Gor Mahia finished off their 2015 Kenyan Premier League season with a 2 – 0 win over Muhoroni Youth. By the result, the champions matched the same team’s feat in 1976 when they registered a record 32 matches unbeaten.
Gor Mahia were in the aftermath coroneted, their third straight KPL crown after an initial 18 year drought.
While the champions were all celebratory, down the table KCB FC failed to take advantage of City Stars’ draw with Sony Sugar. The Bankers need a win over Western Stima but after only managing a 1 – 1 draw, they saw their last in the KPL and will be playing in the second tier from 2016.
The Bankers thus finished 15th in the season and join Nakuru AllStars as the relegated teams.
Out in Oserian, Ushuru FC needed a win to guarantee a Top 8 finish but with a barren draw in the game against Nakuru AllStars, Ken Kenyatta’s side still managed a top half finish as all the four other contenders for the single Top 8 spot failed to win.
Mathare United squandered their chances of a top half finish earlier in the season with too many draws from winning positions and went to the final day hoping for a win against Chemelil Sugar to guarantee the top half finish but after a 1 – 1 draw, the 2008 champions once again miss out on the Top 8.
At the Nairobi City Stadium, City Stars flirted with relegation for long times in the game, going down by a goal to Sony Sugar who had eyes fixed on a Top 8 slot but the Kawangware side managed a goal through Gambian Ebrima Sanneh which was just enough to guarantee survival.
At the Ruaraka Stadium, Sofapaka managed a 2 – 1 win over Thika United to secure a third place finish after Bandari played to a barren draw with Ulinzi Stars out in Nakuru.
At the Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani, AFC Leopards went down 1 – 3 to Tusker FC with Jese Were adding two to his earlier 20 goals to finish the season as top scorer.
