Orlando Pirates beat Black Leopards

Posted: 20 October 2012 Time: 19:51

Defending Telkom Knockout champions Orlando Pirates moved into the quarterfinals of the competition on Saturday following a 2-0 win over Black Leopards at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The Buccaneers defeated Lidoda Duvha at this same stage of the TKO last year, and history repeated itself thanks to a brace from Zambian marksman Collins Mbesuma.

Pirates debutant Lehlogonolo Masalesa immediately showed his class, creating the opening goal in the sixth minute with a great cross from the right that was headed home by Mbesuma.

The striker had a good chance to double Pirates’ advantage when he turned inside the Leopards penalty area and shot on goal, but Posnett Omony made a comfortable save.

Just past the half hour-mark Omony again denied Mbesuma after some slick build-up play, while at the other end Ramagalela almost caught Moeneeb Josephs napping with a long-range effort that sailed just over the crossbar.

By this stage the home side had begun to get a foothold in the game, but on 39 minutes they were reduced to 10 men when left-back Thulani Ntshingila received his second booking.

Mbesuma continued to look threatening in the second half and should have racked up a second goal on 57 minutes when Patrick Phungwayo provided an excellent cross from an overlapping run, but the Zambian headed over from close range.

Josephs was little more than a spectator once Leopards had been reduced to 10 men, but on 77 minutes he was forced into an excellent save, tipping over a long-range effort from Mongezi Bobe.

Mbesuma hit the outside of the post on 79 minutes, but his search for an elusive second goal ended just a minute later.

Omony gave away possession in a dangerous area, Ndumiso Mabena provided a low cross, and Mbesuma finished easily with a low shot to finally put the result beyond doubt.

If its not a dubious penalty its has to be a red card. To be honest , my self can't be proud if my team if it wins under mysterious situations. For the first time I saw Daniel Bennet taking to the field ,I knew there will be dubious decisions. He was strategically selected to officiate this game. Ill listen on the radio

Despite playing(Leopards) against all the odds u still show professionalism. I wonder how does it feel to be a fan of team that has been pushed to the finals for the past 2 seasons. Ill listen on the radio

When Champions dance, it is only because they have scored. When a zebra dances, it is because they have played a draw, faked injuries, wasted time and embarrassed all south africans

In a lighter note ; after the final whistle I saw Sangweni trying hard to explain himself to Moneeb, he even used his hands. I said to myself, its good that we have fanakalo language in SA

Nice Game all in all apart from those challanges by Ntshingila on Jali. He deserved both the cautions he got.
