beMOBILE Premiership side Police XI were shocked by Second Division outfit Mogobane United who won a pre-season tournament over the weekend.
The tournament featured Sua Flamingoes, Notwane, Mogobane as well as Police. The Jungle Kings lost 2-1 to Mogobane in the final.
When speaking to the local media after the final, Police head coach Maitumelo Lotlaamoreng stated that he was happy with his team's performance despite suffering a defeat to Mogobane.
“Such tournaments are very important to us because they give us a shape physically," Lotlaamoreng said.
"They also give us an opportunity to try combinations ahead of the season and despite missing several players today, I am happy that we were able to try out other combinations.
"We lost probably because of the attitude of the players because they underestimated their opponents in the final."
