Bloemfontein Celtic beat Free State Stars in Telkom Knockout

Posted: 18 November 2012 Time: 17:44

Bloemfontein Celtic will face Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout Cup Final after defeating Free State Stars 3-2 on Sunday afternoon.

A dramatic match at Charles Mopeli Stadium saw Phunya Sele Sele twice surge ahead in regulation time before being pegged back by Ea Lla Koto’s Dove Wome. Joel Mogorosi then scored the visitors’ winner early in extra-time.

The goalless first half saw Celtic spurn two great chances through Thabo Nthethe and Lyle Lakay, while Stars, playing with a strong breeze at their backs, hit the woodwork through Sadate Ouro-Akoriko and tested goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb with several long-range shots.

The second half saw Celtic take advantage of having the wind behind them, as Letladi Madubanya broke the deadlock on 52 minutes. The midfielder picked up a loose ball in the middle of the park and surged forward almost unchallenged before stabbing a shot beyond Mweene.

It took Stars just under 20 minutes to fight back and level the game. Wome’s long-range grass-cutter was fumbled by Tignyemb; the keeper did just enough to deny Mvula from the loose ball, but he was then powerless to stop Wome tucking it home at the second attempt.

Celtic reclaimed the lead with just under 10 minutes of regulation time to play. Substitutes Mogorosi and Lerato Manzini combined, with the former providing a great pull-back from the by-line that was swept home, with the aid of a deflection, by the latter.

Yet the visitors’ lead lasted just three minutes as Wome fired home from a free-kick in the 84th minute to make it 2-2. Tignyemb was once again at fault, positioning himself poorly to allow Wome to float the ball inside the far post.

The match went to extra time, and just four minutes into the first half Celtic went ahead for the third time. Mogorosi met a cross from the left flank and powered a header toward goal from the edge of the box.

Mweene made a rare mistake and allowed the ball to pass through his hands, making it 3-2 to the visitors.

Well done celtic. U did well, but allow me 2 announce that this is the end of your fairy tale as my beloved Sundowns will put u 2 rest and show Pie-ratz that they failed where Sundowns can dominate. Its gonna be a great finale on the 1st of December at Ellis Park and ultimately we all know Yellow will be the colour of the night.

Well done Siwe. Now just make sure you finish the job you started.

Partly Siwe ruled by the Gold and Black Spirit.

It is hot in hell, nice in heaven and cold below Kaizer Chiefs.

Ask those below what they see.......They see Major's Golden Balls.

Ja if I was Sundowns I would be more worried about the log position than a cup. We don't want to see a repeat of what happened to Jomo Cosmos in 1993 where they reached the semi-final of the champions league only to be relegated in a domestic league. Surprisingly the same players won the league with Orlando Pirates in 1994.

Well done Siwelele. This was a great game to watch. A derby must be like this, end to end staff. I personally wanted FSS to win but I'm happy. With Siwelele there.
