Ten-man Arrows overpower Cosmos


A ten-man Golden Arrows outfit beat Jomo Cosmos 1-0 in an entertaining Castle Premiership match played at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Arrows defender Billy Rantsoana was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence in the 90th minute, but his dismissal had no effect on the outcome of the match.

The home side should have taken the lead in the 12th minute when Nhlanhla Ngubane was through on goals, but Cosmos 'keeper Walter Khumalo reacted quickly and collected the ball at his feet. The self-same Khumalo then pulled off a stunning save to deny Alton Meiring just four minutes later.

Cosmos midfielder Anthony Laffor delivered a brilliant cross in the 33rd minute, but Kalvin Kadi failed to connect with the ball.

Norman Smith almost put Arrows in the lead in the 43rd minute; however, his long-range shot narrowly missed the target with Khumalo well-beaten.

The score remained at 0-0 at half-time.

Thokozani Mshengu pounced on a rebound and put Arrows in the lead in the 71st minute. This after Khumalo failed to hold on to a Richard Hekenyane's shot.

Cosmos then threw everything at the home side, but the Arrows defence held firm until the final whistle.
