Kakamega Homeboyz beat Gor Mahia

Kakamega Homeboyz beat Gor Mahia

This fixture has always been a platform for Kakamega Homeboyz boss Cleopahs Shimanyula to stump some authority in the press box but he chose a silent mode this time.

The talking though, for Shimanyula, seems to have been left for the pitch with Homeboyz matching their visitors from minute one. In what was a reserved approach from coach Nicholas Muyoti, they were to take the lead in the 20th minute through Shami Kibwana, the former Thika United man beating Boniface Oluoch after beating a series of Gor players.

In their known style, Gor Mahia waited until the 43rd minute when they responded through Nicholas Kipkirui.

Homeboyz were never going to take things lying down and they regained their lead in the 66th minute through Ali Bai.

The loss pushes Gor back to fourth  with 32 points after playing three games than their opponents; Tusker leading with 37 points after their win over Bandari in the day with Homeboyz placed second a point below the leaders.
