A-Division to reach verdict on abandoned game

A-Division to reach verdict on abandoned game

MASERU – The A-Division Management Committee (ADMACO) is yet to reach a decision on last Saturday’s abandoned A-Division South Stream match between Roma Boys and Manonyane.
The fiercely-contested Roma derby was abandoned in the second half after Manonyane took a 3-1 lead.

As soon as the ball hit the net, an assistant referee was hit with a beer bottle thrown from the crowd which caused the match referee to call the game off because he feared for the match officials’ safety.

The bottle, it is reported, came from Roma Boys fans unhappy who were incensed after Manonyane scored the goal.
Speaking to thepost on Tuesday, ADMACO spokesperson Mothusi Letsie said the committee has to study the reports from the game’s match officials before making a decision on whether the game will be replayed or not.

“It is too early to say what is going to happen,” Letsie told thepost.
“We first have to study the reports and only then will we be able to make a decision on what is going to happen. Right now it is difficult to say anything.”
