Gaotwesepe Legoreng of FC Satmos
Friday Nov 07, 2014. 15:19
Last season’s Botswana Premier League rookies FC Satmos, who for a very long time believed they were a team of the future, have turned into Gaborone United’s bread and butter.
After receiving three goals in the cup game in their own backyard they got the same in round two in midweek. The league game saw Satmos making some changes starting in goals where former national team goalkeeper, Kagiso Tshelametsi, was replaced with Morambiwa Ndlovu.
The latter got three put past him as well, and despite being trained by former national keeper Mooketsi Mading, the Satmos lads seem to be struggling in the goalkeeping area.
United’s new Namibian striker, Benson Shilongo, has made scoring against the Selibe Phikwe lads an entitlement. He scored his second goal against Satmos again on Wednesday.
In the eight games played this week 17 goals have been scored which is slightly above a goal on average. With the Zebras struggling to convert goals, this is viewed as a plus to the national team coach who now has a choice in selection.
Four of the games played were drawn, but the good thing is they were not goalless draws. Only three teams - Satmos, ECCO City Greens and Sankoyo Bush Bucks - failed to hit the back of the net. Coincidentally the three come from the northern part of the country.
Gaborone United were the biggest winner, managing to be the only side to score three goals and still not concede. The league will be taking a break while focus shifts to the Mascom top 8.
