Fallen Ikeys Aim To Finish Strong

A crushed UCT outfit are busy picking up the pieces after experiencing yet another big defeat in Varsity Football this season.
 
The deflated Ikey Warriors suffered a 6-0 thrashing to a rampant UJ side, who have been turning heads with their exciting brand of German-style football.
 
The tournament newcomers – who now top the standings – outclassed their Cape Town counterparts in Soweto on Monday night with a sterling display of teamwork, a quality which UCT captain Gregory Bryers feels his team sorely lack.
 
“We had no cohesion between the defence and midfield and attack. Some players were giving 120 percent while others were giving 60 percent,” he groaned.
 
The disgruntled skipper says it has been a rough two weeks on the road for UCT as they have now experienced two 6-0 drubbings in ten days - the first coming against NWU in Mafikeng on August 11.
 
Bryers says the team knows they have no chance of making the semi-finals, but will focus on improving their game for the next clash against UFS-Kovsies, who they will be playing in Cape Town.
 
“We’re excited about the next game because we’ll be home and that’s always an advantage. We’ve looked at the fixtures remaining and they are definitely matches we can win, so we will give our all.
 
“Rome wasn’t built in a day and this is a young team. We will learn from these experiences and be tougher next season. We want to finish this season on a good note though, so we’ll go for the wins,” he said.
 
UCT are now bottom of the Varsity Football standings with one point from five games. There are two matches left before the semi-final stage of the tournament.
