Durban - Lamontville Golden Arrows registered their second win of the season when they defeated Chippa United 2-0 at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday night.
 
Norman Smith scored both goals to help Abafana Bes'thende move up to 11th place on the Absa Premiership standings.
 
The first chance of the match fell for the hosts in the 13th minute but Daouda Kassaly was able to hold on to Nkosinathi Ogle’s shot which was not struck with full pace.
 
Two minutes later Petrus Ngebo managed to get behind the Arrows defence on the left, but his finishing left him down as he volleyed his shot over the crossbar.
 
Justine Zulu was the next man to hit the target in the 27th minute after pushing forward from the middle of the park, but his shot went straight into the goalkeeper’s gloves.
 
Three minutes later, Zulu released Ogle on the right, who then shifted inside before firing a low shot at goal, but his low strike also produced a comfortable save from the Niger international.
 
The opening goal arrived in the 33rd minute as Smith showed composure inside the box before firing his shot into the roof of the net.
 
Chippa came close to finding the equaliser two minutes when Diego Brown delivered an inswinging freekick towards Ngebo, but his header was deflected wide.
 
Arrows continued to be the better side in the second half and came close to doubling the lead in the 48th minute, but Ogle saw his freekick deflected narrowly over the bar.
 
Chippa's best chance of the match fell for Welcome Qalanto in the 50th minute as he collected a pass from Cole Alexander, but his shot was parried wide by Pavels Steinbors.
 
Arrows took advantage of that missed opportunity two minutes later when Smith tucked his low shot past Kassaly after receiving a pass from Ogle.
 
The hosts finished as the stronger side as Ogle forced a save from Kassaly in the 65th minute, while Philani Shange was also denied by the Niger international five minutes before full time.
