UWC Back In The Hunt

UWC kept their title hopes alive after coming back to secure a late 2-1 victory over title holders UP-Tuks in a stormy Cape Town on Monday night.
 
The match was barely underway when UWC goalkeeper Reon October was caught unaware by a shot from UP-Tuks captain Lawrence Ntswane.
 
October parried the ball away, but the home side’s defence failed to clear their lines and Jeremiah Nkwana was quick to react, burying the ball into the net for the visitors to take an early lead.
 
With ten minutes gone the home team pushed to equalise and Ntswane was first to be booked after a dangerous tackle to prevent a UWC attack.
 
The hosts kept attacking for much of the first half with Wade Crowie dominating in midfield, but UP-Tuks’ defence stood firm and UWC failed to penetrate.
 
As the half progressed, UWC kept pushing for the equaliser and Lindsay Stowman was next to get cautioned with a yellow card after bringing down Curtley Beukes just outside the area.
 
The title holders used their championship pedigree to good effect in defence though, holding off their opponents’ attacks and going into the break holding onto their 0-1 lead.
 
UWC went into the second half in the same attacking mood and eventually found the equaliser through Tapelo Sixishe, who headed in from a swerving corner. The gale force wind playing its part to help the hosts get that goal.
 
The Cape students kept going at the title holders and came close to going ahead with two attempts on goal going narrowly wide.
 
The hosts kept their best for last though, producing a stunning win with Reza Zain Dramat scoring a thunderous volley from another corner.
 
The home team edge the title holders 2-1 in stormy Cape Town.
