Cape Town - A brace from Keagan Dolly leaves Jomo Cosmos still winless in the Absa Premiership after losing 2-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns in a league match at Olen Park on Sunday afternoon.
 
It is Cosmos’ third loss in the league which leaves them with only three points from six matches thus far and second from bottom on the table.
 
‘Downs, on the other hand, registered their second successive win, and third in the league, to see them with ten points to their name from six games.
 
Sundowns controlled the early possession, but it was Cosmos who had the first shot on goal in the 12th minute, but Sipho Mngomezulu saw his stinging long range effort sail inches over the crossbar.
 
Five minutes later Brice Aka latched onto a long ball from defence, but saw his 16-yard shot well-saved by Dennis Onyango, low and to his left.
 
Ten minutes later, however, Sundowns took the lead with Dolly scoring his first of the afternoon after heading home a left-wing cross from Themba Zwane, 1-0.
 
Both teams struggled to create scoring chances in the final third thereafter and the half ended 1-0 in favour of the Brazilians.
 
Sundowns nearly doubled their lead in the 48th minute after a low left-wing cross from Katlego Mashego saw Zwane meet the ball, but he was brilliantly denied from close range by the Cosmos keeper.
 
In the 67th minute some great build-up play from Sundowns saw a left-wing cross from Dolly chested into the path of Anthony Laffor by Zwane, but the striker fired narrowly over the goal from 16-yards out.
 
The icing on the cake for Sundowns was their second goal in the 93rd minute when a quick break out saw Laffor draw the goalkeeper and unselfishly slip the ball for Dolly to tap into an empty net, 2-0.

Mamelodi Sundowns (1) 2 (Dolly 22’+ 93’)
