Erisa Ssekisambu scored a hat-trick as Gor Mahia whipped Mt. Kenya United 4-1 in the Kenya Premier League at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Wednesday.

The Ugandan forward scored inside two minutes to set the K’Ogalo on route to their fourth win of the season.

Live wire striker Denis Oliech doubled the lead from the penalty spot fifteen minutes into the second half.

Bottom of the table Mt. Kenya pulled a goal back through Moses Odhiambo who was facing his old masters before they were reduced to 10 men.

Ssekisambu then got his second thirteen minutes from time before wrapping up the comprehensive win in the second minute of added time.

Odhiambo could have scored a brace but missed a penalty right at the death as his side suffered their sixth defeat of the season, and remain the only side in the league yet to see victory.

Meanwhile, victory elevated Gor Mahia to fourth place with 13 points from 7 matches, displacing Tusker with a superior goal difference.
