Polokwane City brings Sundowns down to earth

Polokwane City beat Mamelodi Sundowns 3-2.
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Polokwane City have beaten Mamelodi Sundowns for the second time in the ABSA Premiership this season.  Rise and Shine came back from a goal down to win 3-2 in a tension filled match played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The win is a moral booster for the Polokwane based team who were not doing well last year.

The win for Polokwane City moves them to eleventh position on the log.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane risked playing George Lebese who has not seen much action this season.  The coach was rewarded when the former Kaizer Chiefs player connected a cross from Hlompho Kekana.

The combination of Themba Zwane and Percy Tau confused the Polokwane defense.

And had all their attempts been on target, Sundowns would have been leading 4-0 half way through the first half.

This was a grudge match after Polokwane City beat Sundowns in their own back yard last year.

Sundowns were made to rue their missed chances after they failed to wrap the match in the first half. They conceded two goals in a space of one minute as Polokwane led 2-1 in the second half.

However, Sundowns regrouped and Percy Tau dished a delightful through pass that was scored by Oupa Manyisa.

And when everyone thought the match was heading for a two all draw, Rodney Ragagalela rewrote the script and once again got the better of his former coach Mosimane.
