All Stars Maintain Top Spot As Four Ex-PSL Sides Fail

There were goals galore in the National First Division as former PSL outfits, Thanda Royal Zulu, Santos, Vasco da Gama and Moroka Swallows conceded thirteen times during losses, while Cape Town All Stars maintained top spot after a 2-0 away win over Black Leopards.
 
Baroka FC thrashed Thanda Royal Zulu 4-0 thanks to a brace from the league’s top marksman, Thabiso Kutumela, who now has six goals in four outings as Bakgaga grabbed second position.
 
Goals from Eagles’ Zukile Mkhize, Siphelele Zwane, Bongani Xulu and Mwambungu Uhuru gave Vladislav Heric’s outfit their most decisive win so far but his opposite number, Zeca Marques, is already under enormous pressure after becoming the first team to concede ten goals.
 
Questions are also being asked about Vasco’s defence following successful strikes from Siyavutha’s Julius Likontsane (2) and Thabo Makhele, however, all credit must go to Spurs’ veteran mentor, Themba Mafu, whose side shares the same points (7) as Eagles.
 
Swallows’ boss, Leon Prins, must be scratching his head following the Birds second 2-0 defeat, but here again Tingwenyama must be praised for their first-half fighting spirit when Sinethemba Jantjie’s brace sealed the match.
 
This result lifts Mbombela to four points, just one behind AmaZulu, who could only manage a goalless draw with African Warriors.
 
Igugu Lekapa with a goal in each half from Thapelo Mathibe and Stanley Makgoka out played Lidoda Duvha to maintain a two-point lead at the top of the log.
 
There was another shock when Highlands Park grabbed their opening victory after overpowering Milano United 2-0 at Blue Downs.
 
The visitors head coach, Allan Freese, was full of confidence that his Lions of the North would produce the goods against Eezy my Kinnes, which is exactly what happened when Muzi Thabotha and Jermaine Christian found the back of the net.
 
The relegation scrap between FC Cape Town and Mthatha Bucks ended all square at 1-1.
 
Bucks stunned the African Beasts in the opening minute when Tebogo Makungo headed home before substitute Bafana Kali levelled matters towards the end. But Bucks missed a penalty which could cost them dearly.
