Mamelodi Sundowns beat Golden Arrows

Posted: 11 December 2010 Time: 17:26

Mamelodi Sundowns came from a goal down to beat Golden Arrows 3-1 at Chatsworth on Saturday afternoon.

After a sluggish start, Arrows brought the game to life with a bang in the ninth minute. A wonderful passing move that started deep in their own half ended with Moon cracking a shot past Wayne Sandilands from the edge of the box.

But Arrows’ defence looked ill at ease and it seemed a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ Sundowns would find the back of the net.

And just before the midway point of the first half the Brazilians made it 1-1, with Mokoena getting ahead of Mzuvukile Tom to volley home Innocent Mdledle’s floated ball in between the backline and goalkeeper Helton da Rocha.

Sundowns looked comfortably the better team in the conditions and began to boss the match.

Five minutes before the break they were rewarded for their superiority when Mokoena scored his second, tapping in at the far post after Franklin Cale’s corner travelled through the six-yard box almost untouched.

Arrows coach Zoran Filipovic looked to shuffle his pack in the early stages of the first half, yet Arrows never really looked like threatening and any hopes they had of making a comeback were effectively ended with 13 minutes to play when defender Josephs Musonda was shown a straight red card for a studs-up challenge on Thapelo Tshilo.

Arrows did have a great chance late on to bring themselves level, but Sandilands made a superb save to deny Tom in a one-on-one situation. The Brazilians then punished the hosts for their miss when Khenyeza netted the third goal in the 88th minute, wrapping up the points for the Tshwane team.

Well, credit should go where it's due....besides Mpho Makola's silky skills vandag, I was extremely impressed with that guy who is worth a (Telkom knockout plus bonus) lol! Franklin Cale! He played out of his skin today, and in patches looked worthy of the telk....nx, 5mil spent on him. mh.

Hope Tshilo's knock ai'nt that bad he was solid too, Mdledle as well for the first tine brought us back into a match after a slow start, we can only thank Pirates for the 1st goal..'Push' i-passion Bhakaoiya hhe!' lol

Once again abokaizerbel's loss today is krols fault for making them believe tht they are gud whn their coach admited publicly tht they are an average team with lack of quality,,,,

Be warned natulena rotten farm products tht krol is kruel n he can decieve u badly,u see wht he is done to u,,,,hehehehehehe

Celtics pls do us a favour tomorow by beatin krol 1-0 so tht he can leave,,
