Abafana Bes’thende climbed to 6th position on the log after a late winning goal from Kudakwashe Mahachi secured a win over Highlands Park FC at Princess Magogo Stadium this afternoon.
Knox Mutizwa opened the scoring in the 28th minute from a move that saw him attack the goal from the right hand side and beat Kapini to secure the opening goal of the game. After a slow start it was Golden Arrows who dominated the play in the first 45 minutes. Sibeko had a great intercept in the midfield, played the ball to Mahachi who fed Mutizwa out wide, resulting in the goal.
There was an opportunity minutes later to extend the lead after Mutizwa was put through moments later in a counter move, but his shot struck the crossbar.
After going into the break 1-0 it was Highlands Park who came out with determination in the second half.
We then conceded a penalty after Mthiyane had a hand ball offence in the box. Moriri made no mistake for the visitors and converted the goal.
It became an end-to-end battle, with both sides wanting to find the winning goal, but Mahachi dealed the win as he collected a Danny Phiri pass and fired his shot in to secure the win.
We will travel to Pretoria next weekend where we are set to meet Masandwana in the Last16 of the Nedbank Cup on Saturday 8th April at 15h00
