Kick­4life main­tain top spot

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

KICK­4LIFE re­tained the top spot in the 14-team Vo­da­com Premier League with a 3-1 vic­tory over trou­bled Linare over the week­end.

Les­lie Notši’s side has amassed 16 points from seven games.

New sign­ing Bokang ‘Lefty’ Mothoana was the star man, net­ting a double in his first start of this sea­son while the league’s top marks­man Thabiso Brown weighed in with the third to bring his tally to seven goals so far.

The much an­tic­i­pated clash be­tween Li­oli and Bantu failed to live up to its billing, end­ing in a goal­less stale­mate at Set­soto sta­dium on Sun­day.

The point was how­ever enough to en­able Tse Nala to re­main in sec­ond po­si­tion while A Matšo Mate­bele are two steps be­hind in fourth.

The bat­tle of the bot­tom teams Butha Buthe War­riors and Rovers also failed to pro­duce the win­ner as the match ended in a 1-all draw.

War­riors an­chor the ta­ble with just a point while Rovers are sec­ond from bot­tom with two points.

San­dawana se­cured their first vic­tory of the cam­paign edg­ing Liphakoe 3-2 in a five goal thriller at Ma­put­soe DIFA Ground.

Tau Msiu, Retha­bile Rasethuntša and Mo­ha­tle Kha­bele scored for San­dawana while Thabo Matšoele scored a brace for the Quthing based team.

On Satur­day, Mat­lama got the bet­ter of Likhopo as Tankiso Makhutla scored a late win­ner for Tse Put­soa’s sec­ond win on the trot.

The Moses Maliehe-coached side is in fifth po­si­tion af­ter five games and they are the only un­beaten side in the league this cam­paign.

The other match on Satur­day saw LMPS and LCS play out a 1-all draw at PTC ground, a re­sult that en­abled the police side to cling to third po­si­tion while LCS re­mained on 8th.

In the last match on Satur­day, LDF won 1-0 to end Sky Bat­tal­ion’s im­pres­sive run.

The rook­ies had reg­is­tered back to back wins by stun­ning Kick­4life a fort­night ago be­fore beat­ing Rovers.

As a re­sult of that im­pres­sive start to life in the elite league that has so far yielded four vic­to­ries, coach Tha­bile Secker’s side are in sixth po­si­tion and with 12 points.
