Baroka FC kick Golden Arrows out of Nedbank Cup
Cape Town’s Golden Arrows were kicked out of the Nedbank Cup on Sunday afternoon in a match held at Chatsworth Stadium after a 2-0 loss to NFD side Baroka FC.
The match kicked off at a high note, with Arrows taking the lead when Nduduzo Sibiya struck an upright kick straight from the edge of the box in the sixth minute.
But things took a different turn the tenth minute when Baroka FC found their footing and started waging mad attacks on Arrows. Were it NOT for Arrows’ goalkeeper, Ricardo Gross, Baroka Fc could have had the first score as early as the tenth minute when Mfundhisi Chauke had his first shot around the post.
Just as they were about to go for half time, arrows’ Musa Bilankulu ran into Donald Makondelela of Baroka FC bringing him straight to the ground in the box, and resulting into a penalty for Baroka.
Kenoshi stepped up to take the shot, but Gross was all eyes and managed to stop it, only for Kenoshi to go for the rebound and slot it in, earning Baroka FC the first goal.
The second half began with Arrows showing signs of equalizing and emerging as the victor team. But on the 74th minute, Baroka regained shape and had their second goal courtesy of their striker, Loyiso Simandla.
The game went on with none of the teams scoring, resulting into a 2-0 win for Baroka FC.
