Goals Galore at Sasol Champs in Klerksdorp

by | Nov 27, 2013

It was a festival of goals on Day two of the Sasol League National Championships at the Alabama Stadium in Klerksdorp, North West on Tuesday, 26 November 2013.

Top teams Mamelodi Sundowns, Ma-Indies and Durban Ladies managed to book quarter-final spots.

The Chloorkop-based Mamelodi Sundowns started off as firm favourites against Bloemfontein Celtic and it was no surprise when they clinched a 3-nil victory to go top of Group B courtesy of a first-half brace by Agnes Nkosi and a goal from Bongiwe Thusi.

In hot weather conditions at the Alabama Stadium, Celtic tried to turn the result around in the second half but they found ‘Banyana ba Style’ holding firm.

In the second fixture of the day, Ma-Indies were the second to book themselves a place in the last eight as they taught Royal Wizards a football lesson with 12-nil drubbing to move to the top Group A.

It was one-way traffic for Ma-Indies from the first whistle, signaling their return to the tournament after missing out on the 2012 edition held in Durban. This was the second win for the Limpopo-based side following their 1-0 victory over Al’s Puk Tawana on Monday (25 November).

A goal each from Lebohang Ramalepa, Fulufhelo Munzhedzi, Thanyani Phumudzo and Noko Matlou led proceedings for Ma-Indies to go to the break with a 4-nil lead.

Wizards came back rejuvenated from the interval, and showed some fighting spirit but they rarely unsettled Ma-Indies who scored a further eight goals in the second half to clinh the match with a 12-nil win.

Durban Ladies held their own against Empumalanga Ladies to walk out 4-nil victors – rounding off day two at the National Championships.

Silindile Ngubane got on the score sheet 28 miutes into the half for Durban Ladies to give the coastal side a 1-0 lead. Nozipho Nyathikazi and Nondyebo Mgudu scored goals four minutes apart to make it 3-nil.

Empumalanga Ladies tried to contain their opponents after the break but fell short in defence, giving former Banyana Banyana captain, Amanda Dlamini a chance to score the only goal in the second half to seal a 4-nil victory for Durban Ladies.

The battle is on for the remaining quarter-final spots which will be contested by championship hosts Als’s Puk Tawana, Royal Wizards, Cape Town Roses, Bloemfontein Celtics, City Lads and Empumalanga Ladies in the final group stage matches on Wednesday, 27 November at the Alabama Stadium.
