Positive Start For Green Lovers

PALAPYE: beMOBILE Premiership rookies Green Lovers shocked the visiting Selibe-Phikwe giants, Nico United with a 3-2 defeat in their opening fixture played at Serowe Sports Complex on Saturday.

The game started with both teams failing to string passes let alone threaten the 18 yard area until past the first quarter when Green Lovers in their 4-3-3 formation took the initiative and started taking the game to their opponents.

Sensing danger, Nico, who had been sitting on their 4-1-2-3 formation started to work themselves back into the game with their talisman Makgantai threatening on the right side, but failed to break into the box.
