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
