Tuks Scalp Lifts UWC Spirits

UWC are basking in the glory of their first home win in Varsity Football this season after a victory against UP-Tuks reignited their chances of reaching the semi-finals.
 
The Cape students have a slim chance getting into the final four after producing a spirited comeback to overcome last year’s champions with a 2-1 win in Cape Town on Monday night. 
 
After being slated by coach, Boebie Williams, for not working together as a team last week, UWC  churned out a positive performance which has given the players motivation to finish strongly this season.
 
Assistant coach, Salie Adams, says the win over Tukkies has boosted morale, especially since it is their first win on home soil.
 
“We’ve been working on our problems, which included addressing the fear of losing at home again and the results are showing,” he said.
 
Adams says UWC started their previous home games with vigour, but after scoring first they often lost momentum which has proven costly in their hunt for success this term.
 
The coach heaped praise on the UWC players, saying they have been putting in the effort during training and it was evident when they outclassed the title holders during the second half on Monday night.
 
“We used the conditions to our advantage with the bumpy pitch and the wind and rain. The players have been very committed and the spirit is good. Everyone has put lots of effort in,” he added.
 
UWC take on neighbours UCT in a must-win derby final round Varsity Football match next week after the two sides lock horns in a USSA match on Wednesday, August 27.
