Nzoia Sugar 1-3 Gor Mahia: K'Ogalo open a seven point lead at the top
Gor Mahia hit the 40-point mark following the victory, their fourth in Kisumu this season

Gor Mahia opened a seven-point lead at the top of the Kenyan Premier League table after downing Nzoia Sugar 3-1 on Sunday.

K’Ogalo had won all the past three matches against the sugar men, scoring six goals in the process and conceding none. With Dylan Kerr aiming at extending the unbeaten league outing, the visitors were definitely in trouble.

After missing several opportunities, the champions eventually hit the opener in the 30th minute after a good pass by Humphrey Mieno.

Jacques Tuyisenge headed in the team's second after a good corner by George Odhiambo before the Rwandan striker completed his brace after a perfect job by Meddie Kagere.

Brian Otieno scored what turned out to be a consolation for the home team as Gor Mahia continued to dominate.
