The goalkeeper was closed down and failed to clear. Goitseone Mponang’s shot beat a hapless defender between the posts for a first goal. Temperatures were soaring and the pace was low. While the hosts tried to build with possessional play, Stars plucked long balls into Chouka’s box and looked dangerous on attack.
