According to Crusaders’ vice-captain Thabiso Phakedi, Etimar were leading 1–0 from a penalty but his team equalised in the second half from a free kick crossed by Thato Khaile and scored by right-back Collin Lefoto.

“I was watching the game from the bench and before I went on coach Lefa [Lefate Makunyane] gave me some good insight on how we can win the game, and a few minutes after I went on, I was able to score the first goal for the team, all thanks to the promptings of coach Lefa,” said Lefoto.
