Motsoeneng strikes big

MASERU  Kick4Life Ladies striker Mosili Motšoeneng scored big at the club’s end of season awards last Friday as she scooped the team’s player of the season honour. The award crowned a promising campaign for the 21-year-old striker who grew into a driving force for Kick4Life during the just ended 2017 Women’s Super League season.

When accepting her award, Motšoeneng, who joined Kick4Life in 2014, acknowledged her teammates and coaches.
She thanked her teammates for their support and the club for giving her an opportunity to showcase her football talents.
“I wanted to quit (football),” Motšoeneng said in reference to the club’s disappointing mid-season dip in form. “But my teammates and coach made me decide otherwise.”

The Kick4Life’s awards were held at the club’s headquarters in Old Europa and wrapped up a season in which the team once again came close but got no cigar in the title race.

For the third season running Kick4Life finished second in the league.
This time they missed out on the championship to Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) Ladies who also eliminated Puseletso Mokhosi’s charges in the Top 4 Challenge semi-finals with a 5-1 hammering.

However, despite the disappointments, Mokhosi praised her players for giving everything they had.
“We were just unlucky,” she said. “If we finish second again next year, I will leave the team and join the development side. All the players have (the) potential to finish first in the league but (we) need to put in a lot of work,” Mokhosi added.

“I want all of us to change. Let us innovate and think beyond football in the coming season.
Other big winners on the night included Kefuoe Makau who collected the top goalscorer crown while Mating Monokoane received the most improved player of the season award.

Kick4Life football director Chris Bullock admitted disappointment at finishing second in the league especially after the team went into the campaign with high hopes. “(Our) first round (performance) was very promising but I do not know where we lost it,” he said.
“(But) I still believe in this team. I promise you I will sit with the entire management team to discuss how we can offer you the best support so that we win all the matches coming (next season).”
