Cosmos and Santos draw

accreditation

Due to the hot conditions both teams seemed to be holding back during the first half as there were few chances.

But in the second half it was all Cosmos and Santos were saved by their keeper Lee Langeveldt, who made two great saves to get his side a point.

Thando Mngomeni tried a few long-range shots for Santos during the first half but never troubled the Cosmos goal.

In the 63rd minute Romano Scott hammered a shot from the edge of the box that went narrowly wide nearly giving the visitors the lead.

Langeveldt made a great diving save from a Dikgang Mabalane close-range shot in the 72nd minute.

Four minutes later Langeveldt made a stunning save when he blocked a Tshepo Moloto close-range header from a cross by Mabalane.

The Cape side applied some late pressure with two Mngomeni corners, but both were comfortably dealt with by the Cosmos defence, leaving the two clubs to share the spoils.
