Arrows edge Celtic, Bucs held in MDC



A total of 11 goals were scored in the five Multichoice Diski fixtures played out on Saturday - with Golden Arrows being the pick of the bunch to further their title credentials.

In the top of the table encounter between Arrows and Bloemfontein Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium - the visitors stunned last season's runners-up.

Siwelele have made their intentions known of their title aspirations this season with dominating displays but they were pegged back as early as the 12 minute when forward Siphamandla Sabelo found the back of the net.

Two more goals from Siboniso Conco and Thabiso Mgwaba early in the second half put Arrows in the driving seat with a three-goal cushion but the home side rallied back late on.

First Teboho Modise pulled one back in the 72nd minute. Then four minutes later last season's top scorer Tshegofatso Mabasa made it 3-2 to set up a tense finale.

Nonetheless, the boys from KZN managed to hold onto the three points to move six points clear of second-placed Siwelele at the summit of the MDC table.

The double-header at the Tsakane Stadium was filled with goals as Ajax Cape Town and Polokwane played out to a 1-1 draw, while Cape Town City and Orlando Pirates shared with spoils with a 2-2 draw.

In the other two fixtures of the day, Maritzburg United and Baroka played out to a 0-0 draw at the Harry Gwala Stadium while Platinum Stars and Free State Stars played out to the same scoreline at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

The result for the Team of Choice saw them move level on points with second-placed Celtic.
