Mamelodi Sundowns beat Black Leopards 5-1

Posted: 30 October 2011 Time: 17:24

Mamelodi Sundowns will be donating R50,000 to breast cancer research, after beating Black Leopards 5-1 on Sunday.

Ahead of the match Brian Baloyi told KickOff.com that the club would donate R10,000 per goal they scored, in honour of October being breast cancer awareness month.

Nyasha Mushekwi and Katlego Mphela got a brace each, and Richard Henyekane added a fifth, to make up Downs' impressive scoreline.

Khetowakhe Masuku got the only goal for Leopards.

Lidoda Duvha, who conceded four goals in the final half hour of the match, will look back on some missed opportunities early in the second half.

The result sees Sundowns move back to within three points of leaders SuperSport United, while Leopards remain second from bottom, two points ahead of Jomo Cosmos.

The first half was a subdued affair until Downs broke the deadlock three minutes into added time, with Mushekwi chipping the ball over the advancing Posnett Omony after sprinting onto a great through ball.

Leopards had chances to equalise in the early stages of the second half – Mongezi Bobe and Rodney Ramagalela both spurned good chances that originated out on the flanks.

Mushekwi doubled Sundowns' advantage on 63 minutes, beating Simphiwe Vezi to Teko Modise's corner kick and scoring with a good header.

The Zimbabwean was replaced by Mphela soon afterwards, and 'Killer' immediately made it 3-0, cracking home a right footed shot.

Leopards scored a consolation goal on 85 minutes, with Masuku's brilliant direct free kick, but further strikes from Richard Henyekane and Mphela in the 87th and 91st minutes meant his effort was all but forgotten.

I wish we donate every week when we play, if we can score so many
We can go far, but on that there is still more work to be done,
Especially in ur midfield that's wher I think Neeskens nids to be worked on
MorrI and Kekana @ times are found wanting, with the better and much quicker
Opponents, we wll be exposed, as for Khenyeza I rest my case,Neeskens when Richard
Is fully fit plz start with him, as for Mr sushi Its better if he start from the
Bench he'll see that we can do much without him.
The matter of suppoters nids to be adressed, I thought by moving away from Master peaces, was about to commodate more spataters by its bin a shamfull
1 game @ the time

I want to congratulate Downs but this Lordjerry need a galfriend or a boyfriend since he needs attention: relevance shows not only maturity but uhat the blood flows in one's brain....As a small fanbase yet 5 times champs (talking bout the PSL) Well done to Downs, we needed this win and by the way, Leopards will be giving so called 'big teams' a run for their money: Teko ibhoza hate him or love him

mushekwi is not bench material. if he has no place in sundowns' first team his agent should consider taking him to ajax, they lack strikers there and could benefit a lot from mushekwi.

The average Pirates attendance for last season was 3000, boy are u drunk.... How is dat possible we played you twice there and there was 25000 fans there.... But i think you are in denial downs doesnt have supporters period we dont care if it was because of choice or what...

The lowest attendance at Orlando last season was arround 5000 which is 25 percent of the stadium BBK"s words on Soccer Zone.... By the way the big majority of european supporters were born into the teams they support so dont come here with that stupid mentality of choice..... Football 101 was mastered at the University of Orlando.

Congrats to Bafana ba Setlaela for beating a dead leopard that gave Orlando Hobbos a free way to the quarter finals of Telkom. I heared that at Loftus the crowd has increased by more than 100% instead of 900 fans that were attending games at attradgeville, this is great news for SA soccer.

Leopards should just be relegated already....every a.sshole team wins against these incompetent idiots

Hey wena Lordjerry bothata ba hao keng monna? You also don't have support from your family, friends and your fellow Pirates fans, that's why you are so obsessed with support. Anyway it's a good thing donating money for such awareness and maybe Downs should consider donating brains to the poor Lordjerry.

Thank you guys. If you keep on playing like Sunday game, believe no one can beat us in PSL. Please improve a little bit you will conquer AFRICA. Big team perform like you. I saw you playing Shoe Shine. Guys you reminded me players like Buns, Phil Masinga, Benneth Mnguni, Joel Fire, Hlopi Magolela, Daniel Mambush, Zane Moosa, The General Roger Futumba etc. TK your improving at each Downs game, keep it up Bra. The Leaque is for Downs, I have no doubt about it. Well done to the Supporters who make it to Loftus Versveld. Our next game is Dinaledi, I am sure of three points. Ka boyelo Masandawana
