Baloyi scoops two Top Eight awards

Posted in News on Dec 07, 2001.

Operation Teka Hinkwaso - clean sweep - swiftly moved into top gear for Amakhosi on Thursday night as goalkeeper Brian Baloyi collected two prestigious awards at the annual BP Top Eight ceremony awards.

Baloyi, who had a cracking Top Eight campaign in the month-long tournament, collected the best goalkeeper of the tournament and the player of the tournament awards.

The dread-locked goalkeeper, nicknamed Spider Man for his acrobatic saves, kept a clean sheet throughout the campaign until the final against Sundowns where he conceded two goals in regulation time.

The final ended in a 2-2 draw and Amakhosi went on to win in the dramatic penalty shoot-out, where tempers flared in the Sundowns camp and captain Daniel Mudau slapped his teammate Charles Motlohi for not taking a penalty kick.

The top scorer award was a three-way split between Raymond Seopa (SuperSport United), Benedict Vilakazi (Orlando Pirates) and Daniel Mudau (Sundowns).

The referee of the tournament went to Achmat Salie, who officiated in four of the seven matches, including the final.
