Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows draw in MTN8

Posted: 18 August 2012 Time: 22:17

Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroka Swallows drew 3-3 in the MTN8 semifinal first-leg at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday night.

Chabangu, a former Sundowns player, was back his best forma nd had a hand in Swallows’ goals, scored by Felix Obada, Ashraf Hendricks and Bennet Chenene. The Sundowns goals were scored by Teko Modise, Hlompho Kekana and Edward Manqele. 

But while The Birds will be thrilled with the result, Sundowns missed some fantastic scoring chances and will be the unhappier side as they go home tonight.

Swallows struck in the sixth minute. Lerato Chabangu made a goal line save and goalkeeper Greg Etafia pumped the ball forward. Chenene did very well to draw his marker and find Obada who took his time and placed his low shot into the corner of goal.

Two minutes later Swallows grabbed a second goal when a Chabangu corner kick was met by Ashraf Hendricks’ head.

The ball went straight into the ground and looped towards the far post and snuck into the net. But Punch Masenamela had left his defensive position on the far post and will want to forget this silly moment.

Sundowns were soon back in the game when they scored from a Teko Modise penalty, but at his second attempt, after he was ordered to retake his initial spot kick because Etafia had moved off his line.

Modise went the same way again and this time his attempt was far stronger.

After the break Pelembe crossed to Manqele, but his downward header bounced into the hard surface and went over the bar, when it seemed easier to score than miss.

Then Method Mwanjale hit the upright with a low drive but in the 64th minute Sundowns found the equaliser when Hlompho Kekana side-footed a volley past Etafia.

But in the 75th minute, Chabangu spotted Chenene’s run and played him through on goal. Chenene drew the goalkeeper and finished expertly.

But Sundowns equalised ten minutes later thanks to an excellent Edward Manqele strike.

With a man on his back, Manqele turned and blasted a left footed shot from a tight angle, which gave Etafia no chance in goal.

Thami Sangweni came close with a shot across goal in the dying moments when he really should have hit the target.

@phefeni boy,sometimes it's not about how you play that determines whether you win or lose and again in this country there are few teams ,if any, that can claim that @home they are guaranteed a win,so second leg it's a 50/50 situation.YELLOW MACHINE.

Mamelodi Sundowns going nowhere slowly..........

Wednesday is a special day for the Khosination....
Don't talk about Wednesday, the weekend is not over yet and only High Perfoming Teams are playing this weekend and I don't know what you want here as Powerlines lost to Sundunusa by 4 to 1. Chokers will slaughter you any way, it does not help to play in vengeance all the time.

Neskeens or Napkins will be fired at Sundowns, how can he put Nyandoro on that defence, while they hv Arendse and Daniels is back from suspension en they recetly bought Dutch defender, i suspect Neskeens is smoking Legwathi's smelling sweat.

Boy you are so obsessed with chiefs, if you had a wife you would mistakenly call her chiefs at some point. You cant go a day without commenting about chiefs, if I didn't know better I would say you grew up supporting chiefs just like 70% of Pirates players.

Khosi for life.

The sooner we sort out that defence, the better, except for wednesday against Powerlines F.C where you just need to put any starting eleven since the rugby score is guaranteed. YELLOW MACHINE.

Your team was kicked long ago by Sundoms and u are busy exposing yourself to us ukuthi aninabafazi nino Phefeni by making unnecesary noise instead of just accepting ukuthi your team got an early exit of a nearly dozen of goals..

Don't worry Khosi, just watch BUCS control the round ball in one direction and you'll be sure of a Soweto Derby come MTN8 Final. 'Nuff therapy for you Khosi as you had a very bad week you'd like forget soon...
