Galaxy Thrash Maritzburg For Da Gama's First Win

DStv Premiership

Result: Maritzburg United 0-3 TS Galaxy

Date: 20 January 2021

Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium

Owen Da Gama got his first win charge of TS Galaxy, who registered a 3-0 victory over Maritzburg United in the DStv Premiership on Wednesday evening.

Maritzburg made only one change, as Tebogo Tlolane was recalled at the expense of Daylon Claasen while the Rockets made two alterations, with shot-stopper Marlon Heugh returning alongside a rare start for David Matlala.

After a quiet opening to the half, Wayde Lekay broke the deadlock for Owen Da Gama's troops just before the half-hour mark with a strike at the near post after a through ball by Lindokuhle Mbatha.

United goalkeeper Jethren Barr kept his side in the game just before the break as he made a great save to deny Mxolisi Macuphu a golden opportunity as the Rockets went to the break with a slender lead.

The visitors had a dream start in the second stanza as Mbatha doubled their lead four minutes from the break with a strike from close range after he was teed up by Macuphu.

Judas Moseamedi came close to pulling a goal back for the Team of Choice in the 62nd minute with a rocket that was saved by Heugh.

Felix Badenhorst put the game to bed for Da Gama's men in the last seven minutes from a direct free-kick as Galaxy moved up to 12th spot.
