Mmegi Online :: BMC win Lobatse derby








LOBATSE: BMC continued their dominance over town rivals Extension Gunners when they clipped them 1-0 in a tension filled beMOBILE Premier League game at the Lobatse Council Stadium on Saturday. An 84th minute Keoagile Kobe strike clinched it for BMC, the Ezinkomo, as they continue keeping top-placed Mochudi Centre Chiefs under check in the title race. Hard tackles were the order of the day as both sides fought for the bragging rights for the hilly town that BMC have won over the last couple of seasons.

Fierce rivalry between the two sides was expected with BMC having developed a liking to pounce on talent from the Peleng side ever since coach Daniel Nare crossed over from Gunners last season. Nare has since recruited defensive midfielder Kemmy Pilato to BMC and his latest acquisition Hendrick Moyo has left Gunners faithful nursing fresh wounds. Gunners found themselves on the back pedal in the opening minutes of the game as BMC launched numerous attacks. Ezinkomo threatened from the first whistle with Moyo coming close to punishing his former side after being set up by another former Gunners man Kenanao 'Flo' Kgetholetsile.

Kgetholetsile had a free header from inside the box two minutes later but Gunners keeper Raphael Nthwane coped well. Nthwane was called to action again in the fourth minute as

Kobe attempted a tap in from close. Motsholetsi Sikele proved to be a thorn in the Gunners' defence in many instances being fouled in dangerous areas outside the box. Gunners lacked creativity going forward and almost finished the first half without any definite shot at goal.

At the start of the second half, Nthwane came off his line to deny what could have been a BMC goal, reaching the ball just as Hillary Madzivanyika was about to finish. Referee Uyapo Julius awarded BMC a dubious penalty in the 71st minute when Kenny Gaontebale brought down Moyo inside the box. Kgetholetsile however missed the penalty. Gunners then found their footing and started looking sharp upfront. Boitshoko Zikhale, who had a silent first half was a marvel to watch tearing the BMC defence apart  but he was often let down by the final touch.

For BMC, Pilato had a field day in the defensive midfield role. Kobe had the last word scoring from a corner capitalising on some sloppy defending.

Gunners: Nthwane-Finkie Mothibi, Gaontebale, Kerapetswe Mosimanekgosi, Monageng Thaele-Loudry Tchape, Maano Ditshupo Oteng Moalosi (Phomolo Keimetswe 70), Mollen Mabe-Ofentse Mmipi, Zikhale
