play Meddie Kagere's goal v Nakuru AllStars in SportPesa Super Cup (P Live)

Gor Mahia beat Nakuru AllStars 2-0 in SportPesa Super Cup’s semifinal match played on Thursday at Uhuru Stadium in Tanzania to book AFC Leopards in the tournament’s final match.

K’Ogalo scored one goal in either half to seal a score-line which has taken them closer to the winning prize and a slot of playing against English Premier League side Everton.

Nakuru AllStars, who knocked out Tanzanian giants Simba in the quarters went to the match with a mind-set of winning but their dream were dented at the stroke of half-time when Rwandan striker Meddie Kagere headed past keeper Martin Lule.

In the second half, stand-in coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno introduced Amos Nondi in the 57th minute and rested goal-scorer Meddie Kagere in the 62th minute in a bid to adjust the lineup as they look for another goal.

The changes created an impact which was manifested in the 82th minute with a goal from George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo; a goal which wrapped up the game.

In an earlier semifinal match, arch-rivals AFC Leopards had also sailed past Yanga to book the final spot. It will be fascinating to see how the two teams lock horns in a derby outside Kenya.
