BAROKA FC 2 BLACK LEOPARDS 1
The third of six matches in the Promotional Playoffs was played at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday 8th June 2017 and resulted in the home side Baroka beating Black Leopards for the first time ever and go to the top of the mini league standings at the halfway point of the Promotional Playoffs.
Letsoalo found the empty net after just 11 minutes when his teammate Moeti collided with Leopards keeper Maluleke and with the keeper lying injured and the referee allowing play to continue, the Baroka man tucked the ball into the empty net for the opener. Letsoalo grabbed his brace and put Baroka up 2 – 0 just before halftime after great cross from the right from Richard Matloga. Baroka led 2 – 0 at halftime.
Leopards were a lot more purposeful after the break and pulled one back though substitute Zimu halfway through the second stanza assisted by some shocking goalkeeping by Oscarine Mauluke. Zimu had another chance moments later, but headed against the upright of the Baroka goal.
The victory puts Baroka at the top of the mini league with 4 points, 2 points clear of Stellenbosch FC and 3 ahead of Leopards. Neither of the other teams have registered win in the Playoffs so far.
