Gor missed a penalty in the 27th minute after midfielder Humphrey Mieno squandered the chance.Omondi repaid the faith shown in him by head coach Dylan Kerr, scoring the opener in his first start since returning to the club while new signing Guikan showed what is expected of him with a thunderbolt barely 30 seconds after coming on.In the least, any kind of draw for K’Ogalo in the return leg in Equatorial Guinea will sail them through to the first round of the continental competition.Gor Mahia midfielder Humprey Miano against Leonne Vegetarianos’ Oje Rafael.

Gor were not as fast as they have been known to be in transition.Their first chance of the game came through in the fifth minute when Meddie Kagere’s shot on the half turn from a Geoffrey Walusimbi low cross from the left went straight to the keeper.Four minutes later, Omondi had his first effort at goal, lifting a shot from the edge of the box too high.The hosts came closest in the 15th minute when Vegetarianos skipper Asterio Ondeyi cleared the ball off the line with Shakava advancing in for a header after Wellington Ochieng had flicked on Francis Kahata’s freekick at the near post.Gor Mahia’s Kevin Omondi in action against Leones Vegetarianos’ Jesus Tomasosngong during the first leg of the 2018 CAF Champions League played at the Machakos Stadium on 10th February 2018.

He attempted to go back for the rebound but the shot stopper was quicker off his feet to pick the spills.But Gor were away 2-0 on the hour mark and in superb fashion.Gor Mahia fans rallying behind their team. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYAThe board was lifted up by the fourth official, Odhiambo coming out after an unusual afternoon off and in came Guikan. The Ivorian’s first order of business was to pick up a throw-in from Wellington Ochieng and with two touches to free himself off his markers fired a left foot bullet into the net.It was Gor’s game to lose now as they became more comfortable and goalscorer Omondi was later withdrawn for Samuel Onyango.Guikan almost doubled his tally with another ferocious shot after picking up a long ball at the edge of the box but the Vegeteranios keeper tipped it over for a corner.Gor continued to dominate but could not add on to their tally with Kagere coming close off a glancing header from Francis Kahata’s cross.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Leones Vegetarianos’ Mitogo Pedro against Gor Mahia’s Kevin Omondi during the first leg of the 2018 CAF Champions League played at the Machakos Stadium on 10th February 2018.
