UL Coach Plots Way To Semis

UL coach, Burney Mampshika, can still see his side making the Varsity Football semi-finals after their 1-1 draw to UWC in Cape Town on Monday night.
 
The visitors showed good form throughout the match and Mampshika feels they were unlucky not to walk away with three points.
 
UL still have the slightest of chances to make the last four despite finding themselves second from bottom of the standings with two points from five games. There are only two matches left before the semi-finals, but Mampshika is not giving up.
 
“We should have won 5-1 last night and the team is improving with every game. We were unlucky and we are not done yet. If we win our next two matches and the other teams slip, we can still make the semis,” he said.
 
Goalkeeper Reon October produced yet another sterling performance for UWC in between the posts, keeping the visitors at bay for much of the game after striker Curtley Beukes put the home side ahead early in the first-half.
 
Mampshika heaped praise on October, who was eventually beaten midway through the second-half after Theo Phophi headed in from a corner.
 
“Our strikers should have scored more, but their goalkeeper is the best I’ve seen in the tournament.  He really kept them in the game,” he explained. 
 
The optimistic coach says the team will work hard on their finishing this week while maintaining a positive mindset as they prepare to take on NMMU-Madibaz in Port Elizabeth next Monday.
