Varsity Football Roundup

The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) will face the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU), while University of Pretoria (UP-Tuks) takes on North-West University (NWU) in the semi-finals of the inaugural Varsity Football challenge.

The final positions of the log standings were confirmed on Monday, in the final round of the group stages. TUT finished top of the log, followed by UP-Tuks in second, NWU in third and NMMU in fourth.

TUT finished off their league campaign with a 3-0 win over Wits, ending the standings with 17 points and no losses in the seven rounds of fixtures. Botshelo Mfulwane opened the scoring, with Selby Madibana and Andrew Mashigo adding to the scoreline.

UP-Tuks, who finished the log in second place with 16 points, edged NWU by a single goal in their final game on Monday, winning 1-0 courtesy of a late goal from Lawrence Ntswane.

University of the Western Cape (UWC) ended their run with a 1-1 draw against the University of Cape Town (UCT), in the Cape derby. Velaphi Vilakazi’s opener for UCT was cancelled out by Tapelo Sixishe’s free kick, as the teams shared the spoils in Bellville.

NMMU ended the log standings in fourth place and on 13 points, following their 1-1 draw on Monday. The University of the Free State (UFS) held the semi-finalists to a one-all draw in Port Elizabeth. JJ Groenwald broke the deadlock, putting UFS in front, however Lukhanyo Rasmeni restored parity.

The semi-finals will take place next Monday, with UP-Tuks taking on NWU at the University of Pretoria at 16:30 and TUT hosting NMMU at the Tshwane University of Technology, at 19:00.
