Gor wreck Leopards to lift inaugural Super Cup title and book Everton date

Gor Mahia FC became the first ever side to win the Super Cup title on Sunday when they hammered archrivals AFC Leopards 3-0 at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.

The record Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions are the only side of the eight that were involved in the tournament not to have gone through penalty shootouts and they made their dominance count with an emphatic victory at Tanzania’s largest city.

The win means K’Ogalo add yet another glittering trophy to their cabinet and walk away with approximately KSh3m in prize money.

To cap it all, they get the chance to play nine-time English Premier League winners Everton FC on June 13 at the National Stadium in the same city.

Goals from Timothy Otieno and substitutes Oliver Maloba and John Ndirangu condemned Ingwe to painful defeat in the Mashemeji Derby played over 900km away from home where these two sides have so often produced Kenya’s most cheered football.
