Mo-Faya FC and Sailor FC players tussle for a ball in a match that ended 6-0

Sailor Football Club trounced Mo-Faya FC in a thrilling football encounter that ended 6-0 at Conti Grounds on Sunday.

Former Orlando Pirates player, Daniel “Sailor” Tshabalala team looked the better of the two sides as they attacked their opponent mercilessly from the first whistle. It came as no surprise when Sailor’s striker Martin Mochosa broke the deadlock in the 20th minutes to give his side a 1-nil lead.

Ten minutes to interval Mochosa intercepted a pass and caught Mofaya’s defence napping and managed to put the ball in the back of the net to increase his tally.

In the second half Sailor FC continued where they left off, and took the game to the visibly dispirited opponent. Mofaya’s defence failed to clear the ball and Zachariah Khasa capitalised on the mistake and headed home a sitter to put his side 3-nil up.

Mofaya tried in vain to find the elusive goal and thought they have decreased the deficit but their goal was disallowed as the referee ruled it offside.

In the closing minutes of the game Tshepo Mpshe put a finally nail into Mofaya’s coffin when he outran the defence with the goalie to beat but saw his first shot parried away and bounced back to him and netted home the second time.

In a post match interview Sailor FC captain Mzwakhe Tshabalala who picked an injury earlier in the game said, “Tactically we were good; we played according to the coach’s instruction and let’s give credit to the guys.”
