Game 2: Wits snatch victory at the death against UWC

Game 3: UJ and TUT share the spoils with two late goals UJ and TUT played to one of the more exciting draws in Varsity Football history. Although the match was still goalless after 80 minutes the action was end-to-end. Both teams squandered opportunities until UJ’s Mokete Mogaila chipped the Tuks keeper from 30 metres out to score what the home supporters thought was the winning goal. But just minutes later, Tuks equalised when Chinedu Okolo headed in from close range to earn the visitors a point.

Game 4: NWU too strong for UKZN UKZN hosted NWU, as they looked to redeem themselves after losing their opening match to Wits. NWU were looking to continue their strong start. UKZN found themselves on the backfoot almost as the whistle blew. Just 15 minutes in NWU made the most of their dominance when they were awarded a penalty and Tebogo Mokgobo calmly slotted home to hand his side a 1-0 lead. Lebogang Phetlhu added to their advantage 20 minutes later. That was how the scores remained as NWU top the log after round two.
