Austin Odhiambo scored the only goal as champions Gor Mahia defeated perennial rivals AFC Leopards 1-0 in a Kenyan Premier League match at the Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Leopards were unable to capitalize on the numerical advantage from the 35th minute onwards as Gor Mahia goalkeeper Kevin Omondi was shown a red card for a foul on last man Victor Omune.

It was a well-attended match, with Nyayo Stadium almost full, but the adrenaline of the derby also saw partisan team stewards trading blows, especially at half-time.

The fans also had their share of problems, but were easily controlled by the police officers.

The win completes a season double for Gor over Leopards, with a 2-0 first leg draw at the Moi International Center Kasarani.
