Cane Cutters Slice Stellenbosch, Top Three Separated By Two Points

While National First Division log leaders, Stellenbosch, lost 2-1 at home to an inspired Uthongathi FC, the chasing pack of Ajax Cape Town, Royal Eagles and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) all recorded valuable victories to set the scene for an exciting climax with just three games to go.
 
Furthermore, Ubuntu Cape Town thrashed high-ranking Richards Bay 5-0, while Mbombela United also boosted their chances of participating in the play-offs by overpowering last-placed Witbank Spurs 1-0 at the Puma Rugby Stadium.
 
For the second weekend in a row, Steve Barker’s title-chasing team has hit the skids by conceding extremely late goals that ultimately could prove very costly.
 
The Cane Cutters led 1-0 at half time via Pule Mmodi before Stellebosch’s defender, Rafiq de Goede, pulled a goal back.
 
But just when it seemed that the game was going to end in a draw, the on-form Menzi Ndwandwe struck for the 6th time this season.
 
The Urban Warriors pipped Cape Umoya United 1-0 with Tashreeq Morris grabbing the vital goal in the second period, which lifted his team to within a point of rivals, Stellenbosch.
 
Eagles showed TS Galaxy, who was best in Limpopo, as the KZN outfit maintained 3rd spot, a mere two points adrift of top spot.
 
TTM, with a brace from Phumelele “Ace” Bhengu plus Xolani Khumalo’s effort, beat Maccabi FC 3-0 to move level on points with Tingwenyama.
 
Vladislav Heric’s Ubuntu not only moved out of the relegation zone but also vastly improved their goal difference after smashing the Natal Rich Boyz for five at the Athlone Stadium.
 
At half time, the Brave already had three goals in the bag and continued the rout thanks to Clint Fredericks’ brace, Waseem Isaacs’ penalty coupled with strikes from Siya Madikane and Ludovic Ndzie.
 
Ubuntu therefore leapfrogged Real Kings, who played to a goalless draw against Jomo Comos.
 
University of Pretoria grabbed three vital away points following a 2-1 victory over TS Sporting.
 
Moses Mokasi and Samuel Julies were on target for AmaTuks, while the reliable Decide Chauke smashed home goal number eleven for Abantu Bemthetho.
