Li­oli on a roll

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

RESUR­GENT Li­oli beat Mphat­lalat­sane 4-0 last Sun­day at Set­soto Sta­dium to leapfrog Bantu into sec­ond po­si­tion on the 14-team Vodacom Premier League ta­ble.

Tse Nala, who had ham­mered log-lead­ers LDF 3-0 the pre­vi­ous week­end to end the army side’s seven-match un­beaten league run, are now just one point be­hind the pace­set­ters on 19 points after eight matches, but with one game in hand.

Ba­sia Makepe swept in Li­oli’s first goal, with Mon­toeli Sonopo scor­ing the sec­ond while Jeremiah Kamele bagged a brace in the sec­ond half to com­plete the rout.

The Tey­ateya­neng-based now ap­pear un­stop­pable with a brand of at­tack­ing foot­ball the op­po­si­tion has found too dif­fi­cult to con­tain.

In another Premier League match played last Sun­day, rook­ies Lik­ila United handed Qoal­ing High­landers their fifth loss of the sea­son with a 3-0 thrash­ing at PTC Ground. The win took Lik­ila to fourth po­si­tion on 16 points after 10 matches, and are just two points be­hind third-placed Bantu, who how­ever, have one match in hand.

There was also a win for Likhopo who have en­dured a painful start to the 2014/15 cam­paign. Two goals from Seenyane Nthe­jane helped the Red Army to clinch only their sec­ond win of the sea­son, as they beat LMPS 2-1 at PTC Ground.

On Satur­day, Bantu and Mat­lama played to a goal­less draw, with the Likuena duo of Litšepe Marabe and Lisema Le­bokol­lane be­ing sent-off in the match played at Set­soto Sta­dium.

Still on Satur­day, LDF were held to a goal­less draw at home by LCS, to fur­ther halt their pre­vi­ously un­re­lent­ing march to­wards the cham­pi­onship.

Linare, whose sea­son had be­come char­ac­terised by loss after loss, con­tin­ued with their re­vival last Satur­day as they beat Sun­dawana 1-0 in Hlotse.

Let­latsa Moshoeshoe scored the only goal of the match, which took the team to 10th po­si­tion on the ta­ble. Kick­4life were also ram­pant on Satur­day, beat­ing bot­tom-of-thetable Nyenye Rovers 4-0 at Set­soto Sta­dium. Likuena striker Thabiso Brown scored a hat­trick with Mo­rapeli Le­soetsa com­plet­ing the com­pre­hen­sive win.
