Galaxy were also the dominating team in the first opening 10 minutes and posed a few threats to the Chiefs defense.

Chiefs launched their first move of the match in the tenth minute which nearly resulted in a goal. Striker Ranga Chivaviro was unlucky when his header went over the bar after a beautiful cross by Reeve Frosler.

Chiefs were dealt after striker Ranga Chivaviro was taken off with a hamstring injury as early as the 27th minute. He was replaced by Christian Saile.

Galaxy’s new signing Mpho Mvelase was having a great game on the right-hand side with some quality crosses. Unfortunately, there was no one to connect with from the Galaxy side.

Mlungisi Mbanjana was the first to go to the referees’ book after a foul in Potsane.

Saile came close for Chiefs five minutes from the break but his shot narrowly missed the target with only the keeper to beat.

Galaxy had their own attack but Sebelebele’s shot didn’t have much power to threaten Petersen. Galaxy’s shout for a handball in the 18-area box fell on deaf ears as the referee waved play on. The match went to the halftime break at 0-0.

GOAL. 1-0

But Galaxy came into the second half a more rejuvenated side and were quickly rewarded with a goal. A shot by new signing Higor Vidal’s shot came off keeper Peterson and resulted in an own goal for Galaxy.

Amakhosi attempted for a quick equaliser but his shot was saved by Galaxy Keeper.
