Gor Mahia closed the gap between them and leagues leaders Tusker FC with an easy 4-0 win over Chemelil Sugar FC in Kisumu on Wednesday 15 January.
Gor Mahia came into the game on a back of a loss and anything other than a win against a struggling Chemelil side was never going to go well with their fans.
As expected, Gor started brightly with Samuel Onyango being the guy that brought the threat in the visitor’s attack. In the third minute, he was to shoot straight at the Chemelil keeper as his team broke loose before having his goal ruled out by the second assistant in the 10th minute after an offside call.
Onyango’s efforts were to pay in the 20th minute when he was to tuck in a Lawrence Juma pass this after some nice work by captain Kenneth Muguna.
Gor could have easily bagged a series of goals in the half but the lack of an out to out striker seems to have hampered the visitors progress with a lot of cross from both wings going begging; Chemelil lucky to keep the one-goal margin as the game headed for a breather.
Just as it was in the first half, Onyango was to double his and Gor's tally two minutes after the resumption with coach Pollack deciding to rest youngster Tobias Otieno for Ernest Wendo after the goal.
Substitute Boniface Omondi and Nicholas Kipkurui were to add other goals for Kogalo with the win pushing their points tally to 35; just two points behind leaders Tusker.
The league takes recess this week to pave way for the Shield competition with Gor's next league tie coming against Bandari on 25th January.
