Highlands Park conceded an injury time goal to draw 1-1 with Baroka FC in an Absa Premiership match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night. The first half started positively with Baroka on the attack with Richard Matloga finding space inside Highlands’ box, but he fired over from roughly 12-yards out. The next shot on goal only came on the half hour mark when some sloppy defending by Baroka allowed Petrus Ngebo to get on the end of a cross from Mothobi Mvala, but the Highlands man also blazed his effort over from close range. The first half ended 0-0. The second half produced much more in terms of goal mouth action and Baroka nearly took the lead in the 60th minute when Richard Matloga found himself one-on-one with Tapuwa Kapini, but the Highlands goalkeeper thwarted him. Highlands then took the lead in the 75th minute when substitute Thabo Motlafi found the back of the net with a deadly shot from the edge of the box, 1-0. The visiting side tried to defend their lead after that and ‘parked the bus’ in defence, but it was at their own detriment when Baroka found the equaliser in the 90th minute thanks to a goal from Ranga Chivaviro, 1-1. Baroka (0) 1 (Chivaviro 90’) Highlands (0) 1 (Motlafi 75’) TEAMS: Baroka: Chipzeze, Banda, Chawapiwa (Onkabetse 53’), Chivaviro, Gebhardt, Kgoetyane, Madubanya, Makgaka, Makume (Mdatsane 77’), Maliba, Matloga (Kgaswane 59’).

The #MTN8Final, to be contested by SuperSport United and Cape Town City, will kick-off at 7pm. Tickets will be sold at TicketPro outlets including Spar countrywide. The 2018 MTN8 final has been widely billed as ‘Act II’ of the battle between SuperSport United and Cape Town City – following last season’s epic final which was decided on penalties. At stake is the prestigious trophy together with R8 million prize money for the winner. The loser goes home with nothing bar the appearance fee. Premier Soccer League acting Chief Executive, Mato Madlala said: “This is not just another final – but a match where both teams will be looking at either settling old scores (from last year’s final) or reaffirm that last year was not luck. The League, SuperSport United, Cape Town City and MTN took the decision that the Moses Mabhida Stadium will provide a perfect backdrop to this encounter. "We thank our partners MTN for always believing in our product. We believe that people will travel from Gauteng and Western Cape for this final on 29 September,” Madlala said. Moses Mabhida Stadium is, without a doubt, one of the country’s most iconic venues and has hosted historic finals. Mapula Bodibe, Consumer Business Executive at MTN SA said: “We are quite excited about the choice of venue. For us, it’s always been about taking the game to the people that part with their hard-earned cash to support these teams – the fans. Durban has successfully hosted the MTN8 Final five times since its inception and the passion of Durban fans for the game is undoubtable. We are convinced they will embrace us yet again.” She added that football fans still stand a chance, until the MTN8 Final, to win the R8 million in prizes whether their favourite top eight (8) team has been knocked out of the tournament or not. “To BE THE FAN that wins the ultimate LFS prize: R1 million in cash and a trip for you and seven friends or family to ANY football experience in the World next year, opt in by dialling *138*8# to enter the competition. Recharge with R10 or more to stand a chance to win big. In addition, MTN subscribers attending the MTN8 final will receive 500MB of free data at the stadium,” said Bodibe. MTN has launched “Goals For Charity” initiative and each goal scored during regulation time in the Final will qualify for a R100 000 donation to various charities to be chosen by MTN and PSL. At Quarterfinal level, the amount was R10 000 for each of the 10 goals scored in the four games. It stood at R50 000 per goal in the two-legged semifinals in which seven goals were registered. The MTN8 “Goals For Charity” kitty is currently sitting at R450 000. © Premier Soccer League
