Moroka Swallows lose on penalties to Maritzburg United

Posted: 20 October 2012 Time: 23:00

Maritzburg United are through to the Telkom Knockout Cup quartefinals after a 4-3 penalty shootout win against Moroka Swallows.

The game finished goalless after 120 minutes, but the home side held their nerve in the shootout to emerge victorious on a very rainy night.

Lefa Tsutsulupa went close in the opening minute with a shot towards the near post, but Shu-Aib Walters did enough to save the danger.

Peter Petersen almost scored an own-goal on 15 minutes, and the home side can thank Walters for a very good save in the 21st minute when he stopped Katlego Mashego from scoring an excellent goal.

In the 37th minute Cuthbert Malajila got his head onto a cross, but could not get direction or power on his header.

Swallows came close in the 62nd minute when Lerato Chabangu and Mashego combined, but the ball slipped away from Mashego just when it mattered most.

A minute later Mashego got into space down the left channel and on the edge of the danger area he pulled the trigger, only to mis-time his shot.

In the 73rd minute the impressive Philani Zulu picked up a loose ball outside the area and fired in a shot, but it was partially blocked and deflected out for a corner.

The game needed penalties to decide a winner after the teams ran out of ideas in the final third of the field, and Luvengo Mngomeni missed the decisive spot-kick.

I watched the game until the end. I was impressed by both teams stamina. during extra time u could not tell that this players have plade over 100 minutes. Big ups to both teams for displaying a very good tactical game and worked hard to try to win the game instead of relying on match officials to win them the game. Hard luck swai swai, u win some U loose some

Onother great game that we were denied an opportunity to watch , is between Free state stars vs Golden Arrows. How can SABC and supersport not televise such a great game. They both went for Supersport fc vs Ajax which was very dull. I must congratulate the referees. They apply good referieng, honesty and fairness to all other 15 teams except for only 1 team that they have to follow the script of making sure this team goes through up to the final. Who ever plays this team must not say u have never been warned

Those Spineless Gorilla rats... Are very happy about this, as they know that Maritzburg has saved them from the looming embarrassment that Swallows would've given them... Even the biggest rat, "Pipi Guardiola - Skop & Donner strategist" can't hide his excitement; but yet they continue to claim that they are the biggest team,with fearless galaxy quality...but u shiver whenever swallows & supersport are in the picture, mxm!!!

Pls keep consoling ur broken zebra heart,in whatever way it seems to fit you...if you havent noticed by now that in order for 1 team to win/ or score goals,one must make mistakes,if then there are no mistakes then no team will score since both teams will be perfect...

Yes vele I am happy, the reality is that Swallows and SSU are formidable sides and you would want to avoid them in knockout competitions, but having said that, if I were to draw SSU in the next round we would be definitely up for the challenge. Do you think Man Utd would prefer to face Barcelona instead of Benfica

My heart is sore, very much disappoited with my captain and coach, really, who on earth chose those penalty takers? Aint the captain supposed to lead by example? why on earth Obada, Luvhengo, Mabalane had to take penalties? Why Obada had to finish the game whilst he was not effective? Is he(Obada) paying to be on the lineup? Why Lefa, Mathebula didnt take those important penalities? Only the coach can answer those important quesitions.

I see Ernst is quietly doing his job solidifying Maritzburg. He's not doing badly in the league either.

Good going, Ernst!
