Super class Gor Mahia smash Nzoia to maintain league summit

Superb! High Flying! Meticulous! League Leaders! Gor Mahia! Dyllan Kerr charges harvested maximum points against Nzoia at Moi Stadium, Kisumu in a 4-0 charged encounter.

George 'Blackberry' Odhiambo teed up Jacques Tuyisenge in the 26th minute to open the score for the home side.  Kagere scored the second goal for KoGalo from a well taken 20 yard free kick by Kenneth Muguna.

Nzoia had their first serious attempt in the ninth minute after Victor Omondi's shot on target was parred by Fredrick Onyango over bar for a corner. The keeper was alert to deal with the resultant corner.

Meanwhile Blackberry had to be attended to by Medics after an ugly collision with Edwin Wafula. The teams earlier in the first half packed highly their midfield but Nzoia should have really gone ahead after Wakanya delivered a fabulous cross for Masita to put it past Onyango but the goal was adjudged offside.

The goals for Gor Mahia unsettled the Millers that their midfield and defense became porous. Gor thus resulted in applying long balls in search of another goal. Boniface Omondi would have had his name in the score sheet but was denied by meticulous Mustapha.

Charged Nzoia

Nzoia came off from the break and registered a first corner that was taken by Lawrence Juma but his delivery was poor. Blackberry had his shot near the far post denied by Mustapha who punched it away after a quick Gor run.

Lost Penalty

Wakanya failed to pay for Nzoia's hard fight after he sent his penalty straight to the hands of Onyango who punched it and Harun Shakava cleared it away from the area. The keeper had been punished for tangling Masuta in the box and was also yellow carded.

Gor launched a counter with Tuyisenge on the drive. He gave the pass to Jean Baptiste who sent his bullet like shot that was punched by Mustapha. He did not erred with his second adding the third for the host in the 58th minute. Kahata made his contribution upon introduction and stretched the match beyond Nzoia's reach  in the 64th minute after Tuyisenge put in a good cross.
