and that’s an indication of a good season ahead of us,” said Ouma. “It was a collective effort and everybody gave his best. I am pleased we have started the season with a trophy.”

On their way to the final, Sofapaka defeated Western Stima 2-1 in the second semi-final as Gor edged Mathare United with the same margin. For winning the trophy, Sofapaka pocketed Kshs 850,000 as Gor received Kshs 510,000
