Gor Mahia claimed Super Cup title after thrashing rivals AFC Leopards 3-0 on Sunday.

K'Ogalo looked the favourites from onset and after a barren first half, they took a deserved lead courtesy of Timothy Otiieno. Substitute Oliver Maloba, who came in his place, put the match beyond Ingwe when he finished a brilliant counter in the 76th minute with virtually his first touch of the ball.

Another substitute, John ‘Softie’ Ndirangu put the icing on the cake when he buried AFC Leopards with the third in the first minute of added time to trigger frenzied celebrations from the Green Army supporters.

AFC Leopards: Ian Otieno-16, Denis Sikhayi-30, Marcus Abwao-33, Joshua Mawira-19, Salim Abdalla-15, Ramadhan Yakub-3, Bernard Mang’oli-22, Duncan Otieno-26, Gilbert Fiamenyo-17, Allan Katerega-10, Vincent Oburu-25
