NWU, UJ Stay Unbeaten

NWU and UJ played out a competitive 1-1 draw in Mafikeng to both maintain their unbeaten status in Varsity Football this season.
Both goals came in the first half of a heated battle between the two form sides of the competition who are only separated on the log by goal difference.
NWU imposed their passing game on the visitors from the outset, but UJ did not allow them very much space or time on the ball as they pressed hard on defence.
The home side had the first real opportunity on goal when a long ball into the box fell for front-man Tshenolo Machwisa, but he pulled his effort wide of the mark.
UJ managed to get hold of possession and build some pressure of their own, but were forced to try and build from their own half by the organised NWU outfit.
The Johannesburg side seemed happy to sit back and soak up the pressure, and they almost opened the scoring when a long ball from captain Grant Bruchhausen fell for Ruben De Freitas in the box, but the striker's shot rattled the crossbar and flew over.
He did not have to wait long to celebrate however, as he got another opportunity soon afterwards and made the most of it by burying a volley in the bottom left corner to hand his side the lead.
NWU were all square before long, with Lindani Dudula scoring from the penalty spot after the referee took issue with a challenge from UJ goalkeeper Mduduzi Khumalo.
The game opened up somewhat in the second half as both teams looked to push forward in search of the goal that would give them the lead.
However, despite opportunities at both ends, neither team could find the finishing touch and the match ended deadlocked at 1-1.
