Kasarani’s Red Eagles aka Terror Squad made real their threats to conquer Nairobi by smashing Gor Mahia Youth 7-8 goals in post-match penalties during the Nairobi Champions Cup finals held yesterday at Camp Toyoyo, Jericho.
Gor Mahia had a difficult time especially during the first 45 minutes since they could not go past their half. Terror Squad, the Mwiki based club was well prepared to face their rivals who panicked even before the game started.
The game ended goalless after the regular time and it had to be decided through penalties. Both sides scored scintillating penalties but the seventh Gor Mahia penalty was blocked by Terror’s adept goalie. Immediately after the shot was blocked, Gor Mahia ceased to proceed in taking their final kick that was to determine their fate.
Following Gor Mahia’s refusal to take their penalty, the referee had to stop the match and award Terror Squad the victory. Gor started protesting and engaging Terror’s players although no one was injured on the process.
