Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns hosted fellow PSL side Polokwane City in a training match at Chloorkop and humbled the Limpopo side 6-3.

According to the club’s official website, the match was broken up into four quarters of 30 minutes each in order to give a run to as many players as possible.

The visitors scored first and almost made it 2-0 five minutes later, after a misguided pass to Denis Onyango but the Ugandan shot stopper made a point blank save to keep Sundowns in the game.

Some beautiful inter-passing between Themba Zwane and Asavela Mbekile found Abdul Fiston who made no mistake in bringing Sundowns level.

The first quarter ended 1-1 but again City were ahead as early as the 35th minute with a wonderful strike inside the box.

In the 40th minute Malajila made it 2-2, after a good pass from Khama Billiat who was illustrious for ‘Downs.

Two minutes later, a powerful run from Mbekile resulted in an equally powerful cross that found Billiat’s head to make it 3-2 to Sundowns.

Billiat completed his brace two minutes later and gave Sundowns the 4-2 lead with a sweet curler from outside the area.

Malajila was stretchered off after an awkward landing and was replaced by Anthony Laffor. Going into the third quarter, Sundowns were still leading 4-2.

City made it 4-3 towards the end of the third quarter but Leonardo Castro restored Sundowns’ 2 goal lead.

Khaya Shozi completed the 6-3 drubbing of Rise and Shine with an easy tap in after being put through by Percy Tau.
