Highlands Go Five Points Clear, Sekome & Musonda Net Hat-Tricks

National First Division Wrap

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 07, 2018 06:00 PM
The second round of the National First Division got off to a flying start with Mbombela United and Black Leopards each netting four goals during impressive wins over Royal Eagles and University of Pretoria respectively, while log-leaders, Highlands Park hammered Super Eagles 3-0.
 
In addition, there were also wins for Real Kings, who upset second-placed Jomo Cosmos 1-0, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC, Richards Bay and Ubuntu Cape Town.
 
Thanks to a hat-trick from Phetolo Sekome, Mbombela moved to within a point of Ezenkosi following their thrilling 4-3 success at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
 
It was a similar three-goal haul for Lidoda Duvha’s Mwape Musonda during his side’s 4-0 hammering of AmaTuks.
 
The Lions of the North opened up a 5-point lead with successful efforts from Chris Katjiukua and Moeketsi Sekola (2).
 
Kings are up to third place after Sello Motsepa’s late winner, having earlier missed a penalty.
 
Tshakhuma leapfrogged Stellenbosch following their 2-0 victory over Steve Barker’s side in Parow, where Themba Ndlovu (penalty) and Alton Kapinga did the damage.
 
Richards Bay grabbed a good 2-1 away win over KZN rivals, Uthongathi FC, with goals from Menzi Hlophe and Sphelele Mkhulise.
 
A point for Duncan Lechesa’s Mthatha Bucks during a 2-2 draw with Cape Town All Stars wasn’t sufficient for his team to move out of the danger zone.
 
Igugu Lekapa’s Lucky Setelele netted a brace.
 
Ubuntu Cape Town defeated a 10-man Witbank Spurs 2-1 in the Mother City, thanks to a deserved brace from Ranga Chivaviro.

I think the management of Highlands Park have learnt a lesson by now. Once you get promotion do not get exited and get a new coach. Get quality players not the tried and tested.

Jomo Cosmos wasted a couple of chances that should have been buried. Real Kings got their lucky goal through the set piece and that is their strength. Their game is planned around set pieces and jujuman. Our Sibeko was brilliant on the day. This weekend "Pelembe" must dazzle. Maziya will be fresh and I feel sorry for this Cape Town team.
