Mamelodi Sundowns beat Free State Stars 2-0 away

Posted: 21 December 2011 Time: 21:34

Mamelodi Sundowns are top of the table going into the mid-season break, after a 2-0 win over Free State Stars.

Surprise Moriri and Lebohang Mokoena got a goal in either half at Charles Mopeli Stadium, handing Ea Lla Koto their first home defeat in the Premiership this season.

The Brazilians take a three-point lead at the top of the log, where they will stay for two months.

In the eighth minute Sundowns took the lead when Moriri slammed in a close-range shot, after a free-kick from the in-form Teko Modise fell to him inside the 18-yard area.

Modise had a powerful shot on target soon after, but Kennedy Mweene was up to the task and tipped it around the post.

Stars then had a couple of chances to draw level, but Sadate Ouro Akoriko shot wide before Saname Wome blasted over the bar.

Then, 10 minutes before half-time, Clayton Daniel and then Wome both shot wide, in what could have been game-changing chances.

Moriri almost bagged a brace before the break, against from a Modise free-kick, but his header from close range was grabbed by Mweene.

The second half began with Sundowns coming out all guns blazing, and Stars playing on the counter-attack, and both sides missed a number of chances.

Edward Mnqele forced a save out of Wayne Sandilands on 54 minutes, but on the hour mark Sundowns extended their lead, when Mokoena connected with Modise's cross to make it 2-0.

Mnqele then blasted over the bar 13 minutes from time.

Free State Stars were reduced to 10 men in the final minutes, when Akoriko was sent off, although they had a chance to get one back when substitute Morou Zakari fired a header over in injury time.

Catch us if you reloaded, Shapa Dawana Shapa!!!

Just dont forget that u need to donate 3 points to Pirates, Mbuyane and Sox are ready to collect.

This is the team i fear more than any, they have quality players, they have a strategic coach, wise fans and a swagger.

But only one things stands in their way, Orlando Pirates.

Wonder: On Teko, Boss u dont know how happy i am to see The Navigator navigating, these days he is googling. The boy is genius.

Thanks to Motsepe n Khoza for not being selfish on this boy.

As soon as Pitso is gone, Teko must take his captaincy in the national team.

@west lesandawana

Some fans never cease to amaze.., the same useless team you refering to is the one that whipped your beloved team.

Again, there is nothing special about your win last night coz Chiefs also beat FS Stars.

But i must admit your team is playin the most entertaining football.

While we hav to wait for 2 months for psl to resume. No games, we need to cum with a plan to keep de noise on and loud as ever. Let's me allow chimps fans to drink intakunyisa and post their crap on dis blog. Let's me allow rats fans rob downs fans their blackberrys and pc's to post their loud messages.
The birds who are suffering from de climate change need to settle down so dey can s.hit on dis blog.
Thank u King for being an original football lover by refusing to praise mediocrity wins by some psl teams. Let's make next year a year to booi dose teams dat play bad futball. Let's ensure de psl brand lives to de euro standard.

We are de fans and we hav to be entertain regardless of the final result.

yellow submarine! Well done boys. Now, all we gotta do is keep our cool, dont look at what others are doing, take it 1 game at a time. And we will be champions again. Oh madandawana, i still dream of the day our boy George Lebese comes home where he belongs! Mark my words, he will come home!

Steve Khomphela I told you that you cannot stop Downs form, on Tuesday you said you will collect three points from Downs. Now is Visa Versa, why did you lie to us. When did you beat Downs Steve? Downs is a big team you cannot talk about Downs like that. My advice to you is try to close your Mouth sometimes. Don't always answer if you don't have an answer please boss.
Masandawana players thanx guys, Christmas came early for us thanx. Lebese and Khune your welcome to the Brazilians.
Ka Boyelo Masandawana
