Free State Stars scored two comical own goals as they fell to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday night.

Both Robert Sankara and Liberty Chakoroma put into their own net at the FNB Stadium, while George Lebese and Siphiwe Tshabalala each scored fantastic goals to see the Amakhosi to a comfortable victory – their first in the league this season.

Chiefs dominated the early stages, but it was Stars who created the first clear opening, with a counter attack allowing former Amakhosi striker Sthembiso Ngcobo to turn his marker and get clear on goal in the 20th minute, but he was denied by a brilliant save from Itumeleng Khune.

The Soweto giants continued to boss the game but seemed destined to be frustrated through the first half. However, on 35 minutes they were gifted the opening goal when Siboniso Gaxa’s cutback from the by-line was turned into his own net by defender Robert Sankara.

Eight minutes later it was 2-0, with Siphiwe Tshabalala providing an inch-perfect pass for George Lebese to get ahead of his marker inside the penalty area and direct the ball beyond the right-hand of goalkeeper Johnny Mathole.

And things went from bad to worse for Stars on the stroke of half time when they conceded another own goal – this time it was debutant Zimbabwean defender Liberty Chakoroma who turned the ball into his own net, leaving the hosts 3-0 up at the break.

Ea Lla Koto almost pulled a goal back in the opening stages of the second half, with Lucky Mohomi’s free kick passing untouched through the penalty area before rebounding off the upright.

Chiefs extended their lead midway through the second half when Siphiwe Tshabalala scored a beauty, volleying home from long range after he had spotted Mathole off his line to make it 4-0 and put the game to bed.

The win takes Steve Komphela’s team to the top of the log on goal difference ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns, Black Aces and SuperSport United.
