The fourth edition of Botswana’s Mascom top 8 that resumed last week Thursday produced as many as fourteen goals across all the games.
The first game had four goals to show as debutants Police XI and defending champions, BDF XI drew 2-2.
Two of the top 8 games were played on artificial grounds at the Molepolole Sports Complex and the newly refurbished Serowe Sports Complex. Both Molepolole and Serowe are the two biggest villages in Botswana. The other two were played on natural grass at the Phikwe stadium. It was the first time that the Mascom Top 8 was played in Serowe.
Motlakase Power Dynamos were at home and they fell 3-1 to former champions Township Rollers. Kobamelo Kebaikanye was the star of the night and besides scoring two goals for his team, he became the first player to score a brace in the Top 8 at the Serowe Sports Complex.
With another four goals having been scored in Serowe on Saturday, the journey moved to the mining town of Selibe Phikwe where two teams from the mining area welcomed their visitors. Debutants FC Satmos were taken to the cleaners on Saturday by former champions Gaborone United with a scoreline of 3-0.
In a game that was watched by senior national team coach, Peter Butler, Satmos failed to come to the party and signs of immaturity were imminent in the game.
On Sunday, Nico United restored the pride of the mining town as they embarrassed Mochudi Centre Chiefs 3-0. It was not the first time that the two teams played in the Mascom Top 8 and it looks like Nico were all out for revenge. The first hat trick of the tournament was scored in this encounter by Richard Legwaila.
