Chiefs took advantage of the magnificent surface to show some silky skills
and teach their less illustrious opponents a lesson in domination.
The home side went ahead as early as the third minute, Shaun Permall scoring
his first of two on the night. Permall was the quickest to react in the box
and the Transfoot defence looked all at sea.
A flurry of attempts followed from the home team, and one had the feeling
that if it wasn't for some innovative goalkeeping, the score could have been
Arthur Zwane and Stanton Fredericks had good chances in the first 10
minutes. Zwane shot from a tight angle and found the upright, while
Fredericks' low driving shot was kept out.
Muhsin Ertugal's team had to wait until the 19th minute before doubling
their score. The movement begin deep in defence, and some good square passes
resulted in Mozambican international Jossias Macamo connecting with a cross
and finding the net from a tight angle.
While the Chiefs frontmen were having fun at their end, Brian Baloyi was
probably fighting boredom at the other. With Chiefs dominating possession,
he only had to make a stop using his hands once in the first half.
The second half started in a slightly more sedate fashion, but that all
changed in the 52nd minute when an own-goal from Transfoot skipper Mazinot
kept Chiefs in the hunt for goals.
Mazinot can count himself unlucky as his attempted clearance of a Zwane
corss looked over the keepers outstretched hands into the top left-hand
corner of the net.
Such was the domination of the home team, that the visitors only secure
their first cross 15 minutes into the second half. Needless to say, their
inexperience showed and nothing came of the opportunity.
Permall gave Chiefs their fourth about eight minutes from time, connecting
with a cross from Pule and heading past the Transfoot keeper.
Chiefs will be more than pleased with their four goals looking ahead to the
