Competition: Nedbank Cup

Venue: Princess Magogo Stadium
Abafana Bes’thende advance to the next round of the Nedbank Cup competition after a 3-1 win over Maritzburg United in the Last 32 round this afternoon at Princess Magogo Stadium.
Both teams had a chance to dominate a half of play in today’s encounter. We took the game by the horns in the first half and managed to stamp our authority on the field, starting with a well placed header from Sibeko in the 22nd minute. Our second goal came from Lamola who received the ball in the box, turned and shot, beating Vries, off a free kick from Sibiya.
Mahachi then got a well deserved goal in the 38th minute as he played the ball up the far side, cut infield and unleashed a shot from the left, again beating Vries and finding the back of the net for our third of the day.
Maritzburg United were not going to take this lightly and returned after the break showing determination to pull something back. This saw them dominate play in the second 45, only allowing us to play back into their last 3rd on counter moves. They never allowed us a lot of space to build from the back much. This paid off for them in the 66th minute when Mekoa managed to get one past a very on form Gumede.
A well fought game from the side today, with solid performances from the senior players and great work from the juniors in the side again.
The draw for the Last 16 will take place on Thursday night.
