CITY Rangers FC came from behind to claim a hard-fought 2-1 victory from gutsy Young Tigers FC during their Motherwell Football Association (MOFA) Mayoral Cup clash that took place at the Motherwell NU 2 Stadium on Sunday.

Tigers made things difficult for Rangers in their counterparts’ first third. Lucky Teyise was rewarded with a world-class goal in the 27th minute, while Sinethemba Zephe and Zolani Bodo kept on tormenting Rangers’ defence.

However, Rangers clawed back into the game when Siyabonga Dayile came up with his side’s opening goal in the 38th minute. The two sides went to the half-time break sharing a 1-1 draw.

In the second half, Tigers made their intention to win clear, but Rangers sucked the opposition into their territory, looking to catch them on the counter-attack.

Rangers won the game 2-1 after Sinoxolo Kalipa scored the winning goal in the 47th minute.

Skipper Sibusiso Dolosi and his defence made sure that they maintained their lead until the fat lady sang. The defenders of the Mbumba side made sure that they kept things very tight at the back with Tigers being tightly marked.
