Gor Mahia stage comeback to see off spirited Zoo

Kenya Premier League defending Champions Gor Mahia bounced back to winning ways after coming from behind twice to beat resilient Zoo FC 3-2 at Green Stadium Kericho.

Gor Mahia proceeded to this clash seeking to pick the seventh win over Zoo in eight attempts. The Green Army had never lost to Zoo FC, the closest the latter came to beating Gor was in November 2017 when they drew 1-1.

Since then Gor Mahia had collected five wins, scoring 17 goals and conceded just three goals. Steve Polack charges had kept three straight clean sheets in the last three dates against Zoo.

The sides spent the opening minutes of the clash sizing up each other.  As they entered the 20’s Zoo FC had forced Gor Mahia FC  keeper into making a massive save while Mathew Odongo’s strike rattled the post. Three minutes later, Gor Mahia found themselves behind after allowing Kepha Ondati to rise and head Zoo FC into the lead.

Zoo FC held for a 1-0 lead at halftime.  In the final half, Gor Mahia FC introduced Samuel Onyango for Clifton Miheso. The change seemed to pay off they leveled to the scores following a header from Elvis Ranock at the 54th minute.

Zoo restore their lead after Odongo scored off an individual brilliant effort. He dribbled into the penalty area before slotting the ball past Odhiambo. Former Zoo FC attacker Nicholas Kipkirui returned to haunt his former employers cutting their celebrations with a tap-in goal at the 77 minute.

It was after a mix-up in the 18-yard box.  Gor Mahia would arrest their two match winless streak thanks to a late winner by Samuel Onyango.  The win puts Gor Mahia on 48 points on top of the log.
