Final Match Scores: Tusker FC 1 Gor Mahia 0
Scorer: Robert Omunuk.
Score Time: 40 Minutes.
In the first leg of the Top Eight Clubs played under floodlights at Nyayo National Stadium, Tusker FC have already secured an advantage by beating the green army 1-0 in a tightly contested game.
It was the Ugandan Import; Robert Omunuk who handed the brewers the special gift and in return silence the Kogallo fans who had thronged the Nairobi West Facility. That goal was important to the brewers since it handed them not only just a goal, but equally an away goal.
Gor Mahia’s import; the Tanzanian goal keeper Ivo Mapunda was between the posts at the time Omunuk rose above everyone to head in the winning goal in the 40th minute. Interestingly, Omunuk was definitely not the tallest of players inside the box.
Gor Mahia had a strategy of relying on counter attacks which did not effectively pay out. Gor struggled to break the brewers’ backline with one of their best chances coming up in the 79TH Minute, a Kelvin Omondi’s shot which went wide. The Final winner in the scheduled return leg is expected to meet either Thika United or Chemelil Sugar next Month when finals are played.
