Mighty Stars FC beat Klipfontein FC by 8-0

Mighty Stars 8-0 league victory.

Mighty Stars celebrated an 8-0 win victory against Klipfontein FC in their Midrand Local Football Association league encounter at Rabie Ridge Stadium on Sunday.

Klipfontein came off four straight wins, climbing the log from the bottom half to the top eight. They hoped to tie things up and collect more points when they faced league title chasers Mighty Stars.

Mighty Stars dominated the game from the onset, getting a goal within three minutes, followed by another three minutes later. The score sheet was opened by the captain of the team, Junior Nenzhelele and Mlungisi Shabalala.

The second half was much more competitive as both teams tried to close at the back and push forward. Mighty Stars dominated in the first 60 minutes, using the wingers to launch attacks and crosses into the box.

Mlungisi Shabalala received treatment on his leg.

The goals came raining from the 70th minute when Mighty Stars forward Jabulani Mahau opened his scoring account and scored two goals, making the score 5-0. Nenzhelele was substituted due to injury replaced by Mandla “smash” Khoza. Ten minutes into the game he scored his brace making it 7-0.

The last goal was scored by Banele Gcinilizwe coming from the bench ending the game with three points in the bag. Klipfontein coach Shadow Monina said they played well coming from previous games winning four in a row to climb the log table.

“In terms of discipline I am very disappointed. The boys lacked responsibility and we will be trying to bring new players from the bench for the next match and try to spice things up,” said Monina.

Junior Nenzhelele Mighty Stars captain said they played very well. It was an easy game, they got early goals but few mistakes were made which needs to be fixed during training.

Alpheus Lebeko Mighty Stars coach said the opponents got many chances but they, unfortunately, did not capitalise on them.

“We need to continue the momentum and play with intensity as the league comes to an end. For our next opponents we do not have to allow them space to play from the start,” said Lebeko.
