TLOKWENG: Champions, Jwaneng Galaxy progressed to the semi-finals of the Mascom Top 8 with a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Gaborone United (GU).

On a Friday evening inside the Royal Aria Stadium, GU took the game to penalties with a 1-0 win in regulation time. Galaxy carried a 1-0 lead into the second leg. 

As early as the eighth minute, Takunda Sadiki had a one-on-one with the goalkeeper but his shot was saved. Five minutes later, Sadiki had the chance again, but this time around he beat the goalkeeper and tried to set up his team-mates but the defence blocked the attempt. The Reds on the 22nd minute had their first sight at goal as Patrick Kabamba showed quick feet to beat his marker inside the box, but with his left foot he shot over the bar. On the 36th minute, Thapelo Motlhanka came close to giving GU the lead but he shot over the bar. Motlhanka again, with three minutes to time put a teasing cross for Kekaetswe Moloi but the striker headed wide as the two sides went into the break level at 0-0.
