Second half substitute Eliud Lokuwam goal in the 77th minute was all that Gor Mahia needed to beat Chemelil Sugar FC in a SportPesa Premier League match played at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru on Thursday 16th August.
Both teams struggled in the first half but Gor Mahia upped the tempo after the breather and it was just a matter of time before they got the winning goal after setting camp on the Chemelil half.
Youngster Eliud Lokuwam capitalised on a defensive lapse to tap in the winner in 77th minute much to the joy of his K’Ogalo teammates and fans.
