Fan trouble mars AFC and GOR clash

21 October 2011, 11:18 Fred Maingi

Nairobi - Crowd trouble saw the Football Kenya Limited (FKL) Cup semi-final match pitting arch-rivals Gor Mahia against AFC Leopards end prematurely with K’Ogalo leading 1-0.

Fifa referee Davies Omwelo was forced to call off the match ten minutes from time after fans in the terraces kept pelting assistant referee Gilbert Cheruiyot with missiles.

The officials twice tried to restart the match but the chaos had escalated with fans engaging in running battles in the stands.

The fighting was ignited by Gor fans who were attacked as they celebrated Moses Odhiambo’s goal.

Gor defender Eric Masika was hit with a stone on the head while the skirmishes continued forcing police to fire teargas to disperse fans with several suffering from injuries.

The match was as dramatic on the pitch as it was off it with Leopards striker Mike Barasa being rushed to hospital following a collision with Gor Mahia goalkeeper Ronnie Kagunzi who also could not continue with the match. Moses Odhiambo scored the only goal which separated the two sides in the 55th minute beautifully heading home a Moses Otieno free kick. Football Kenya is expected to make a decision on the matter on Friday.

Earlier, Francis Chinjili had hit the Gor post in the first half and it was the closest that Leopard’s came to score in a first half that was punctuated by missed chances from both sides.

Chinjili got space in the middle of the Gor defence and took a long shot which beat Ronnie Kagunzi but was blocked by the post. A follow-up attempt by Oscar Kadenge did not yield results either.

Unlike when they were demolished 3-0 by Leopards early this month, Gor looked more settled and had an early effort by Odhiambo flashing wide inside the first minute of the match.

Barasa had a first attempt at goal in the fourth minute but was denied by Kagunzi. Four minutes later Dan Makori pounced on a miss by Kadenge but blasted wide.

As Gor piled pressure, Makori was again put through by his striking partner Odhiambo but he blasted wide.
