Gor Mahia defends title, books Everton date

Rwandese internationals Meddie Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge scored Gor Mahia to beat Simba SC to defend the Sportpesa Super Cup title to book for another slot to play against English Premier League side Everton.

The Afraha stadium showdown today was a culmination of a one week long tournament as Kenya Premier League champions edged out Simba 2-0 in a final, with Gor Mahia, the only team in the tournament that did not concede any goal and were the highest scorers with seven goals.
The champions earned themselves a ticket to travel to Goodison Park in England to face in a friendly match next month.
Kagere scored the opener with just six minutes into the match shooting from inside the box after controlling a Francis Kahata cross slipped through keeper Aishi Manula’s fingers into the net.
Gor kept the pressure and were rewarded when unmarked Tuyisenge slid in to connect a cross from Humphrey Mieno which found the Simba backline napping, Manula in goal left in no man’s land.
Coach Dylan Kerr then made a tactical change, midfielder Humphrey Mieno coming off for Innocent Wafula. The change meant Philemon Otieno went into midfield while Wafula slotted straight at right back.
