Kenyan giants Gor Mahia on Saturday crashed out Caf Champions League after going down 2-0 against Nigeria's Lobi Stars in Enugu, Nigeria.

Gor Mahia won the first leg of this first round tie 3-1 in Nairobi a week ago but could not defend their two-goal margin, eventually crashing out on away goals rule after the teams tied 3-3 on aggregate. Nigerians benefitted from the valuable goal they scored at Kasarani Stadium, as they locked out Gor Mahia from getting on the scored board.

Gor will now drop to the Caf Confederation Cup, just like was the case last year.
