Boniface Omondi and Bernard Ondiek's first half goals is all that the fringe K’Ogalo side needed to complete a double over their rivals in a clash that was marred by acts of hooliganism.
Wvyonne Isuza wasted a chance to bring Ingwe back into the game on the stroke of halftime after he missed his penalty kick. This was just a few moments after the game had been interrupted for ten minutes due to the crowd trouble.
What caught the eye of many Kenyans is how Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr managed to field a second string side and they still managed to beat AFC Leopards. Here are some of the comments from Kenyans.
Truth be told, Gor Mahia is in a league of their own. Playing as many matches - both local and continental - in a short stint and still managing to win the league with 6 matches to play is no small feat. Congratulations #Sirkal #MashemejiDerby @OfficialGMFC @AFCLeopards— Benjamin Wafula (@benjaminwafula) August 25, 2018
