Match report: Black Leopards lose to Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 7 May 2013 Time: 21:29

Mamelodi Sundowns beat Black Leopards 5-2 in an action-packed match on Tuesday night.

Teko Modise, Elias Pelembe and Hlompho Kekana made it 3-0 to Downs inside half an hour, before Mongezi got one back for the hosts.

Nyasha Mushekwi added a fourth for Sundowns, before Tiyani Mabunda gave Leopards hope with a second, but Pelembe put the final nail in the coffin.

The visitors stunned the home fans when they took an early lead trough Modise. Sundowns’ captain connected well with Pelembe’s marvellous pass and chipped the ball over Postnett Omony.

Pelembe was then on the receiving end of a brilliant through-ball from Kekana and, finding himself with acres of space, slotted home to score his first goal of the season.

Sundowns made it 3-0 in the 28th minute when Kekana unleashed a rocket of a shot from a free-kick that ripped the back of the net as Leopards conceded their 54th goal of the season. 

Leopards went some way towards avoiding an embarrassment when they grabbed their opening goal 10 minutes after Sundowns had scored their third. Their captain Bobe was unnoticed at the back post and headed home Raymond Monama’s cross.

But Mushekwi compounded Leopards’ misery as he was on hand to poke home after a blunder from Omony.

Lidoda Duvha capitalised on Sundowns taking their foot off the peddle when Mabunda unleashed a shot from range that sailed into the back of the net in the 65th minute.

But Sundowns were not done scoring. Pelembe showed his skill when he dribbled past three Leopards defenders on the left side and then scored his second of the season from close range to make it 5-2.

I concur with you he is finished I can see that cloud to modise as well cause he always struggle to play his own football. who knows his Austin Martin drives him nuts even in the game of football. lol

The problem with Leopards is poor management,they always go for coaches who they can control .Free State Stars is a small team like leopards,but because they have better management ,you will never see them fighting relagation,my appeal to mr David Thidiela is to employ capable people to run his team or else he will get cardiac arrest and die.Non of his sons is capable of taking the team to new heights,Fhulu,Rendani,Tshifhiwa ,Thendani, and Livhuwani,are still wet behind the ears,as for the team manager Sam Khaphathe ,he is the most clueless team manager i have ever seen,he should be a bricklayer

The FOURensic Detectives won this game in honour of the memory of my beloved blogger Sweyts who died during the Marikana debacle. May his soul rest in Yellow peace. He lived to witness the Yellow machine practicing their FOURensic job on the noisy underperforming Match Officials FC.

Let me not waste time entertaining babboons. My biggest concern is sandilands. He is always standing waaay out of his goal. I don't know what kind of a fool is this boy. Mo diouf, Tshinyama, tiyani maluleke, and others I haven't mentioned! He has conceded over 5 goals this season because he thinks he's a sweeper. Demet this boy mara!

Hope this was no fluke, we need Sundowns back for the sake of competition. We can't rely on "seasoners" like PS, FSS or Swallows- one season they are up, the other they are fighting relegation.

Next season PS will be fighting relegation

Tidiela must go to coaching classes. I saw him instructing the coach wat 2 do. No wanda they are favorites candidates 4 an automatic relegation. Dey mst stop intfering wth the coach's work. Period. Disgusted!

It serves this Vendas right with their unpatrotic attitude, go to NFD Chippa will follow you! Two useless teams nxa!

We on the other hand, we reclaim the Glory and Wear Gold come the 18th!!

I think you are being tribalist, talk about Tidiela not as a Venda, Sotho, Zulu, Xhosa, or what what? but as a chairman of BL who failed his team. I know U can do better than that Khosi, no offence.
