Kick4Life were knocked out of this year’s LNIG Top8 competition following their 2-0 loss to LDF on Saturday at Setsoto Stadium.

They were left frustrated after they threw and used everything in their power to get a goal, but LDF goal-minder Teboho Ratibisi was just blocking their way. In the 11th minute, Ratibisi was put under pressure by Tseliso Botsane who blocked his shot and Ratibisi was marvellous to stop the ball from going in.

Thabang Rabi tried his luck but he rifled too high at goals in the 22nd minute. LDF were then awarded a set piece outside the box and Tsolo Mokapane curled the ball over the wall to give his side the lead in the 36th minute.

Rasetabele Kalosane was introduced at the start of the second half and Obakeng Modirwa was rested. Kick4Life were almost punished for losing possession of the ball as LDF caught them on counter but Seeiso Lerotholi was alert to clear the danger in the 54th minute.

Kick4Life were now sending more men upfront and Captain Moruti Thamahane was unfortunate to miss a goal in the 59th minute. Lerotholi made a cross into the box and Ratibisi punched it away in the 64th minute.

Tseliso Botsane was at his usual best, making LDF defence run for their money as he used his pace. In the 75th minute, Botsane released a bullet and he was blocked away. Ratibisi was then booked for time wasting.

With ten minutes to play, Kick4Life were dealt with a blow when Ralekoti Mokhahlane committed a second bookable offence and he received his marching orders. Despite being one man down, they kept on pressing and Kalosane should have done better when he found himself unmarked in the box but he headed straight to the keeper.

LDF then made sure they cement their place in the last four when Koete Mohloai netted home in the 89th minute.
