Early goal sinks Stars


An early goal after four minutes from Tshepo Moletsane was enough to seal the home side’s passage through to the next round.

Theo Shiluvani was the provider with a great cross that was buried by the midfielder, who’s over exuberant celebration lead to a booking.

Stars did have a chance to level matters when they won a penalty five minutes from time, but home goalkeeper Welcome Moses saved Prince Gumede's spot-kick.

Just a point separates these two sides in the First Division Coastal Stream, but the home side, were on the whole, superior on the night and deserved their victory, with Siya Mngoma performing heroics in the visitors’ goal.
