Ezenkosi, Amakhosi draw
Posted: 17 February 2008 Time: 17:51
Chiefs drew 0-0 with Cosmos in a frustrating Absa Premiership match at Orkney Stadium on Sunday.
Both sides created numerous chances, and played good football, but just could not find the back of the net.
Cosmos could have been 3-0 up in the first twenty minutes, after two shots from Dikgang Mabalane and one from Bamuza Sono.
Geoffrey Massa had a great game, creating chance after chance. However, he either couldn’t finish himself, or distributed the ball to teammates who couldn’t deliver.
Massa had a great chance in the 37th minute, after a shot was deflected and he was delivered the ball right in front of the net, but he skied his attempt over the posts.
The best chance for Cosmos came in the 86th minute, however, when Massa made a solid run on the left, beat his man, and then looked to have gone too far before blasting the ball straight at Khune from a tight angle. The ball hit the inside of the keeper’s leg and went out off the post. Cosmos couldn’t make anything of the resulting consecutive corners.
Chiefs had their fair share of opportunities, but Cosmos keeper Avril Phali was on form.
The result takes Chiefs out of the bottom four on goal difference. Cosmos stay bottom on 14 points.
