Benson Omala and Kalvin Ochieng scored late as Gor Mahia run out 2-0 winners against Nyanza Combined to claim the Eliud Owalo Super Cup.
The match, played Nyilima Grounds in Asembo, Siaya County, was sponsored by the Eliud Owalo Foundation which recently came to the aid of Gor Mahia by purchasing a new bus for the club.
Gor Mahia used the friendly match as part of their warm up ahead of the resumption of the second leg of the FKF Premier League and did not exert themselves a lot as the first half ended goalless.

“We were also honoured by the presence of Gor Mahia legends Peter Dawo, Bob Ogolla, George Onyango 'Fundi', Tobias Ocholla 'Jua Kali', Sammy Owino 'Kempes', Isaiah Omondi 'Janabi', and David Ochieng 'Kamoga',” said ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo after the match.
