Lamontville Golden Arrows have produced a stunning come-back thanks to a hat-trick from Bryce Moon to defeat AmaZulu 3-2 in their Absa Premiership clash at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The result means Golden Arrows go into the final game of the season away to Orlando Pirates on May 21 without any pressure having staved off the threat of relegation and they are now targeting a ninth-place finish.
But things did not look so bright for Abafana Bes’thende when they went two goals down inside the first 25 minutes.
Lehlohonolo Majoro netted a brace, first converting from Sibusiso Hadebe’s pass, before scoring again, this time from the supply of Dlamini.
The score remained 2-0 at the break, but the second period was all Golden Arrows … and Moon.
His first came on 52 minutes when he knocked home the rebound after Thamsanqa Gabuza’s shot had been parried.
And 13 minutes later the scores were level as Moon scored again, getting a rare goal with his head.
The comeback was complete with 16 minutes remaining as Moon grabbed his hat-trick. A long ball from returning goalkeeper Helton da Rocha found its way to the Bafana Bafana star and he kept his cool to finish.
