UWC Out To Break Record
UWC have taken the 2015 Varsity Football tournament by the scruff of the neck and have a chance to secure the most points of the round-robin phase since the tournament's inception.
Victory over NMMU-Madibaz will not only see them remain the only unbeaten side but would also see them bag 19 points - the most points by any team before the play-offs.
The previous highest was back in 2013 when TUT managed to bag 17 points from their mini-league matches.
The Cape side have never made the play-offs before and have not only achieved this feat this year but have done so with a game to spare. This could open up a chance for experimentation with different combinations before the play-offs, or simply an opportunity for fringe players to have a taste of the action.
The trip up the coast will be seen by many as an easy victory for UWC as the home side are yet to register a win in their campaign. The Bellville-students can also take confidence in the fact that they have found the back of the net in five of their six matches while their opponents have only done so in one match.
UWC boasts the best defensive record of the competition, having conceded just three goals in their campaign while the Madibaz have let in eight goals.
The teams finds themselves on opposite ends of the table, with UWC leading the way and the Madibaz languishing in last place, so the Cape side should walk away comfortable victors.
Anything can happen on the night though, especially away from home, but UWC will surely want to prove their season has been no fluke and maintain their unbeaten streak heading into the next phase of the competition.
