Pirates in no mood for romance as they punish Botswana’s Galaxy on Valentine’s Day

It wasn’t the Valentine’s Day gift that Jwaneng Galaxy were hoping for after they were punished by visitors Orlando Pirates in a Caf Confederation Cup first leg play-off match in Botswana on Sunday afternoon.

Pirates handed their hosts a 3-0 beating in a match that moved the South African side a step closer to the group stages of the continental tournament.

A first half header from defender Thulani Hlatshwayo got the ball rolling after he powered home the opener following a corner kick from Deon Hotto in the 32rd minute.

Two goals in the second half from Linda Mntambo and Jean-Marc Mundele secured a comfortable win for the Bucs.
