Marvelous Moodie Makes Massive Statement

To keep a cleansheet takes a monumental effort when you are under constant threat from the opposition but that effort gets enhanced after conceded four goals in your previous game.
 
That was the feat achieved by Kovsies goalkeeper, Serasengoe Moodie, in their sixth round match against UCT in a cold and windy Cape Town.
 
Not only did he keep a cleansheet but the goalkeeper also pulled three on-on-one saves to go with a heroic save from a UCT freekick which saw him picking up the Man of the Match award.
 
The 2-0 win for the Bloemfontein students was only their second cleansheet in the competition but the shot-stopper believes it's not about cleansheets, as that tends to distort what really happens in a game.
 
"Keeping cleansheets is good but sometimes your best games come when you concede goals. It's not always that you can stop every shot that comes your way but when everything clicks on the night, it's a good feeling," he said.
 
The former Bloem Celtic Colts player said his improved performance was a matter of a change in mindset as he felt he was too complacent in their 4-0 loss to the Madibaz.
 
"I knew it was a must win game for us (against UCT) and I told myself that I need to keep a cleansheet to help with our goal difference which will keep us in the running for a semifinal spot," he added.
 
The second year Political Science and Psychology student was happy with his team's performance against UCT, in weather conditions which favoured the hosts, especially the improved defensive effort.
 
Moodie said they will approach their final match against NWU-Mafikeng with the same attitude as they did against the Cape side as they look to settle a score against their North West opponents.
 
Kovsies suffered a 6-1 defeat to the Mafikeng students in last year's tournament but the goaltender is adamant this year will be different.
 
"We have a score to settle against NWU. They beat us last year but we are a better team this year. We are at home, so we will be doing it for our fans who have been loyal to us throughout the tournament," he stated.
