Maritzburg United beat Platinum Stars

Posted: 16 March 2011 Time: 21:44

Diyo Sibisi's fourth-minute strike handed Maritzburg United the win over Platinum Stars at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday night.

United looked a side possessed in the opening minutes and were rewarded for their efforts with the early goal.

After a swift passing movement Felix Obada found himself with the ball, unmarked and six yards out from goal, but his shot struck the woodwork.

Luckily enough for Maritzburg the ball rebounded straight into the path of Sibisi who made no mistake, firing the ball home from close range to make it 1-0.

Shortly after the goal Platinum Stars came to life and should really have found the equaliser in the 11th minute. Mbulelo Mabizela supplied a well weighted cross into the box and Thabo Mongalo met it with a powerful header, but his effort just skimmed the wrong side of the upright.

However, despite that scare United were back on the attack two minutes later when Rudolph Bester let fly from the edge of the box, but his shot sailed wide.

As the half came to a close Fadlu Davids should have doubled his side’s lead, when he rose highest to meet a Byron Hendricks cross, but his header was saved by Tapiwa Kapini.

Platinum Stars came out a renewed side and took firm control of the match in the second 45.

Four minutes into the half Herico Botes pulled the best out of Shu-Aib Walters, with a stinging shot from 14 yards out. Walters showed his acrobatic ability, diving to his right to save.

11 minutes later Thusa Phala scared the United keeper when his 12-yard shot just skimmed the wrong side of the upright.

In the 70th minute Almiro Lobo also came within inches of drawing his side level when his 18-yard shot also narrowly missed the target.

Thereafter, Platinum Stars continued to press forward in search of the equalising goal, but they could not find it and the game finished 1-0 in favour of Maritzburg United.

though the empire gown matches properly on most physique varieties, it can be in particular suited for all those brides having a smaller sized bust due to the fact it attracts interest towards the neckline and produces definition. Additional accents and material embellishments, for example capped sleeves or fragile bead function, formal dresses will aid to draw interest for your chest and neckline, plus sizes wedding gowns and for that reason develop the illusion of the fuller bust. Oddly sufficient homecoming dresses , this reduce may also function to hide a significant bust by managing and minimizing the dimension of one's breasts on account of the customarily square neckline of your empire gown. In contrast to other necklines that accentuate breast definition evening women dresses , for instance the scoop neck or v neck, the Empire's square lower modestly addresses bigger breasts. The style from the empire gown can also be perfect for covering other
