Varsity Football

TUT Setting Record Straight

TUT captain and defender Elliot Seema said qualifying for the final of this year's Varsity Football tournament was a huge weight off the team's shoulders.
 
Seema was part of the TUT team that lost to NMMU in the semis in the inaugural competition back in 2013 and he feels that they are continuing to set the record straight after their 4-1 win on penalties against UP-Tuks on Thursday.
 
"This was a long time coming," said Seema. "We are very happy that we won the semifinal, but now we will turn our focus on the final."
 
TUT went into the Tshwane derby with a clear game plan to try and unsettle the defending champions, but it did not pan out the way they wanted it to.
 
"The plan was to score two quick goals before the second half, however that did not happen.
 
"In the second half Tuks dominated the game and they had plenty of chances, which meant we had to defend a lot," Seema added.
 
Seema was also full of praise for his goalkeeper King Ndlovu who turned out to be the hero for TUT. 
 
Ndlovu kept his team in the game with some fantastic saves during the 90 minutes, but also scored and saved two penalties during the penalty shoot-out.
 
"He was fantastic for us yesterday (Thursday). He was focussed and he kept that focus throughout the game. 
 
"We were afraid when the time came to take penalties, but we just had to step up and do it.
 
"We did focus on penalties during our training as well and in the end it paid off," he said.
 
While TUT head coach Bushy Moloi is confident his team will beat UWC in Cape Town for the Varsity 
 
Football title, Seema says they will not be taking the Cape side lightly.
 
"They are the top team in the competition this year and we are happy that we are playing them.
 
"We believe we that we can win,  but we are not taking them for granted," said Seema.
