Downs crush Celtic in TKO

Dove Wome opened the scoring in the fourth minute, and forced the second, an own goal from Limbikani Mzava, three minutes later, while Khama Billiat added a brace.

Patrick Tignyemb was at fault for both of the opening goals. First, his poor clearance allowed Wome to fire a low ball into the back of the net.

Soon after, Wome’s set-piece took a deflection off Mzava’s head to beat him at his near post.

Billiat nearly made it 3-0 on 24 minutes, when his lob sailed just over the crossbar.

Seconds later Ruzaigh Gamildien tried a long range shot that went narrowly wide.

Billiat volleyed home from Bryce Moon’s high cross on the byline to put the score beyond doubt on the half-hour mark.

The Zimbabwean almost had a second when he hit over the crossbar from three yards out, but was blown for offside anyway.

And Billiat made it 4-0 just three minutes into the second half, after Malajila held the ball up nicely before tapping it through to his red-hot teammate, who slotted past Tignyemb.

Joel Mogorosi had a shot comfortably saved by Kennedy Mweene on 77 minutes, in what was the goalkeeper’s first real touch of the match.

As the game drew to a close, the pace drifted off and Sundowns went on to extract revenge over their Telkom Knockout loss against Celtic in the Final last season.
