This match was played after four difficult matches where we played PLK City, SS UTD all twice in a row in Telkom Cup and ABSA Premier League. We’ll be playing MSFC twice as well.
The approach to the match was similar where we defended very well and was courageous enough to impose our offensive play. We had a fairly balanced first half where both teams had to deal with rainy weather conditions. The opponent had an advantage of playing with the rain and wind and we were against. The opponent broke wide from their left and a soft cross was made and we conceded a very soft goal. The score was 0:1 and the first half came to an end. We had a good first half except the mistake that led to the goal.
We started the second half with the wind and the rain. We then opted to press the opponent high up. We dominated the second half. Had a great team performance and scored three goal in the process. The equalizer came in the 60th minute when Phiri took a shot and the goalkeeper fluffed the shot due to wet wether and lack of grip from gloves. Ten minutes later we made it 2:0 when Lunga played a diagonal ball and Mutizwa finished the chance, far post. In the 80th minute we made it 3:1 after a great short interplay leading to the opponent box where Parusnath was fouled inside the box. Mutizwa stepped up and hit the third one to make it 3:1. All looked well and the match was nearing its end, the opponent scored their second from bad defending and lapse in concentration. The score was 3:2 and the match ended with tension and Excitement.
We meeting the same opponent again in our next match on the 23/11/2019 in the Telkom Cup.
