Varsity Football In Numbers

The 2016 Varsity Football competition is reaching its climax, so now we look back at the season gone by and determine what the numbers say.

TUT earned the right to host the 2016 Final on Thursday, September 22, after topping the league pool and winning their semifinal and welcome UJ to the TUT Stadium for the encounter. UJ finished third on the overall log and beat the more fancied CUT in their semifinal.

Here's what the numbers say!

0 - The amount of losses TUT tasted in their seven league matches.

1 - This season is the first time two-time champions UP-Tuks have not reached the semifinal stage of the competition.

2 - Both semifinals produced just two goals in regular time and both were scored in the same match - a 1-1 draw between CUT and UJ.

3.25 - Amounts to the average number of goals scored per game of the 28 matches played in the league phase.

8 - UP-Tuks secured the biggest winning margin in Round Six when they thrashed Fort Hare 9-1.

9 - Tuks may have missed out on the semifinal but they left a lasting impression on the competition by scoring nine goals in a single match - a 9-1 victory over Fort Hare.

13 - The 2016 competition produced an average of 13 goals per round.

14 - The number of times teams were able to keep clean sheets.

23 - A single round of fixtures - Round Six - produced 23 goals in total.

91 - From the 28 league phase matches, a whopping 91 goals were scored by all the participating teams.
