UL’s Blondy Looks To Better Days
UL midfielder, Blondy Mohale, believes a lack of experience has cost his team success in this year’s Varsity Football tournament.
The Limpopo students have struggled to shine this season and find themselves second from bottom with just two points from five games.
With two matches left before the semi-finals, UL have come to terms with the fact that they won’t be making the top four this term.
A disappointing 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers UWC on Monday left a sour taste in the UL players’ mouths, but Mohale, who churned out a workhorse-like performance in midfield to earn the Man of the Match award, feels the team still has lots of potential for growth.
“We are still quite new to this competition and many of our players are experiencing this tournament for the first time. A lot of the other teams have experienced guys and some even play in the PSL.
“We will learn from this performance and come back stronger than ever next season,” he said.
Mohale sees himself as a key player for UL in central midfield and he is keen to continue playing a role next season when he feels the team will contend for the Varsity Football title.
“I see us doing much better next season. Our players will be experienced and we will be tough to beat. Maybe we will even win it,” he said.
Next week UL travel to Port Elizabeth, where they take on NMMU-Madibaz as the tournament reaches its final stages.
