Norman Kumatse came on as a substitute to score a thunderbolt and help Kick4Life secure a point against LCS in the Econet Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

LCS had taken the lead late in the first half with Mojalefa Ramabusa’s finish from a set piece moments before the break. Liteboho Nkune and Tebello Ntene were both impressive, while Bonang Mohapi returned to the field of play after being out on injury.

Moruti Thamahane had to pull a tackle to deny Ntaitsane Makara in the 17th minute. Nkune also made a great touch on the ball to direct it off Thapelo Tale’s path in the 25th minute. Khubetsoana Kamela combined well with Tseliso Botsane upfront but his pass was intercepted in the 32nd minute.

Then during two minutes of added time before the break, LCS were awarded a set piece and Ramabusa came from the far post to hand his side the lead.

Two minutes in the second half, Kamela was disappointed to see his free kick landing on the crossbar. While he was at the peak of enjoying his second game, goalkeeper Motlatsi Sebapala had to be stretched off the pitch in the 57th minute after sustaining an injury.

Another substitute was introduced, Kumatse came on for Mohapi in the 60th minute and it took him (Kumatse) just three minutes to turn things around when he unleashed a bullet shot, leaving goalkeeper Kopano Silase shocked at the posts.

Paballo Mafeka had to make a good tackle to clear the danger in the 69th minute. With nine minutes to play, there were some good movements on the ball between Kumatse and Botsane. The game ended 1-1 and Kick4Life collected a valuable point on the road.
