The Monitor :: City Greens Retain First Division Status








The result relegates Amahot to second division. The game started on a high tempo with both teams showing attacking instincts. It was after 13minutes of play when Hotspurs took control of the game starving Mamoja possession.

They played nice interchanges with opponents chasing the shadows and their dominance almost paid off in 18th minute. Omphile Mothathobi collected from the middle and played in their striker Mogomotsi Tlou whose low shot was saved by City Green shot stopper. Hotspurs launched another electrifying attack in the 23rd minute, Amantle Motswetla got the ball inside Mamoja danger zone and Barny Maiketso reacted quickly to put past the goalkeeper.

City Greens real chance came on the 42nd minute, but Hotspurs goalkeeper Kago Mmopi did well to deny Oarabile Powe from close range. They went into the

break trailing by a goal to nil.

In the second half, Mamoja coach Victor Puoeng made a swift substitution bringing in their trusted striker Thabiso Bante. They pilled pressure on Hotspurs defence and it paid off on the 78th minute when Powe’s rebound effort from the goalkeeper fell on Bante who slotted home to level matters.

The game ended with one all draw and City Greens won 4-3 on penalties to secure their status. Their coach Puoeng was happy with the result and praised his players for executing their game plan well. His counterpart Wame Mokoke said the relegation to a much lower division was a sign that they should regroup as a team and fight for an immediate return to the first division and eventually the elite league.
