Week's finest moment

The game between defending champions, Gaborone United (GU) and current contenders for the throne, Township Rollers was a good advert for Botswana soccer. A good crowd turned up for the match while both teams dished good soccer. Two moves in the game stood out. In the 27th minute, Joel Mogorosi of Rollers took off on the right and delivered a perfect cross, which found the head of Thapelo Balepi. Although the header flew inches wide, it was an exciting build-up which had fans clapping in appreciation. GU had their moment in the 72nd minute when Steven Maposa's header from Sageby Sandaka's cross from the left was destined for the top corner until a classy intervention from goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe.
