Marauding Township Rollers ran riot over Palapye-based side, Motlakase Power Dynamos by humiliating them 5-0 in a Mascom Top 8 game played at the National Stadium, on November 11 and Mapalastina will forever thank Segolame Boy’s hatrick, Kobamelo Kebaikanye, and an own goal by Chouka.

Township Rollers made their intention clear of teaching Chouka a good footballing lesson on the third minute of the game, when their utility player, Boy severely punished them.

Immediately after that goal, Township Rollers scored yet another goal on the fourth minute through Kobamelo Kebaikanye after Motlakase defenders failed to shield their goalkeeper given that they created a lot of space for their opponents.

The two early goals seemed to have caused panic and confusion in the Motlakase camp, since most of the time they were ball watching and on the 15th minute of the game, Motlakase defender Phillip Ofitlhile netted yet the third goal for Rollers after failing to clear the ball that was kicked by Motsholetsi Sikele.

However, on the 27th minute, Chouka could have pulled one back, through Lerato Botshelo but lack of composer in the box let him down.

Motlakase defenders continued with their mistakes by giving Rollers players more room, and Segolame Boy used the manna from heaven by scoring two quick goals on the 38th minute and some seconds before the half time break to make it 5-0.

Second half was a goal drought since no team managed to score, and the game ended with 5-0 resulting in Rollers qualifying for the semis with an aggregate of 8-1.

After the game, Motlakase coach, Agang Mogotsi said their game plan was clear, that the boys had to play compact football, adding that he was disappointed when his side just resorted to playing haphazardly.

He said in the first half, the whole team was not functioning given that they gave possession easily in their own half. Mogotsi, however said during half time, he told his players to play as per his instructions.

“I told them they should let Rollers play in their own half and we keep our own half so that we guard our defence all the time since Rollers were scoring goals every minute,” he said. Rollers coach, Madinda Ndlovu said they had a great game plan, to win the game in the first half, adding he was happy that the team managed to stick to the game plan.

He said as part of their game plan, they used speedy and offensive players, because they went into the game with two yellow cards, hence they wanted to kill off the game as quickly as possible so that they can substitute them,” he revealed.

Township Rollers has now joined BDFX1 and Gaborone United in the Mascom semi-finals and the winner between Mochudi Centre Chiefs and Nico United.
