A fantastic team effort saw us secure a win this afternoon against SuperSport United in an action packed game from start to finish.
The first half was well executed from both sides. We used the ball well to play up into the last third while looking to score, but never took as much advantage of a brisk wind behind us. There were a number of opportunities for us to score, in particular when Mahachi was played into a promising position. Pieterse came out of the box to defend and couldnt control the ball, it deflected but Mahachi was just not able to get to it and guide it into its mark.
The teams went into the break with no score on the board and when they returned SuperSport came back dominating the first couple of minutes of play.
We did well on the par though this afternoon.The team looked composed and determined. This paid off in the 80th minute as Mahachi found the back of the net after Pieterse failed to hold onto a shot from Venter.
The game was far from over though, and SuperSport fought until the dying minutes for an equaliser. Gumede’s last 10 minutes were intense as he fielded a number of shots at goal from all angles.
A good win from the team today and a great morale booster ahead of our trip to play Chippa next weekend on the 21st.
A big thank you to our supporters who show dedication and belief in our squad.
