TS Galaxy brushes off Baroka

TS Galaxy FC finally ended their barren run of results in style yesterday as they swept past Baroka FC 2-1 at Mbombela Stadium in a 2021/22 DStv Premiership tussle.

Menzi Ndwandwe was the hero for the Rockets with a stunner at the death. He came off the bench to snatch the winner in the dying minutes of the game for the Rockets.

The KwaMakhutha born marksman produced a moment of brilliance as he turned and unleashed the thunderbolt to beat Elvis Chipezeze at his far post.

It was a strike worthy of winning any football match. Baroka broke the deadlock in the 17th minute through Evidence Makgopa.

He got in between Bathusi Aubaas and Igor Makitan to head his side into the lead. Mashweu Mphahlele was the provider with an exquisite delivery from the right and side and Makgopa notched it to the back of the net with aplomb.

Mthobisi Mngomezulu restored parity for the Rockets before the interval. He converted the penalty in the 41st minute after Tshegofatso Nyama was fouled in the box.

Nyama was causing all sorts of havoc for Baroka and Chipezeze came to their rescue.

The Rockets are now off the foot of the table. They are finally on the mark after nine games.

The club has now amassed five points and is lying 15th on the log standings. On Friday, they will travel to Lucas Moripe Stadium to face SuperSport in the DStv Premiership at 5:30pm.
