Platinum Stars put four past Santos

Posted: 6 November 2008 Time: 18:11

Platinum Stars gave Santos a 4-1 thumping in their Absa Premiership match at Olympia Park on Thursday afternoon.

The goals were scored by Erwin Isaacs for Santos, and Henrico Botes, Godfrey Sapula, Tshepo Ramokala and Simba Marumo for Stars.

The game was started 25 minutes in, picking up where it had been abandoned yesterday due to bad light.

Although Santos opened the scoring, when Isaacs slotted home an Eleazar Rodgers pass, Stars scored four in the final fifteen minutes of the game to earn their third win of the League season.

First, Almiro Lobo sent through a pass to Botes, who scored a low goal from just six yards on 69 minutes to make it 1-1.

Next, Sapula sent Stars ahead in the 76th minute, after Steve Lekoelea crossed the ball in from the left wing.

Ramokala made it 3-1 just two minutes later, when he poked in a cross from Botes.

Finally, veteran Marumo converted a penalty confidently in the 89th minute of the game, after Magogi Gabonamong fouled Botes in the area, to make it 4-1.

Conceding four goals in the last fifteen minutes, wow, they also conceded Five goals against Siwelele and yes Chiefs also scored four against them in the MTN 8 cup, ja ne most teams in the PSL wants to play against Santos as they have a generous defense whose duty is to voluntarily give away goals, sure their coach is having sleepless nights and must be thinking hard about the axe falling on his head sooner. This Bright coach from Botswana was hailed as a hero when he took over from the inexperienced Jean-Marc Ithier, and for a while seemed to have found a winning combination for Santos. However it doesn't surprise me that Santos is struggling as they are slow starters every season, but, this time around they are horrible and I see a gloom future for them in the PSL, and they can't claim to have lost core players in the off season beacuse only Kanono left for Pirates. This must be a leson to a certain coach who thinks his team is the best in the PSl by virtue of having beaten the big three I hope he rhikomeli rhingapeli
