Varsity Stars: Semi-Final

The Varsity Football semi-finals served up two tense penalty shootouts after both games ended in stalemates after the allotted 90 minutes.

With that in mind, selecting a team proved tougher than usual, however, there were some individuals who stood out. Lloyd Morulane of TUT and UJ's Mpumelelo Sambo pulled off brilliant saves in the shootout to hand their teams the victory, however, Morulane's winning penalty kick gave him the edge.

Just two goals were scored in the 180 minutes between the games, therefore defenders and midfielders were hard to select while selecting strikers proved to be even more challenging.

Sipho Sibiya (TUT)

Wendelle Martin (NWU-Mafikeng)

Jacob Hlalele (TUT)

Managed to create some chances with the limited ball he had.

Orebotse Mongae (NWU-Mafikeng)
