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.

Leopards are pathetic, honestly I dnt think they deserve to play in the psl, not becos they lost to Downs, but simply because they dnt up their game,,,they must just go to the NFD togethe with Mpengezi FC,,make way for other teams who are more hungrier, like United Fc, Thanda Royal Zulu & MPumalanga aces. They must just leave us with Bobe, Monama & dat Mabund dude, Chifs & sundowns will scrabble for the rest.

Most of people who comment here are full of Laziness- Mediocrity and Complacency. No wonder I seldom log-in. I cant have an Intellectual conversation with any of them. Typical of Chiefs supporters.
