Downs, Chiefs in thrilling draw

Posted: 17 October 2009 Time: 17:28

Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs have played to an entertaining 2-2 draw in the Absa Premiership at the Super Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

However it was Chiefs goalkeeper Arthur Bartman who was the real hero of the match, making several blinding saves to help his side earn a point in a game in which they really should have come away with nothing.

The Amakhosi started brightly, but it was Sundowns who gradually took control of the game before breaking the deadlock on the half hour mark thanks to Mphela. The Bafana Bafana striker earned a penalty after being brought down by Rooi and duly converted the spot kick to make it 1-0.

The opening phase of the second half saw ‘Downs looking to kill off the Soweto side with a second goal and it was only the brilliance of Bartman that held them at bay.

However, Chiefs turned the game in their favour in stunning style, scoring two goals in quick succession to go into a 2-1 lead.

First, in the 57th minute, Musona showed great speed and strength to get in behind the Sundowns defence and his cool finish past Brian Baloyi brought the visitors level very much against the run of play.

Tshabalala, who had only been on the field about five minutes after coming on as a substitute, put Chiefs into a lead when he scored a stunner in the 63rd minute, curling a 30-metre free kick into the top corner of the net. Baloyi could only stand and admire the midfielder’s fabulous strike.

However, with just under 20 minutes to play, Sundowns restored parity when Mphela cleverly worked some space in the penalty area before unleashing a low shot that beat Bartman’s right hand and nestled in the bottom corner.

The home team looked the likelier scorers as full time neared, though it was Chiefs who got the ball into the back of the net via substitute Jose Torrealba, only to see the effort disallowed.

Ja Right!

The score is 2-2, which means its a draw!! No one died, Sundowns played good, so what?

What the fuck with making noise?

Chiefs was bad today, that I accept, but if Sundowns was the bomb, then why did they miss so many clear scoring chances.

all I can say is that: To all Sundowns Fans, just FOKOF! hulle moer!

Win or draw...The fucken match was nice! Both teams did their level best, as for my team Chiefs, you did not do us proud, but I don't complain because this was our third match awy from home and we had bank 7 points! To me that is commendable!

The focus now must be kuMaswayi Swayi, Moroka swallows.

Khosi for ever!

It was another wasteful day by Mphela. I think both Mabhuti and Mphela are playing for their own reputation, the sooner they eliminate this mentality the better.
