Econet Premier League siblings Sefothafotha footbal club and Lesotho Mounted Police Service played under the scorching sun at Police Training College on Saturday and the match ended 1-1.
Sefothafotha FC player Relebohile Mosebo scored the opening goal on the first half just a minute before water break.
Sefothafotha FC coach Mr Bafokeng Mohapi said the draw was not bad because they took that match seriously.
“We got so many chances that could have been conveted to goals on the first half, and we are going to work on shortfalls,” said Mohapi.
The goal scorer Mosebo scored the second goal in this season. He scored the first one against Matlama.
“Draw matches no longer excite us because we are playing very well,’ said Mosebo. He further said they failed to convert chances and match ended with a draw.
Semonye showed a lot of determination and fought very hard during the match. They equalised on the second half after being awarded a penalty which was scored by Ts’epo Seturumane jersey number10.
Mr Nthako Nalana, LMPS coach said Sefothafotha is still the LMPS team but junior to Semunye.
“We manage to draw after a bounce back on the second half because they got a goal before us on the first half,” said Nalana.
Nalana said majority of team are still at Police Training College under police training.
“They only play when we play home games and has been difficult for them to absorb the intensity of the league, and we end up experiencing draws or lose matches unnecessarily,” he said.
The the pass out of LMPS players who are at PTC on November 22 this year will benefit the team. LMPS holds position seven with 11points from three losses, three wins and two draws in their eight games.
On the other hand Sefothafotha is positioned 11, seven points, three losses, one win and four draws in eight games too.
