Gunners suffer back-to-back defeats
13 Nov 2023
After a promising start to their First Division South League campaign with two consecutive victories, Extension Gunners have now suffered two consecutive defeats.
On Sunday, this past weekend, it was Tlokweng United who welcomed the once high flying Lobatse giants to the lower division with a solitary strike to collect maximum points after City Polar scored three past them at their iconic old council stadium recently.
Second half substitute, Kopano Kgamanyane steered the home team in front with a deft finish with 15 minutes left on the clock.
The more experienced former elite league campaigners did not show maturity in front of goal as poor decision making cost them.
Gunners attacking midfielder, Boyo Lechaena was one of the culprits as he shot straight at the advancing Tlokweng United keeper after a defence splitting pass from the midfield. Efforts from Pako Modikwa were also thwarted by a water tight Tlokweng United defence.
Kgamanyane’s strike pushed the Tlokweng boys to the third spot while Gunners went down to seventh position in the 12 team log.
