In a testament to their enduring rivalry, Gor Mahia triumphed over AFC Leopards with a narrow 1-0 victory, extending their dominance in the Mashemeji Derby. Despite being reduced to ten men following goalkeeper Kevin Omondi’s dismissal in the 35th minute, Gor Mahia persevered, with Austin Odhiambo netting the solitary goal in the 25th minute after seizing upon a defensive error.

The match, held at the Nyayo National Stadium, attracted a fervent crowd, though tensions flared among partisan stewards during halftime. Despite Leopards’ efforts to capitalize on their numerical advantage and possession dominance, they were unable to breach Gor Mahia’s resolute defense. In a display of missed opportunities, Leopards’ Clifford Miheso and Hassan Beja squandered clear-cut chances, while Gor Mahia’s Benson Omalla notably failed to convert in the 82nd minute. The victory, marking a season double for Gor over Leopards, propels the FKF Premier League leaders closer to their 21st title, with 57 points accrued.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the league, Tusker FC secured a vital 1-0 win against Ulinzi Stars, elevating them to third place on the log with 46 points. Additionally, at the SportPesa Arena, Murang’a SEAL and Muhoroni Youth battled to a goalless draw, with the result seeing Muhoroni ascend to 16th place, one spot above relegation-threatened Shabana FC.
