Gor too strong for Rangers
Kenyan Premier League side Gor Mahia handed recently-demoted Posta Rangers a 3-1 beating in their friendly match played on Tuesday at Nyayo National Stadium.
The match started with Gor visibly superior, with newly-signed Gor Mahia forward Paul Mungai Kiongera opening the scores in the 12th minute.
Kiongera was on the mark again eight minutes later, converting an awarded free-kick. One minute after the half-time break, Ugandan striker Dan Sserunkuma rode in from the left flank to tap in his side’s third.
Eight minutes into the second half, Rangers picked up some momentum that saw Aggrey Ongoli make a dash into the Gor Mahia box.
In a bid to tame him, Ivan Anguyo sent him tumbling to the ground with the referee pointing to the penalty spot. Edward Kauka offered to take the shot, which he easily sent past keeper Ivo Mapunda, who dove the wrong way.
Gor Mahia are preparing for the Confederations Cup preliminary first-leg match against Seychelles side Anse Reunion, set for on Saturday.
The return leg match will be played a fortnight later in Seychelles, with the winner progressing to the next round where they will meet Egyptian side ENPPI.
