Maun: Thato Monowe’s solitary goal in the first half was enough to hand premier league debutants Sankoyo Bush Bucks victory over the highly fancied Extension Gunners in Maun on Saturday.

The win lifts Sankoyo to position eight in the log while Gunners drop to position nine. It was Monowe’s  consecutive goal in two games having scored in their 2-1 away loss to Police at Molepolole Sports Complex last week.  Gunners were without Moemedi Moatlhaping, but boosted of the services of Topo Piet and Monageng Thaele against the hard to beat at home Sankoyo Bush Bucks.

Gunners piled early pressure winning two corner kicks, but failed to hit the target. Sankoyo’s  new signing from Echo City Greens, Omatla Kebatho made his debut but was replaced with Gaongalelwe Dipateletso in the second half. Sankoyo scored in the eight minute after capitalising on  the Gunners’ defence error when a defender chested a back pass  carelessly into the path of the alert Monowe who powered  forward and slotted the  easy chance past gunners goalkeeper, Lame Tladinyane.
