GOLDEN ARROWS 2
4 UNI OF PRETORIA
Date: Saturday ,01 March2014
Venue: King Zwelithini Stadium
University of Pretoria have stunned Lamontville Golden Arrows with a 4-2 victory in their Absa Premiership clash at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Goals from Bongi Ntuli and Thanduyise Khuboni looked as though they might get something from the game for Abafana Bes’thende, but AmaTuks netted late on through Atusaye Nyondo and Thabo Mnyamane, his second of the game, added to an earlier effort from Thabo Mosadi to seal the win for the Tshwane side.
Arrows made a bright start and were almost ahead inside two minutes when visiting goalkeeper Washington Arubi just managed to claw a Manti Moholo half-volley side.
Nkanyiso Cele then fired over the top, before Rudolph Bester again tests Arubi. Ntuli fired a warning of his skill when he shot just wide midway through the first half and then four minutes later did have his side in front.
This time it was a neat finish from close range after being teed-up by Deon Hotto. AmaTuks lifted their game after the goal though and were level on 38 minutes as the impressive Mnyamane did brilliantly well to beat Arthur Bartman in the Arrows goal.
The home side replaced Bester with Zambian striker Festus Mbewe at halftime and he had a great chance to put his side head when he met Hotto’s cross, but his effort lacked the power to beat Arubi.
Arrows fell behind when Mosadi popped up to score the visitors’ second, another good finish.
But the home side were soon level with Khuboni proving his prowess from the penalty-spot again as he converted following a foul on Moholo by Buhle Mkhwanazi.
But AmaTuks fought on and two minutes later they had the lead, this time Nyondo latching onto a long ball from Arubi to score.
It was 4-2 late on when Mnyamane got his second, beating the offside trap to score.
Next up for Abafana Bes’thende is another home game, this time with Mpumalanga Black Aces on March 12. The scheduled away trip to Kaizer Chiefs next Saturday has been postponed due to the AmaKhosi’s CAF Champions League commitments.
