Disastrous own goal seals Golden Arrows' fate

Posted: 2 November 2011 Time: 21:50

AmaZulu have claimed the spoils in the KwaZulu-Natal Derby with a 2-1 victory over Lamontville Golden Arrows at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday night.

An own goal from Robyn Johannes and a further strike from Tsweu Mokoro sealed the points for Usuthu, despite a late rally from the home side who netted through Mzuvukile Tom.

Musa Bilankulu had two first half chances for Golden Arrows, the first he just failed to connect a Philani Shange cross, the second he dallied too long on the ball before shooting.

Usuthu took the lead in calamitous fashion for the home side as Johannes’ back-pass was not dealt with by goalkeeper Virgil Vries and the ball landed up in the back of the net.

It was 2-0 with 15 minutes remaining as Mokoro converted a low cross to give the visitors some breathing space, but they were still in for a nervous finish.

Four minutes after that, AmaZulu goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini could not hold Marc van Heerden’s shot and Tom knocked home the rebound.

But the home side could not force an equaliser and so AmaZulu’s good run continues, while Abafana Bes’thende suffer a second straight loss as they now look forward to a Telkom Knockout quarterfinal against Ajax Cape Town on Sunday.

The aurthor of this article is a lier. I wonder why you guys don't tell him so. He really doesn't know the facts of this match. 1stly,AmaZulu's goal was not scored by Mokoro and it was not a low cross. The ball was a long diagonal ball played by Mokoro and Mbhele out paced Arrows defenders to score with a powerful shot. Arrows goal was NEVER a rebound from Kapini. The ball was chipped inside the box, Shange chested the ball back to Tom who scored. So I don't know which game you talking about. If you don't know the facts, just write the score only. @Homeboy, you can say that again man.

Noting that I am one of those people who are vocal when things go wrong, it is also important to give credit when it is time to do so. I'd like to congratulate everybody involved in taking the team to where it is now, from the directors to the ball boys. I'd like to encourage them to maintain the momentum. Thanks.
