SOCCER - Defending champions Young Buffaloes have advanced to the last 16 in the Eswatini Bank Cup after beating National First Division side Tinyosi 2-0 last night at Somhlolo National Stadium.

The Lobamba based outfit matched their opponents pound for pound in the early stages of the match until in the 19 minute when Young Buffaloes scored their first goal through Lindo Mkhonta.

This was after he connected a long throw ball from Fanelo 'Order' Mamba.

The army side scored their second goal before the break via striker Phiwa Dlamini, who headed home Wandile Maseko’s free kick.

The three times champions Buffaloes enjoyed a healthy 2-0 lead at halftime.

The second half saw Young Buffaloes pushing more numbers upfront in search for another goal. However, poor finishing let them down.

‘Amathole Ezinyathi’ protected their 2-0 lead until in the 90 minute when the referee blew the final whistle.


Meanwhile, the first match that was also played at the same venue saw Tambuti book a place in the next round with a 5-2 win on penalties over the stubborn Seven Dreams.
