Kick4Life went down to a bitter 1-0 loss to Linare on Saturday in the Econet Premier League at LCS grounds.

The team has now suffered three loses in a row and as a result, have dropped to tenth position. Junior ‘Maba scored in the second minute of the game and his goal proved to be the winner for Linare.

Kick4Life then made two attacks, first in the 8th minute but Moruti Thamahane’s header was blocked by Rethabile Rasethuntsa, then in the 13th minute, Rasetabale Kalosane and Sanele Phantse collected well upfront but Phantse’s pass to Khubetsoana Kamela was too strong.

Moments later, Bily Pulumo fired a fierce shot from the set piece but Sele Thetsane was equal at task, saving the ball from going into the net.

In the second half, Coach Bob Mafoso introduced Tsepang Ntsenyane to help both offensively and defensively.

In the 53rd minute, Pulumo managed to create space for himself and nearly punished his opponents as his shot missed the goals slightly.

Kamela was unfortunate to miss on two occasions, first going on a face-to-face with the goalkeeper and his shot was cleared away before seeing his efforts passing the goal post with just inches.

Bonang Mohapi also came on as a substitute to give Kick4Life the much needed energy levels at the front but it was not the day as the Old Europa side dropped points at home.
