Muchiri had dragged Tusker back twice after going down to goals from Nicholas Kipkurui and Muguna’s penalty before Charles Momanyi’s thumping header took Gor back infront and Muguna completing his brace with a belter of a hit.
Boniface Omondi then put the game to an end with another emphatic goal, chesting down Muguna’s cross to thump beyond Robert Mboya at the stroke of full time.
In other matches played on Saturday, Harambee Stars assistant coach Zedekiah Otieno began his tenure as the new KCB coach in emphatic fashion hitting his former side Sony Sugar 3-0 with goals from Dennis Odhiambo, Stephen Waruru and their former skipper Enock Agwanda.
