Notwane moved closer to promotion to the elite league following their 3-1 victory over Prisons XI in an entertaining Debswana First Division South League match played on Saturday at SSG Ground.

The top of the table clash attracted a record crowd this season in the lower division with a lot at stake for both sides.

Before the match, Notwane were sitting at the top of the log but only a point separated the two sides.

Prisons XI were eyeing a victory to displace Notwane at the top while Notwane knew that a victory for them would extend the lead at the summit.

It was the hosts, Prisons XI who took the lead in the 30th minute through former Extension Gunners winger, Kelello Kgosimore. However, Notwane responded through their defender Ronald Selemane in the last minute of the first half with the two sides going into recess tied at 1-1.

In the second half both sides threw missiles at each other, but it was Notwane who hit their target in the 67th minute when Prisons XI conceded a penalty.

Notwane goalkeeper, Michael Pepukani stepped up and coolly converted to give Notwane the lead. Prisons XI increased numbers going forward in search of an equaliser but were punished yet again with five minutes remaining when Notwane captain, Amos Godirwang powered a header past The Warders’ goalkeeper, Ontiretse Gaothobogwe. The goal put the game far beyond Prisons XI’s reach and wrapped up an important victory for Notwane.
