Salie: A Lot Of Tears Were Shed

UWC head coach Salie Adams said their semifinal victory of Wits on Thursday brought tears to the eyes of many who are close to the university.
 
The Cape side will have a home final against TUT in two weeks’ time and it is the first time they have reached the showpiece event in Varsity Football.
 
"It is exciting for the institution and it is exciting for the players as well," said Adams.
 
"A lot of tears were shed by people close to UWC. We are in the final and our team has brought pride to the university."
 
While they might have achieved their goal of reaching the final, UWC were less than impressive against Wits with Adams criticising some of his players for being too individualistic.
 
"Some of our players like Thulani Mkosi and Tapelo Sixishe look good on the field, but they have not been effective.
 
"What they do on the field is maybe what the game needs, but it is not what the team needs. The team needs quality passes, shots at goal and good combinations with your teammates.
 
"We have seen this type of thing in both semifinals. The players for UP-Tuks and TUT looked good, but their final passes were pathetic as well," Adams added.
 
Many coaches would rather want in important knock-out game settled in normal time than the dreaded penalty shoot-out, however, Adams said it was something they prepared for.
 
"We practised penalties in the week leading up to the semifinal. It sounds negative, but it is something you have to do," he said.
 
UWC will meet TUT in the final on Thursday, September 24 at the UWC Sports Stadium in Bellville, Cape Town.
