Kenya’s Gor to meet Azam in regional cup final

Kenyan champions Gor Mahia drove into the finals of the Cecafa Club Championship with a confident, energetic and stylish performance against Al Khartoum that ended with a 3-1 win.
Michael Olunga, Innocent Waful and Meddie Kagere provided the goals, rendering captain Amin Ibrahim’s second minute strike null and void. 
It was a victory that caused Scottish tactician Frank Nuttall to leap into the arms of assistant coach Frank Ouna after the final whistle, as Al Khartoum’s Anthony Akumu pulled away from his crestfallen team mates and joined his former teammates in a thanksgiving prayer inside the pitch.
With this win, Gor have confirmed their place in the tournament final for the first time since 1985, something that was a very distant dream just two weeks ago.
They will come up against Tanzania’s Azam in the final after the latter knocked out Uganda’s KCCA 1-0 in another semifinal clash.
Took aantage
The final is slated for Sunday and promises to be anther delicious encounter.
“The targets changed the moment we won the quarterfinals. After that match, we reassessed our goals and now we are looking forward to produce a top performance on Sunday and hopefully win the league.
“We shot ourselves in the foot early in the match but I am very happy that the players reorganised themselves well and were able to score three goals afterwards,” Nuttall said after the match.
Khartoum had a false start after Ibrahim took aantage of the unsettled Gor squad to send the ball past goalkeeper Bonface Oluoch.
The Kenyan champions took 25 minutes to recover and in the 27th minute, they landed a penalty after goal scorer Amin raised his hands inside the box in an attempt to block an incoming cross from Walusimbi.
