DURBAN – Lamontville Golden Arrows reign were crowned KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Premier's Cup champions on Sunday after defeating Real Kings at King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi.
Abafana Bes'thende dispatched the National First Division outfit 2-0 in the final in Umlazi to win the trophy for the second time, with their first and last triumph coming in 2011.
There were more positives than negatives for Steve Komphela and his troops as they scored five goals while keeping two clean sheets in their two matches in the competitions.
Arrows started the game on the front foot as they dominated the early exchanges. They were penetrating through the wings, using their full-backs to overload the spaces in wide areas.
Romario Dlamini delivered a quality cross in the first five minutes from the right-hand side, but Richard Matloga failed to connect with his head. Malcolm Jacobs between the sticks for Real Kings was able to make a comfortable save from the cross.
