No letup in Likhopo’s woes

Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mikia Kalati

FOR­MER premier league soc­cer cham­pi­ons Likhopo’s woes con­tin­ued af­ter they were thrashed 1-4 by de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Li­oli in a match played at Set­soto sta­dium on Sun­day.

This was the eighth de­feat in 10 matches for the Red Army which re­cently parted ways with coach Tšepo Hlo­jeng.

A brace from Tšoanelo Koe­tle and a goal apiece from Bushy Mo­let­sane and Tumelo Khut­lang gave Li­oli a de­served vic­tory while Lehlomela Ram­a­bele weighed in with Likhopo’s face saver.

This was a se­cond 4-1 vic­tory for Tse Nala who also ac­counted for log lead­ers Kick­4life by the same score line last week­end.

The match be­tween Bantu and San­dawana in Quthing failed to pro­duce goals. The re­sult was how­ever enough for the Mafeteng side to re­tain third po­si­tion. Bantu also failed to score against Sky Bat­tal­ion in mid­week.

San­dawana are in tenth po­si­tion.

Mean­while, Mat­lama put be­hind them the mid­week res­ig­na­tion of coach Moses Maliehe to thrash Rovers 3-0 at Bam­batha Tšita Sports Arena.

Phafa Tšosane who missed the mid-week draw with San­dawana scored a brace while Mote­bang Sera scored the other goal for Bantu.

In an­other match played at LCS Ground, Makara Ntait­sane scored the only goal to hand LCS max­i­mum points against base­ment club Butha Buthe War­riors.

LCS are now fourth af­ter hav­ing beaten Likhopo in their pre­vi­ous match.

The last of the Sun­day matches be­tween LMPS and Sky Bat­tal­ion at PTC Ground failed to pro­duce goals.

In the Satur­day matches, Kick­4Life main­tained pole po­si­tion af­ter Mo­rapeli Le­soetsa scored the only goal to hand them a hard-fought win over LDF at LCS Ground. Linare also took an­other step to­wards con­quer­ing the in­sta­bil­ity that rocked the team a few months ago as they beat Liphakoe 2-1 to reg­is­ter their se­cond vic­tory on the trot.
