Boniface Omondi's 25th minute strike, the difference in the 90th Mashemeji derby


In a match played against Gor Mahia, the 19th time winner of the Mashemeji Derby, last afternoon at Kasarani Stadium, Gor Mahia extended their five-year unbeaten streak over AFC Leopards.

Ingwe were handed their first loss of the season after losing 1-0 to Kogallo. It was old boy Boniface Mwangi's strike in the 25th minute that made all the difference in the game as Gor Mahia maintained their unbeaten start to the 2021/2022 football Kenya Federation Premier League season. The dimunitive winger capitalised on a defensive and goalkeeping error to hand For mahia the lead. 

Boniface Omalla almost scored the second goal for Gor Mahia, but it hit the upright and back into play, which was then cleared out of danger.

Saad Musa was exceptional in the middle of the park, but their main undoing was cutting in front of Gor Mahia's goal.

The win proved vital for Gor Mahia since it was their 19th derby win, also their second straight win of the season (2 straight wins in 2 matches) and they are currently fifth in the league standings, a point behind first-placed Ulinzi Stars.

Ingwe are currently 8th in the league with one win, one draw and one loss after 3 matches.
