A hat trick by the short Orlando Pirates striker was good enough to send the visitors packing out of the CAF Confederation Cup. As if the 1st round 2 goals were not enough for the Buccaneers, the hosts took tonight’s game to the next level much to the jubilation of their supporters. The stadium may not have been full (the weak point our local teams are struggling with)but the few that were at the historic Orlando stadium enjoyed to the fullest. One wonders as to why the South African based team conceded 2 away goal. Mounana looked weak on all angels.
Manox ‘wa le bhakhaniya’ Maobane is one happy fan who could not stop celebrating after the game. ‘I am very happy tonight, I think the guys went all out with the intention to send the message to the fellow Africa teams that South Africa is all blessed with football talent. They played a very good football, everyone gave it their all, I’m so excited, their teamwork is out of this world. I mean 2 goals away and 3 at home, that’s a bonus for as supporters, we enjoy watching goals beings scored. I’m very much excited about it’.
When we asked her about their performance in the PSL, she said, ‘I think so far we are really doing well, we are not doing that bad in the PSL, though we are not taking the league this season, the league is already gone but a very good performance by the boys. It’d be nice if they could transfer the style of play into the PSL, I mean we saw even in the last game against Supersport United, they were so hungry for victory that they are starting to make scoring goals a habit, they really did well, we are on. We are taking this excitement to the last 2 games of the league, come next season, we are gonna start it with a bang. This is an all new Orlando Pirates team, I’m looking forward to the new 2015/2016 Season. We are going to crack a whip’. Manox is a die-hard buccaneer who supports her team through thick and thin.
