Orlando Pirates Mean Business? They Beat LRPC Oilers Of Liberia 2-0 In An Away Encounter.

Are the Orlando Pirates Serious About Business? They won 2-0 over the LRPC Oilers of Liberia in a friendly match played on the road.

Pirates continue to go about their business quietly as they beat LRPC Oilers of Liberia.

LRPC Oilers of Liberia were defeated 2-0 by Orlando Pirates in a first leg second preliminary round match of the Caf Confederation Cup on Sunday evening at Kanyon Doe Sports Complex in Monrovia. The victory marked the continuation of Orlando Pirates' tranquil existence on the continent.

Tshegofatsho Mabasa, a Pirates star, gave the visitors the lead with a conversion just before halftime, and Fortune Makaringe put the result beyond doubt late in the game with a penalty kick that sealed the Liberians' destiny. The two goals will have served as a significant morale booster for Mabasa, who is working hard to regain his former form as the sharp player who first caught the attention of South Africa's soccer authorities many years ago.

After Mabasa's goal, the South Africans didn't look back, and Makaringe's decisive score allowed them to cling on for a crucial away victory far away from their home base in Johannesburg.

Meanwhile, Marumo Gallants were defeated 0-1 by TP Mazembe on Sunday after a deflected own goal by Lehlohonolo Nonyane earned the Congolese side a vital win in the first leg of their Caf Confederation Cup home play-off match on Sunday.

On the stroke of half-time, the Limpopo side conceded the demoralizing goal, ending their hopes of using the encounter as a significant cushion ahead of the return leg in South Africa. ​
