Kick4Life were left frustrated as they suffered a setback, losing 3-2 to the relegation threatened, Galaxy on Sunday afternoon at Maputsoe in the Econet Premier League.

Tseliso Botsane’s brace was not enough as Thabo Mphosi’s curler gave his side a much needed win against his former side. The loss drops Kick4Life to the fourth spot with 28 points and will have to work hard and reclaim glory as they have the fifth placed, Bantu breathing at the necks.

Botsane opened the scorings in the 8th minute with a header from Seeiso Lerotholi’s corner. Likano Teele, who just returned into the starting line-up was disappointed when he attempted to clear the ball and it went into his own net in the 30th minute. Tlou Billet then made a good run with the ball in the box but his pass was too strong for Mpeli in the 34th minute.

Just when it looked like the game would go into the interval with a stalemate, Thabo Mafatle released a rocket from the middle of the park, beating Sele Thetsane at the top corner to give the home side the lead into the break.

Lepekola Seetane was rested in the second half, and Rasetabele Kalosane came on. Liteboho Nkune who was playing his second consecutive match made a deep cross in the box and goalkeeper Ntsane Molise was marvellous to fist it away in the 51st minute.

However, Botsane was able to find the net once again in the 56th minute to give Kick4Life hope. Paballo Mafeka followed with a powerful shot and Molise was alert as he stopped the danger.

Galaxy were then awarded a set piece just outside the box in the 72nd minute and Mphosi superbly curled the ball over the wall to score. Kick4Life tried to level matters but it was just not their day as they missed the chances.
