Kalosane 2 (36, 85)
Kick4Life put on an impressive display as they thrashed Majantja 4-1 in the Econet Premier League on Saturday afternoon at LCS grounds.
Nkoto Masoabi extended his lead in the Econet Premier League Golden Boot race to 14 goals, opening a gap of 4 between him and Linare’s Rethabile Selonyane. On the other hand, Rasetabele Kalosane made his presence at Old Europa more songful with a brace while Bonang Mohapi continued his fine form with a goal. Majantja’s consolation came through Selialia Mohapi who converted a penalty.
Kick4Life looked like they had the match sewn up at half-time after goals from Masoabi, Mohapi and Kalosane, which all came from fantastic moves. Majantja suffered a blow in the sixth minute when they were forced to make two substitutes after their players collided.
Masoabi opened the scorings in the 9thminute with a comfortable tap in before Mohapi could double the advantage at 12 minutes, beating the keeper at the near post. Kalosane was denied on a follow up by the goalkeeper after Mohapi’s second attempt was cleared in the 17thminute.
However, that could not stop Kalosane from executing his mission as in the 36thminute, he managed to find the net after out-sprinting two Majantja centre backs at goals.
In the second half, the visitors made an early threat in the 46thminute but Fanya Lenka’s shot went straight to the keeper. Then in the 53rdminute, Richard Kran thought he had found the goal after beating Mohau Kuenane but he was denied by the post.
Majantja were now putting Kuenane into test and the Lesotho’s international had to pull one spectacular dive to deny Kheleli Kheleli in the 70thminute. They were however awarded a penalty after Likano Teele handled the ball in the box and Mohapi sent the keeper the wrong way to make it 3-1.
With him having a good day in the pitch, Kalosane compounded Majantja’s misery when he scored his second goal of the match in the 85thminute.
This latest result and performance ease the pressure on Kick4Life, who are now on 33points, and are looking to finish the season on a high.
