Kick4Life were edged 2-0 by the defending Econet Premier League champions, Bantu on Wednesday afternoon at Setsoto stadium.

The Old Europa team was left disappointed as they now recorded their third consecutive loss. Bantu managed to get an early goal as Hlompho Kalake unleashed from close range in the 3rd minute of the game.

An attractive transitional play in the middle of the park saw Tseliso Botsane missing out on Mokoteli Mohapi’s pass in the 13th minute. Sele Thetsane was called into play to pull an excellent punch to deny Litsepe Marabe in the 25th minute.

Bonang Mohapi was brought down on the edge of the 18yard and Seeiso Lerotholi’s efforts were easily cleared by Mkwanazi Motlomelo in the 31st minute. Tsietsi Khooa was marvellous to deny Lepekola Seetane a goal as he cleared the ball on the line with few seconds before the break.

When the game resumed from the interval, Obakeng Modirwa replaced Paballo Mafeka. Botsane should have capitalised after Khooa missed a header but he fired wide at goals in the 49th minute.

Mokoteli was punished for losing possession of the ball infornt of goals as Lazola Jokojokwane released a grounder, doubling A-Matso Matabele’s lead in the 54th minute. Botsane was gifted with another chance in the 74th minute but he was led down by his ball control.
