Burundian international Karim Nizigiyimana put Gor ahead in the 36th minute after converting Kenneth Mugunas pass. The Green army dominated the game mounting pressure on Ulinzis defence leading to Hassan Mahammeds own goal in the 56th minute, a goal that saw Gor lead 2-0 against their arch rivals.
Stephen Waruru however, pulled a surprise by striking twice in the 76th and 90th minute to equalize for Ulinzi. This agitated Kogalo fans who did not hesitate to throw bottles and stones in the field prompting the police to launch teargas canisters to disperse them.
The match dubbed the battle of two armies was stopped for over 20 minutes as police engaged the fans in running battles.
Gor fans expressed their displeasure in the team’s performance calling upon head coach Zedekiah Zico Otieno to quit for what the alleged as poor record. Before meeting Ulinzi Gor Mahia had suffered a 2-0 defeat from Sofapaka and coach Zico is under pressure since the exit of his boss Zii Maria last month, the team has not won a single Premier League match.
On Wednesday Kogalo will play Muhoroni Youth in Moi Stadium Kisumu and coach Zico will be seeking to bring the team back to its winning ways. Muhoroni Youth on Saturday trounced Western Stima the same field to move up to position 15 in the league.
Goals from Collins Agade 36th and Fred Ochieng 80th minute granted Muhoroni 2-1 Win over Stima whose lone goal was netted by Dan Otieno 59th minute. Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin lauded his players for pulling a comeback despite the intimidation from thousands of Gor fans.
