Mikia Kalati

LCS were rampant in the Econet Premier League at the weekend humiliating Kick4Life with a 4-0 demolition in the first of the double header at LCS Ground on Sunday.

Mpitsa Marai’s side made their intentions clear early in the match and scoring an early goal through Sepiriti Malefane.

Setho Moshoeshoe added another goal to give Masheshena a comfortable lead going ito the half-time break.

The two players were back again in the second half as they added a goal apiece to complete a 4-0 route over Bob Mafoso’s side. The win helped the side maintain their second place on the log and keep pressure on the pacesetters, Matlama.

The correctional service side is second with 13 points and are a point away from the top.

In the second match Mojela Letsie rescued a late point for LDF against Lioli. Tse Nala had led through defender Shetsane Ramoseeka but were denied the three points by a late Letsie goal.

The draw helped the army side remain in fourth and a point ahead of Lioli with 11 points. Tse Nala are fifth with 10 points after six games.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Bantu continued with their revival after a slow start to their title defence walking away with all the three points against LMPS at Maputsoe DIFA Ground.

Thabo Lesaoana scored early for James Madidilane’s side with Lazola Tjokojokwane coming from the bench in the second half to make it a comfortable 2-0 for the Mafeteng outfit.

The result saw Bantu move into third with 11 points after six games.

On Saturday, Matlama maintained their unbeaten run thmping Swallows 4-0 at Ratjomose Barracks.

Phafane Tšosane opened the floodgate for Tse Putsoa with an early goal and was followed by another goal from Lehlomela Ramabele before Lebajoa Mosehlenyane and Motebang Sera added their names to the scoresheet.

Tse Putsoa remains the only side that is still unbeaten under the mentorship of Thabile Secker since the 2018/19 season started.

Meanwhile, Majantja and Liphakoe drew 1-1 stalemate in the southern derby at Mohale’s Hoek DIFA Ground.

The home side took a lead in the first half through Keketse Snyders but it was cancelled out by a goal by Tsepang Makapa.

The last match on Saturday saw Likhopo finally coming off the mark in the 2018/19 season with their first win of the new campaign by registering a 2-0 over Sefotha-fotha.

Santi Ntsohi and Morena Mohlominyane each scored once as the Red Army ended their poor run of results.
