After losing 2-1 to Zambia’s Green Eagles in the quarter finals played in Kigali, Rwanda yesterday, Gor Mahia have been eliminated from the CECAFA Kagame Cup
Shadreck Mulungwe scored the winner in the second half as Eagles completed their comeback having gone down to a second minute Nicholas Kipkurui goal.
Kipkurui pounced on a defensive mess to give K’Ogalo an early lead to face the keeper one on one and chip it over.
Gor tried to take some control back in the game with the tempo rising and came close in the 22nd minute but Samuel Onyango failed to land in a quality delivery off a freekick.
In the second half, Gor Mahia came back with a similar tact of getting back up early and in the 50th minute they had a chance through dangerman Kipkurui but his shot flew straight into the keeper’s arms.
Gor were defeated when Mulungwe went past the defense to score what would turn out to be the winner in the 68th minute, barely eight minutes after coming on.
