Spurs Hold Stellenbosch, Eagles Grab Second Spot

National First Division front runners, Stellenbosch FC, dropped two vital points at home following a 1-1 draw with relegation threatened Witbank Spurs, Richards Bay and Royal Eagles recorded valuable 1-0 victories over Mbombela United and Real Kings respectively.
 
In addition, there were wins for Ajax Cape Town, Ubuntu Cape Town and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC (TTM), while lowly Cape Umoya United and Jomo Cosmos played to a 1-1 draw.
 
Stellenbosch began on a high note within the opening ten minutes when their top scorer, Iqraam Rayners, brought his total to fourteen.
 
But just before half time, Siyavutha levelled through Khethokuthula Zwane’s neat penalty.
 
Eagles, with a goal from their captain, Philani Cele, put another nail into Kings’ coffin and further pressure on head coach, Simo Dladla.
 
This result helped Sbu Mpisane’s club to leapfrog Tingwenyama.
 
The Urban Warriors, who led 3-0 at the break through efforts from Masilake Phohlongo, Kegan Johannes and what looked like an own goal, are back in the top three after whipping TS Galaxy 3-1.
 
The Rockets even missed a penalty before Lerato Lepasa netted a consolation goal.
 
On Friday, Ubuntu moved out of the drop zone after recording a 2-1 win over Maccabi FC at the Athlone Stadium.
 
Thanks to Waseem Isaacs’ brace, which included an injury-time winner, Vladislav Heric’s outfit are a point behind Maccabi, for whom the veteran Collins Mbesuma netted.
 
In fact, a day later there was also late drama at the same venue when Ezenkosi grabbed their equalizer to deny the Spirited Ones a win.
 
Earlier, Gavin Hammers had netted for Dominic Isaacs’ team in this “six pointer.”
 
In Thohoyandou, TTM’s reliable striker, Edward Manqele, bagged the only goal of the game following a defensive error from University of Pretoria.
 
The KZN derby
 
The match between TS Sporting and Uthongathi FC, which was moved from Kwabokweni to the Mbombela Stadium, ended goalless.
