Khubetsoana Kamela and Ts’iu Moorosi were on target as they fired Kick4Life to a 2-0 victory over Swallows and return to winning ways in the Econet Premier League.

After losing to Galaxy last Sunday, Coach Bob Mafoso said they had to keep their heads up high and not dwell on the past result. This, he said after the match.

“Losing is never nice but we could not be stuck on the result we would never change. We had to prepare for today and I am happy with the result, although there is still a long way to go,” Mafoso noted.

There were a number of changes in the starting XI, Moorosi starting ahead of Tseliso Botsane and Ralekoti Mokhahlane returning from injury. Moorosi nearly punished Swallows goalkeeper after realizing he is off his territory but the ball went over the bar in the 12th minute.

Few minutes later Kamela found himself in a good space in the box but he blasted wide. Then in the 20th minute, Kamela was able to score from the spot after the ball was handled in the box.

Kick4Life were awarded a set piece just outside the box and Mokhahlane’s in-swinger found Moorosi who was able to tap in and register his first goal of the season in the 27th minute. Phafoli tried to respond for Swallows but his efforts went wide in the half hour mark.

When the game resumed from the break, Posholi almost caught Thetsane off-guard in the 51st minute but his strike went over the crossbar. Lietsisi produced an excellent turn in the box and missed the target with inches in the 65th minute.

Botsane was introduced in the 74th minute and the latter nearly added his name in the score sheet with a header. Moruti Thamahane then made a brilliant tackle to block Mohau Khali in the dyeing minutes of the game to ensure that Thetsane keeps a clean sheet.
