New signing Parmenas Ochola scored a last gaps goal as record Kenyan champions Gor Mahia defeated Wazito 2-1 in a Football Kenya Federation Premier League played at Narok Stadium on Saturday.

George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo gave K’Ogalo the lead before James Kinyanjui restored parity for the league strugglers who tied the scores at 1-1 at the break.

Ochola, formerly with Mara Sugar, would end the game as a hero for Gor after scoring a 96th minute winner.

The win saw Gor complete a double over Wazito after previously defeating them 1-0 thanks to Blackberry’s goal at Thika Stadium two-weeks ago.

Victory takes K’Ogalo joint third in the log with Nairobi City Stars on 41 points. City Stars had previously earlier on the day defeated Bandari 2-1 in an early kick off match played at Ruaraka Grounds.

Meanwhile, defending champions Tusker dropped two vital points after being forced to a 1-1 draw with last season’s runners up KCB.

In fact, it was Tusker who had to score a late equalizer to collect a point from the match played at Ruaraka Grounds.

Derrick Otanga had given the bankers a narrow 1-0 halftime lead before Stewart Omondi's brilliant goal in the dying minutes saw Tusker claim a point.

The draw leaves Tusker second in the log with 42 points, 10 points behind leader Kakamega Homeboyz.
