It’s All Or Nothing For UCT

UCT goalkeeper, Bevan Adonis, believes the Cape team need to win all their remaining matches to make the Varsity Football semi-finals.
 
The Ikey Warriors find themselves languishing right at the bottom of the standings after slumping to a 6-0 thrashing on Monday night at the hands of a rampant NWU side, who are now sitting pretty at the top of the table.
 
Adonis, who is playing in his second season of Varsity Football, fears UCT will have an even bigger mountain to climb if they don’t bag a win next week.
 
The Ikeys face giant-killers UJ, who have already overcome last year’s finalists, UP-Tuks and NMMU-Madibaz.
 
“There’s still nine points up for grabs and we have to win all three games to stand a chance. There’s no two ways about it. If we lose next week we’ll definitely be out of contention.
 
“There were games we should have won, where we should have scored more goals, but that’s in the past so it’s pointless looking at that now. We have to look ahead,” he said.
 
The goalkeeper believes he brings valuable skills and experience to the UCT backline, and hopes he will play his part in seeing the team climb the standings in the second half of the season.
 
“I believe when I’m on form the team plays better, but I won’t take anything away from the other goalkeepers, they are all good. I’m more of a senior player and the coach relies on me to encourage the younger guys. I also have experience in this tournament, so I bring some stability to the defence. I hope I can still help us do well this season,” Adonis added.
 
The stopper explained that the players will lift their moods today (Wednesday) in training and focus on how they can get the better of UJ next week.
