Sundowns remain unbeaten after holding off Royal AM

Johannesburg – Mamelodi Sundowns maintained their undefeated streak as they secured a clinical victory against Shauwn Mkhize’s Royal AM at Loftus Versfeld.

The unstoppable Brazilians’ goal smasher Peter Shalulile extended his goals of the season as he smashed a brace for Masandawana on Wednesday, and this levelled up his total tally of goals scored this season to 11 goals.

Opening the match on a good slate, Masandawana’s Thabiso Kutumela scored an opener in the sixth minute of the match, to give the Brazilians a lead in the match.

With nine minutes left to the final whistle, Thwihli Thwahla’s Victor Letsoalo cracked a stunning goal, to make it 3-1 to Sundowns.

With guns blazing, the royal side was awarded a penalty opportunity, in which the top goal scorer contestant, Letsoalo, found a back of the net in the 90th minutes of the match.

However, time was not on Royal AM’s side as the game ended 3-2.
