Missed Chances Bites Warriors

UCT Warriors were left deflated after they suffered their fifth loss of the tournament at the hands of Kovsies but only had themselves to blame for their inability to convert.
 
The Cape side dominated possession for the majority of the game and created nearly twice as many chances as their Bloem opponents but a combination of lackluster finishing and a brilliant display of goalkeeping by Moodie left the Warriors frustrated.
 
UCT went all out to register their first win of the campaign and were the first to score in the second half, unfortunately, it was in the their own net.
 
Despite being a goal down, UCT kept pushing to get an equaliser but came up against a determined Moodie.
 
"He (Moodie) had a brilliant game and unfortunately it was against us. He pretty much threw everything we had at him but he stood firm and we couldn't get the ball into his net," UCT captain Greg Bryer said.
 
The Green Mile has brought the best out of the Warriors players with all their home games being tense battles which Bryer felt could have gone either way.
 
"We just couldn't take our chances against Kovsies. If you look at our other results at home, we were in it at all times but we just couldn't convert our chances and that cost us points in all the games," he said.
 
Bryer was adamant his charges have come on leaps and bounds since the inception of Varsity Football and believes they will continue to improve as this season is just a stepping stone for them.
 
"We approached this tournament with the intention of improving every aspect of our game. Looking at the log, it would seem like we haven't been competitive but I think there has been massive improvement," he added.
 
There is nothing but pride left for UCT as they host UWC in the Cape derby in the final round of the competition. UWC have a chance to get a semifinal spot but Bryer said his team is determined not to let that happen.
 
"It's a massive game and a big rivalry. We don't want them to get into the semifinals," he stated.
