PSL: Leopards earn draw against Celtic

2012-12-20 00:00

BLOEMFONTEIN — Black Leopards ended their two-match losing streak in the Absa Premiership when they held Bloemfontein Celtic to a 1-1 draw at the Free State Stadium last night.

Mongezi Bobe scored the equalising goal for his side late in the first half after Celtic had taken the lead through Lerato Manzini.

The first chance of the match fell for the away side in the 11th minute as Thomas Madimba connected with a cross from Joshua Obaje, only to send his shot wide of the target.

Celtic took the lead in the 28th minute as Manzini buried his shot into the back of the net after his initial headed attempt had been saved by Posnet Omony, 1-0.

However, the lead lasted for just four minutes before Bobe netted the equaliser for his side with a well-taken strike from just outside the box which found its way to the bottom corner, to make it 1-1.

The hosts had a chance to restore their advantage in the 43rd minute, but Jacky Motshegwa fired his shot over the bar as the two sides went into the break deadlocked at 1-1.

In the second half Patrick Tignyemb produced an excellent save to deny Brian Amidu, who had unleashed a powerful strike from the right side of the box.

Then in the 54th minute Lyle Lakay delivered a dangerous corner into the box, but Mogorosi was unable to make full use of it.

The rest of the half saw both sides continuing to press forward in search of the winning goal, but they were unable to find it.
