first_img0Shares0000Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuyisenge lifts his fingers to the sky after scoring.NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 17 – Rwandese talisman Jacques Tuyisenge grabbed a hat-trick as leaders Gor Mahia whip Kariobangi Sharks 3-1 to bounce back in a mid-week Kenyan Premier League match played at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on Tuesday.K’Ogalo made a bold statement after last weekend’s 1-0 loss to struggling Mathare United with Tuyisenge scoring all the three goals in the first half to condemn Sharks in a difficult position to find footing. The win leaves Gor needing just a point to be crowned the 2017 KPL champions and that will be determined when they travel away to Ulinzi Stars on Sunday at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru.Tuyisenge opened the account in the 11th minute after maximizing poor defence from Jeff Oyemba.He then doubled the lead in the 20th minute after connecting a Meddie Kagere cross before defender Wellington Ochieng picking him up to seal the win in the 36th minute and take his goal tally to 11, just one behind leader Kepha Aswani of Nakumatt FC in the race of the Golden Boot.However, Sharks found the consolation from the spot when Innocent Wafula handled the ball inside the box in the 68th minute for Masoud Juma to convert.Sharks will be looking to pick up from the loss when they take on giants AFC Leopards in the final of the GOtv Shield on Friday at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

These cars come in every size and shape, and they prove that we can give consumers the choices they want and still protect the environment,” he said.Chevy’s Hybrid Tahoe uses a two-mode hybrid system that merges the automatic transmission with the hybrid technologies. Larger vehicles get lower gas milage because they weigh more, so something was needed to boost it.“An equalizer has been needed, and the two-mode system in the Tahoe is clearly that equalizer,” Cogan said.The Tahoe beat out hybrid versions of the Chevrolet Malibu, Mazda Tribute, Nissan Altima and Saturn Aura.greg.wilcox@dailynews.com818-713-3743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
