UWC Skipper On A Goal Hunt

UWC captain, Curtley Beukes, aims to lead from the front by scoring more goals to help his side finish with a flourish in Varsity Football this season.
 
The skipper has been performing consistently for the Cape students, helping them climb the standings with two goals during this campaign after scoring against UFS-Kovsies and then again in their 1-1 draw to UL earlier this week.
 
UWC are fifth in the standings with five points from five matches and have a slight chance to make it into the semi-finals, granted they win their remaining two fixtures and the current top four somehow slip.
 
Beukes is confident the boys from ‘Bush Campus’ can pull off an upset when they host title holders UP-Tuks in Bellville next week. The striker believes he can find the net again to boost his team’s chances.
 
“I’m feeling great about my performance so far. I’ve been scoring goals both in this tournament and for the team in the USSA qualifiers, so I’m amped to score more.
 
“I have to work on my fitness and lose some weight, but I have been lucky to finish the chances I get, so I hope I can inspire the other guys to play better and come together as a team for our last two matches.
 
“It’s football, so you never know what can happen. If we win our last two games and score lots of goals, who knows hey?” he said.
 
Beukes also echoed coach, Boebie Williams’, sentiments earlier this week when he lambasted players for wanting to take the limelight and not playing as a team.
 
“There are a few players who want to do too much, but I guess it’s because they want to impress on this stage and get noticed on TV or by PSL coaches.
 
“We will sort all that out though and hopefully next week we will be playing as a team,” he added.
 
UWC host UP-Tuks next week before taking on UCT at the Green Mile in a mouth-watering Cape derby on Monday, September 1.
