Maritzburg United beat Bloemfontein Celtic

Posted: 3 March 2012 Time: 06:38

Following a goalless 90 minutes, two extra-time goals by Jabulini Ncubeni and Diyo Sibisi saw Maritzburg United knock Bloemfontein Celtic out of the Nedbank Cup on Friday evening.

Kurt Lentjies had the first chance at the Harry Gwala Stadium; his long-range free-kick forcing goalkeeper Thabani Stemmer into a smart save.

On 33 minutes, a quick Celtic counter-attack saw Lennox Bacela bare down on Francis Chansa, but the keeper did well to block his shot.

Just after the restart Thabo Nthethe came to the rescue for Celtic, saving the blushes of his keeper, who had spilt a cross with a host of attackers around.

Bacela wasted two more good chances, while Lentjies also squandered a glorious opportunity when he found himself unmarked in the box.

Chansa then did well to palm away a Nthethe effort, while Mulenga missed a chance of note when he made a run into the box, but then sent his left-footed shot wide.

So after a goalless 90 minutes, it took just second for Maritzburg to take the lead when substitute Ncubeni powered the ball into the back of the net.

Celtic had a efforts, but Sibisi made sure his side progressed to the last 16 when he slotted home from eight yards out.

Celtic hearts sunk further as Diyo Sibisi made the lead 2-0 as he slotted the ball into the back of the net from the 8-yard area to eliminate Celtic once more.

If Celtic want to score goals, they should try the Otorungu and Leonard combination. That Bacela thing is wastefull. He fluff ed clear cut opportunities. Clinton must bench him

I don't think this guy from Kickoff watched the same game as the one I watched. maritzburg won the game within 90minutes, it did not go to extra time so I don't understand why His heading reads ("Celtic knocked out in extra-time"). Congratulations to Maritzburg, I am waiting to see Bidvest Wits join celtic come friday the 9th. Swaiswai by Birth and will remain a swaiswai for as long ngisaphefumula.

Bloemfontein Celtic is so dissapointing , I wonder if te players understand the commitment and devotion of the people in Bloemfontein and its surroundings towards this team
Very soon once upon a team that enjoyed huge following will be reduced to a team like Wits with 15 Wits students declaring support for them only because they enrolled for sports management course at Wits

Men who patronize the services of commercial sex workers around the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra may be opening themselves up to armed robbery, as some of the sex workers are in league with robbery gangs, the Police have warned.

Two of such prostitutes, Helen Johnson, 26, and Victoria Farou, 23, both Nigerians working as prostitutes in Ghana, are currently in police grips for teaming up with a robbery gang to assault and rob unsuspecting male clients who patronize the services of the prostitutes.

The two ladies were arrested on February 27 alongside the robbers Abdella Yusif Ansah, 31, and Moses Nana 'Jerema' Asiedu, 38, after they had butchered and robbed an unsuspecting 'client' who had stripped naked with an erection on, thinking he was about to be 'serviced' by Victoria.

Narrating the story to DAILY GUIDE, Commander in charge of the Kaneshie District Police, Superintendent Fleance Adika, said the suspects were arrested at their hideout around 2:30pm that fateful day based on a tip-off.

The Police Commander revealed that the modus operandi of the suspects was that when a client approached any of the two ladies for sex, they would lure him to a particular hideout where the other suspects had laid ambush.

After the client had paid for the sex and removed his clothes, ready to unleash his libido, the sex worker would then prompt the other suspects to come out of their hideout to assault and rob the client.

Their 'cup got full' however on February 27, 2012 around 5:30am when an unsuspecting client, as usual, hired the services of Farou Victoria for one round of quick sex for which she charged him GH¢5 and collected the money.

The man then sheepishly followed Victoria to a wooden kiosk and quickly removed his clothes with his manhood nodding in anticipation of the hot sex he thought he was about to enjoy.

Interestingly, when he asked her to turn over for him to penetrate, she declined and started shouting. Immediately, her accomplices, Helen Johnson, together with four men, rushed into the kiosk and attacked the man who was then still naked with a hard on.

After giving him some beatings, the suspects attempted to rob the victim of his bag which he resisted, holding on to it as if it contained his soul.

In the process, the suspects, who were armed with a machete, slashed the man's hand and took the bag away, leaving him to his fate.

The man, name withheld, with a bloody arm, was however rescued by a motor rider who chanced upon the scene and rushed him to the nearest hospital for treatment.

The bag was said to contain an amount of GH¢2,0230, a Nokia mobile phone, a voter identity card, a National Health Insurance Scheme card, and other personal belongings.

A report was later lodged with the police, and based on a tip-off, the suspects were arrested that same day.

Two of the suspects however managed to escape.
The Kaneshie Police Commander warned individuals, especially travelers, to be cautious about their interactions with prostitutes.
