Competition: Multichoice Diski Shield

Venue: Makhulong Stadium
We have secured a third place in the first Diski Shield competition after beating Bloemfontein Celtic 3-0 this afternoon.
The team went onto the field this morning showing early intention to score, putting pressure on the opponents defence from kick-off.
We troubled their defenders as well as dominated in the mid field, playing into gaps and creating scoring opportunities. Ndududzo Sibiya capitalised on a weakness on their left flank and managed to get the ball behind their defenders consistently.
This caused some frustration in the Bloemfontein side and the pressure eventually paid off when a shot from the left was deflected into the goals by a Celtic player, giving us the lead.
Bloem Celtic made an attempt to equalise before the break, but their efforts were not good enough.
Returning for the second half, we kept the pressure on our opponents. We did not allow them the space they were looking for to get back into the game, and kept them on the back foot.
Thando Khwela unleashed a cannon of a shot from outside the box in the 58th minute. He was allowed plenty of time to take the shot, truck it well with his right foot and found the back of the net.
Celtic had a few moments of play. Our defence kept tight at the back, and they could not find space to make any threatening shots at goal. Cebekhulu did well to control what was fired at him.
A third goal in the third minute of extra time from substitute Tshanini Falakhe secured the win and the third place for us in the competition.
We would like to thanks the sponsors Multichoice for this exciting new competition, and look forward to next seasons installment of Diski games.
