Platinum Stars beat Santos 4-1
Posted: 15 October 2011 Time: 17:32
Henrico Botes got a brace to hand Platinum Stars a convincing 4-1 win over struggling Santos.
Botes had netted on the half-hour mark to hand the hosts a half-time lead, and after the break Dikwena really ran rampant.
Reuben Thebakang ensured the perfect start after the break when he made it 2-0 from Botes' pass.
Santos pulled one back soon after through Erwin Isaacs, but that is about as good as it got for The People's Team.
Ricardo Skippers put the ball past his own keeper in attempting to clear a cross on 58 minutes, and on 65 minutes the game was over when Botes got his second after some good work from Thuso Phala.
The pressure will now be mounting on Santos coach Boebie Solomons, as they slip to 12th place on the log with seven points from eight matches.
