Chiefs march past Stars

Posted: 9 December 2009 Time: 21:35

Kaizer Chiefs beat Platinum Stars 3-1 in a League clash played at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Stars’ goal was scored by Hendrico Botes and Chiefs’ were scored by Siphiwe Tshabalala, Jose Torrealba and Kaizer Motaung Jnr. Stars were down to 10-men in the 80th minute when they had Luis Renteria sent off.

After holding out and not conceding a goal in the opening quarter, Stars grew in confidence and with their first real foray forward managed to take the lead. The cross from Joseph Malongoane was perfect and Henrico Botes got above Thabang Rooi and headed the ball past Itumeleng Khune to put Stars a goal up.

Conceding the goal spurred Chiefs into action and they began to show more of the killer instinct they displayed in their previous two league games. As soon as they picked up their tempo, Chiefs found themselves back level with Stars.

Siphiwe Tshabalala crafted an opening for himself with as he stormed in from the left and as soon as he had a sight of goal he blasted the ball flat along the ground with his left foot past Tapuwa Kapini.

The second half was an exciting affair and once again Chiefs demonstrated their ability to finish strongly. For the second game in succession it was a hard working Jose Torrealba who came off the bench to help propel Chiefs to victory.

As Chiefs pressed for the winner, with chance after chance passing by, it seemed as though they would be kept out by some stubborn Stars defending. Their lucky break came when Josta Dladla was brought held back by Almiro Lobo inside the Stars 18-yard area.

Initially referee Jacob Frolick had allowed play to go on but was flagged down by assistant referee Shaheem Salot, who pointed out the foul on Dladla.

Jose Torrealba stepped up to take the spot kick, which Kapini saved diving to his left to block the ball. Not to be outdone, Torrealba was quick to the rebound and tapped it home in the 81st minute.

Stars played the final minutes a man short as Luis Renteria was dismissed for protesting the awarding of the penalty.

Three minutes later and it was curtains for Stars. Again Kapini could only parry a shot hit from distance by Jimmy Tau and it fell to the feet of Kaizer Motaung Junior, who had the simple task of touching it home to make the score 3-1 and give Chiefs the points.
