Arrows down 10-man Aces

Posted: 2 December 2009 Time: 17:40

Golden Arrows beat Mpumalanga Black Aces 2-1 thanks to a 90th minute winner on Wednesday afternoon.

Njabulo Manqana secured the points for Abafana Bes’thende with a late strike after Thanduyise Khuboni had given the hosts the lead, only for AmaZayoni to hit back though Clifford Mulenga’s penalty.

Aces were dealt a major blow in just the fifth minute of the match when veteran striker Gilbert Mushangazhike was shown a straight red card for a foul on Philani Shange. The Arrows attacking midfielder had to be replaced soon after, as striker Koffi Tanoh entered the fray for the home side.

Abafana Bes’thende did finally break the deadlock in the 58th minute, with Khuboni firing the ball past Ramogadi after a good cross by left-back Mzuvukile Tom.

Arrows should have doubled their lead with just over 20 minutes to play when substitute Richard Henyekane shot wide from close range with one of his very first touches of the ball.

Aces did finally get their reward for a gallant performance when the referee awarded them a penalty in the 83rd minute after a foul on Maleka from Musa Bilankulu. Mulenga converted the spot kick to make it 1-1.

The Mpumalanga side then nearly snatched a second goal just three minutes later when Lehumo Itshegetseng headed just wide of the target from a corner kick.

But they were left heartbroken when Njabulo Manqana popped up in injury time to score a stunning long range goal that handed Arrows a 2-1 victory.
