NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 1 – Former AFC Leopards midfielder Austin Odhiambo scored the winning kick against his ex-employers as Gor Mahia beat arch rivals Ingwe to clinch the ceremonial Madaraka Day Cup 6-5 on post match penalties at the Nyayo National Stadium.

Skipper Peter Thiong’o skied his effort and Odhiambo responded, sending the ball straight through the middle for the winner.
For winning the Cup, Gor took home Sh1mn while AFC Leopards went home with Sh500,000.
In the first five, Tedian Esilaba, Washington Munene, Victor Omune, Josephat Lopaga and John Mark Makwatta scored for AFC.
Philemon Otieno, Sammy Onyango, Benson Omalla, Denis Ng’ang’a and John Macharia scored for Gor.
