πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ Kenya Premier League: Gor Mahia thump Zoo to move up the table, Ulinzi shoot down Mathare

Gor Mahia moved up to seventh on the Kenya Premier League standings with a comfortable 3-0 win over Zoo Kericho on Wednesday afternoon.

The Kenya Premier League defending champions were stunned 1-0 last time out against Western-based Vihiga United but came out roaring at the Kasarani Stadium. 

Gor got their opener in the 10th minute, and it was the in-form Samuel Onyango who scored with a thunderous shot from outside the box. 

Manuel Vaz Pinto's men dominated the early exchanges and exploiting open spaces with good runs. 

It was no surprise they scored a second through captain Kenneth Muguna just after the half-hour mark, even though the goal was initially thought to have been an Ezekiel own goal. 

Gor took a 2-0 lead going into the break and continued with their dominance in the second half. 

They however had to wait until the 92nd minute for their third, and it arrived courtesy of Sydney Ochieng'. 

The win saw Gor move too 12 points, nine off league leaders KCB, who are on 21 points. 

This could however change if Gor wins their two matches at hand, with their next assignment away against Bandari.

In another match, Ulinzi Stars beat Mathare United 2-1 at the Utalii Grounds. 

The match was an evenly balanced affair, but the Soldiers emerged victorious with a goal in each half.

They were the first to get off the blocks, and it took them just seven minutes to grab an opener, which was scored by Daniel Waweru.

Michael Otieno swung in a delicious cross, and Waweru scuffed in a shot with Job Ochieng making a poor attempt at holding on to the ball. 

It was the only goal that separated the two sides at half-time, with two more goals coming in the last 20 minutes. 

First, Elvis Nandwa got to the end of Masita Masuta’s cross and headed home to double Ulinzi's lead.

Daniel Otieno though halved the scores with two minutes of normal time remaining, but it only proved a consolation as the Soldiers picked maximum point.
