Stellenbosch Go Top, All Stars & Highlands Lose

National First Division Wrap

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 17, 2017 05:24 PM
There were shocks in the National First Division as highflyers, Cape Town All Stars and Highlands Park, both succumbed to losses at the hands of lowly Mbombela United and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) respectively, while Stellenbosch are top after overpowering Black Leopards 2-1.
 
In addition, there were wins for Super Eagles, University of Pretoria and Jomo Cosmos.
 
Igugu Lekapa lost their unbeaten record after Mbombela recorded a 3-1 away win thanks to Tshepo Liphoko’s brace and a Siphesihle Zwane penalty. In fact, one of Liphoko’s goals was also a spot kick.
 
Steve Barker’s Stellenbosch grabbed their 8th point at Athlone, where a Keoikantse Mosiatlhaga penalty plus an own goal downed Lidoda Duvha.
 
While the Lions of the North suffered a second successive 2-1 defeat, for TTM it was another big win on the trot after beating Jomo Cosmos. Therefore all credit must go to Sello Chokoe’s charges for whom Teboho Kalake and Mpambaniso Monde were on target.
 
In a re-run of the ABC Motsepe League Play-Off Final, Super Eagles got their revenge over Uthongathi by a 2-0 score line to move off the bottom of the log.
 
Goals from Lepele Senokoane and Modibedi Mokoena have given head coach, Tshegofatso Mashego a huge boost.
 
But the same cannot be said for Royal Eagles’ Allan Freese, whose team is without a win after two late goals from AmaTuks’ substitute Ian Chikohwa.
 
Earlier, the big-spending KZN outfit had gone ahead via a Chris Komane penalty but Tuks showed courage with this 2-1 win.
 
Ezenkosi beat Richards Bay 1-0 with a very early Sicelo Mkhize strike which means two KZN sides are in the drop zone.
 
Ubuntu Cape Town are another side still to pick up a 3-point haul after a 1-1 draw against Real Kings at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
 
Ubuntu opened the scoring with a fine Ranga Chivaviro finish before Phumelele “Ace” Bhengu equalised for Kings.
 
Mthatha Bucks and Witbank Spurs also played out a similar draw with both goals coming just prior to the final whistle.
 
First, Mpo Erasmus hit his fourth for Ian Palmer’s side then a minute later, Siyavutha were back level thanks to Mxolisi Khoza.

A win is a win for the big Jomo Cosmos. 3 points in the bag. Ubuntu will be stubborn as they have not yet picked up a win. They will be very confident and seeking their first 3 points haul.
