Muraleni United Brothers brutally walloped All Stars 5-0 in a Zamen tournament match at Zamenkomste on Sunday.

Brothers were the superior side from the onset as far as possession of the ball was concerned. This resulted in their putting a lot of pressure on the defence of Stars for the better part of the match.

Emmanuel Ravhandalala opened the score in the 15th minute. The team’s veteran striker, Mike Mulaudzi beat the keeper with a ground cutter from a set piece. Mulaudzi played well and was a thorn in the flesh of the defenders of Stars.

The keeper of Brothers, Phathutshedzo Ramalamula, made his presence felt in the 37th minute. Salani Matshisevhe of Stars tried his luck from the edge of the box with a half volley. Ramalamula palmed the ball back into the field of play.

Obua Ravhutsi scored an own goal, the opponents’ third goal, in the 40th minute. Brothers threatened to increase the margin two minutes later when Bongani Baloyi’s volley missed the target by inches. 

Brothers strengthened their defence by replacing Awodwa Loyi with Duncan Maringa in the 64th minute. Maringa scored his team's fourth in the 66th minute. Mashudu Netshaulu and Tshikhudo Mathivha of Stars and Mashango Baloyi and Khodani Machaba all received yellow cards for different infringements. Musiwa Mutandari scored his team's fifth goal after beating three defenders in a row, including the keeper.
