Kick4Life dropped 3 points against Liphakoe after being reduced to 10 man in the Vodacom Premier League on Thursday afternoon at LCS grounds.
Mongezi Mologovane was shown a controversial second yellow card in the 65th minute, resulting in the team conceding 3 goals thereafter. Relebohile Thulo had given Kick4Life the lead in the 34th minute with a stunning shot.
It was a game of emotions as both teams looked to pick maximum points. Lebohang Tjoloba and Liteboho Mokhehle were absent in the team, while Rapaulina Maime and Mokoteli Mohapi returned to the starting XI.
Mohlomi Makhetha continued to display his classic show in the pitch, denying Neo Skhosana in the 63rd minute to keep his side in the match. Liphakoe were however, fortunate to level matters just 2 minutes after Mologovane was sent off, Patrick Nyarko heading the ball into the net in the 67th minute.
Kick4Life tried to redeem themselves, but Makhetha’s shot went wide in the 74th minute. In the 82nd minute, Rethabile Letseka found himself in a good space outside the box, and he fired far at Rorisang Moabi’s reach to put Liphakoe upfront.
Kick4Life continued to send more men forward, searching for an equalizer, and they were nearly rewarded for their efforts in the 84th minute, Sanele Phantse missing with just inches at the goal. Skhosana then sealed victory for the visiting them in the 85th minute with a follow up at the keeper.
