Notwane on next FA cup round


Notwane have qualified for the next round of the Orange FA Cup after the two first half goals proved to be enough to knock out Uniao Flamengo Santos over the weekend at the SSG grounds.

As early as the sixth minute, Notwane broke the deadlock with their first chance at goal. Captain Kudzanai Machadzani took a giant leap to deliver a powerful header which went past the goalkeeper, Matshwenyego Koobonye, to open the scores. Notwane did not keep their foot off the pedal as they probed to double the lead.

On the 22nd minute, they got the second through Sithembile Mbuqe. The latter received a pin point pass from Joseph Pyele who saw him unmarked inside the box and he made no mistake. Santos tried to stage a comeback but the goalkeeper for Notwane, Basimanebotlhe Moilwa's superb saves denied them on few occassions. Santos striker, Tumelo Sentle, nearly found the back of the net but the woodwork came to Notwane's rescue. Notwane head coach, Thaloba Nthaga who recently just rekindled with the team after his short stint at Masitaoka, was impressed with his side's early domination.
