Downs shot down by Arrows

Posted: 7 November 2009 Time: 17:22

Mamelodi Sundowns lost ground in the League title race after a 1-0 defeat to Golden Arrows at Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Musa Bilankulu netted the only goal of the game midway through the first half.

Arrows did most of the early attacking, with Richard Henyekane testing Brian Baloyi with a few well-struck long-range efforts.

But it was Sundowns who came closest to the opening goal – Katlego Mphela’s shot across the face of goal shaving the upright.

Vusumuzi Vilakazi then hit a shot from a tight angle which Baloyi tipped over, and from the resultant corner Bilankulu rose highest to head home Henyekane’s corner.

Sundowns had a chance to draw level before the break, but Mphela, one-on-one with goalkeeper Khuzwayo, fluffed his lines, with Mabhuti Khenyeza unmarked in the centre.

Mphela was again involved in Downs’ best chance on the hour-mark – his cross played in towards Khenyeza, who was undone by the bounce of the ball two yards from goal.

The rest of the game saw precious little goal-mouth action, with Njabulo Manqana curling a shot over from the edge of the area, while Esrom Nyandoro’s cracker was well held by Khuzwayo.

Khuzwayo then made a great save with his legs to deny Mphela in the dying minutes, handing Arrows a famous win.

As I had regrettably anticipated, my favourite team "Hot and Cold FC" wend down in Durban. What a Shitty team this is. Its too bad I love it.

I wonder when will Baloyi be benched. This MF is costing us big time. Mr. Editor, the last time I checked you said Moriri had recovered but to my surprise you still list him under the injury list of Downs players. What must we believe now? Talk about poor journalism or reporting!!!

I was indat game and I hv 2 say da score is not da true reflection of da game. Arrow used da chance they've got and if U dnt use your chances U dont win. Welldone to Arrows and also thanx to Downs for da soccer display and commitment they've shown. And I have to say Downs have a knowledgeable coach it wil be a big mistake if they can fire dis one.

When your team is not used to winning you end up celebrating other team's victories.
