Lamontville Golden Arrows have won their game against Polokwane City this afternoon. After the 3 week break,both sides started off looking rather shaky, however they eventually settled to give the crowd an entertaining game.
The first half was even footed with both teams defending well and taking the opportunities to get up to the box when they had possession. Abafana Bes’thende got their breakthrough in the 25th minute, when a cross from Mahachi found Musonda in the box. He flicked the ball over Polokwane’s keeper to score the only goal of the match.
Polokwane City battled with their offsides and this was disadvantageous to their game. They had opportunities, but wasted them due to being blown offsides.
The second half was better for Polokwane, who looked dangerous on a number of occasions, but could just not finish off and Zikalala held his own in the goals, making a number of great saves to deny them. Lamontville Golden Arrows also created opportunities in the last 45. With Hotto and Musonda coming off it which gave the opportunity for Khenyeza and Chapman to make an impact. Khenyeza managed to get into the box on a number of occasions, but was just not able to get the goal in the back of the net.
Polokwane fought hard until the last whistle, and even in extra time were fighting for the equaliser. They could just not get it. Abafana Bes’thende have increased their points tally, and will enjoy a short festive break.
The next game will be against Free State Stars on the 09 January next year.
