K4L and LDF Top8 first leg ends in stalemate

The first leg of the LNIG Top8 between Kick4Life and LDF ended in a goalless draw on Sunday afternoon at Maputsoe DiFA Stadium.

The home team settled for a point and avoided conceding as they look ahead of the second leg that will be played at Setsoto Stadium this coming Saturday. The visiting team, LDF started pressing from the early stages of the game, and Thabo Mongali should have clinched the lead in the 14th minute, but he failed to direct his shot into the net.

Olomo Desire tried to find Obakeng Modirwa but he failed to connect with him in the 20th minute. Tebello Ntene produced an excellent skill and found Desire but the latter missed the target in the 31st minute.

Few moments before the break, there were some beautiful movements on the ball by LDF and Letlatsa Moshoeshoe missed the target.

In the second half, Thabang Rabi missed a bicycle kick in the box while Khubetsoana Kamela’s set piece went too high at goals. In the 52nd minute, Sele Thetsane was marvellous to deny Moloi a goal and kept Kick4Life in the game.

Rasetabele Kalosane was later introduced in place of Ntene who looked to be suffering from cramps. The introduction of Kalosane and Sanele Phantse saw Kick4Life starting to make threatening attempts at the front.  

Kamela was unfortunate to have his bullet shot punched away by Teboho Ratibisi late in the game. Meanwhile, there were some 2-1 losses to K4L U17 and Development from LDF in the LNIG U17 Top8 and C-division league respectively this weekend. Kick4Life ladies’ chances of clinching the Super League title are now slim after losing 3-0 to bitter rivals, LDF ladies on Saturday.
