Dalton got lucky in the 78th minute when Lucky Ledwaba found a gap in the Chicken Inn defence and sent a ball to the net to level matters at 3-3
Barkly West’s Chicken Inn came to visit Dalton Brothers at the Galeshewe Stadium on Sunday to honour their league fixture, and the Barkly West team got to walk away with half the match points after a six-goals deluge. In the Chicken Inn line-up for this encounter was former Maritzburg United player Godfrey Nongwe now retired to the Barkly West team.
By the time the match reached the half-time break Chicken Inn had a pretty comfortable 2-1 lead. The visitors were first to hit the back of the net seemingly a fraction of a second after displacing the ball at the centre spot, as Torress Fritz collected his first pass upfront and turned to shoot into goal for an early 1-0 lead.
After this first half shock, the sides settled into their respective patterns of shifting the ball around as they sussed each other out. Dalton was most at pains trying to put a composed face on the proceedings, but this attempt was disrupted by Chicken Inn’s Martin Sandt who scored the visitor’s second goal in the 34th minute.
In the 39th minute, Dalton went for broke and made a big play for the opposition’s goal. They were duly rewarded through Thadelwathy Koloane who netted to make it 2-1.
After the resumption of the second stanza, Dalton came back with some force as Koloane helped himself to a brace and netted the hosts’ second to level matters at 2-2. Chicken Inn was far from retreating from a good fight and launched their third goal into the Dalton posts via Samuel Williams to take a 3-2 lead.
Dalton got lucky in the 78th minute when Lucky Ledwaba found a gap in the Chicken Inn defence and sent a ball to the net to level matters at 3-3.
Chicken Inn coach Rayno Francis said his team was the better side on the day; however, the two “silly goals” that Dalton scored had caused his side the match. He was, however, happy to have survived with a point from the match, he said.
Dalton coach Lucas Motsemme said that there was much room for improvement. “There is still much work to be done on the team. Maybe after that, we will play a better type of football,” he said.
