Lamontville Golden Arrows have won 2-0 against Garankuwa FC in Pretoria this afternoon.
The game started off with both teams getting a feel of eachother and this saw both teams taking the ball to the score zone but the attempts being easily saved by the respective goal keepers.
Lamontville Golden Arrows then found their groove and for the next 10 minutes, attacked the Garankuwa goal, with two solid attempts being denied. Mkhize crossed the ball into the box and the ball just went past the goal keeper off the goal line. The second saw Nxumalo and Khenyeza play one, two into the box, but Nxumalo’s last touch just had too much on it, and he played it straight into the goal keepers hands.
The game then became a fight for ball possession and retention and the stalemate was ended when the referee called for a water break.
This seemed to fire the team up into another gear and not long after Fikizolo scored off a cross from Mkhize.
The only goal for the half, meaning that Lamontville Golden Arrows enjoyed a pshycological advantage over their opponents going into the break.
The second half was a frustrating affair for Golden Arrows. Garankuwa seemed to up their game, playing long ball down field and trying to score. Their defence were closing down plays and making it difficult for Abafana Bes’thende to cross any advantage lines, keeping the pressure on.
Persistance paid off however when Cele won the ball against play, passed to Hotto who played it to Khenyeza. Khenyeza dribbled the defender and popped it past the keeper to take the goal tally to 2.
This seemed to bolster the teams confidence and they played the last 10 minutes more aggressively on the attack.
We play Natal FC next weekend in the Nedbank Cup, and once again, urge all our supporters to get to Chatsworth Stadium and get behind the team
