Best picks, memorable moments against Sofapaka


Tie against Sofapaka always presents some good and memorable moments and here are our picks ahead of tomorrow’s league fixture at Thika stadium.

March 2013 – the year Gor Mahia finally won the league, they opened the season against a strong Sofapaka side tipped for the title with a 1-0 win courtesy of a goal by new signing Paul Kiongera.

October 2013 – Dan Sserunkuma’s winner effectively knocked Sofapaka out of the title race prompting wild celebrations as we finally got to lay a hand on the league title for the first time in 18 years, a fact confirmed with a win against Kakamega Homeboys in the next game (2013).

 October 2014 – Abdoul Fiston Razak’s brace against us in Machakos led to ugly scenes in and around the stadium as the 2-3 loss took the title race with Sofapaka to the wire at the close of the season. A 3-0 thumping of Ushuru a couple of weeks later would however see us successfully defend the title

August 2018 – Engagements in the CAF CC group stages, and CECAFA tournament led to a fixture pile-up and rivals were praying for fatigue to get the better of us.

Coach Dylan Kerr used a second-string team captained by Innocent Wafula that would be famously known as Wakulima and they showed no mercy to opponents, including thrashing Sofapaka 3-0 in Narok with goals by Joachim Oluoch, Innocent Wafula and Sammy Onyango.
