UWC earn their first win in style
 
UWC put UL to the sword on Thursday evening after defeating their Northern rivals 7-0 in Belville.

It took only 15 minutes for UWC to stamp their authority on the game when Phiwokuhle Mphalala finished off a beautiful cross from Stefan to make the score 1-0 to the home side. The visitors were still licking their wounds after that goal when Mphalala was on hand to finish off another Stefan assist, to take make it 2-0 before the interval.
 
With a useful cushion on the scorebaord UWC ran riot and would score five more goals through Jayden Peterson (2), Phiwokuhle Mphalala (3), Lwando Ngqwemla and Xolisa Makubalo to send UL back to Limpopo with their tails between their legs.

TUT shocks NWU in Mahikeng
 
A plucky TUT side defeated NWU 1-0 in Mahikeng on Thursday to end the Noble Boys's unbeaten run.
 
The Noble Boys went into the game on top of the log after three games undefeated but struggled to deal with the attacking prowess of the men from Pretoria.
 
Silky skills were shown throughout the fixture with players from both teams showing how diski is played in South Africa, but neither could get the ball in the net.
 
The sole goal came with ten minutes till the end of the game. TUT saw a chink in NWU's armour and after a well-worked move Siphamandla Zanekile squeezed the ball being the NWU keeper.
 
Goal: Siphamandla Zanekile
 
Wits and Tuks share spoils in Jukskei Derby
 
The Jukskei Derby did not live up to its hype with Wits and Tuks settling for a 0-0 stalemate on Thursday evening in Johannesburg.
 
The game begun with some high intensity, with the possession exchanging hands, but attackers on both sides were failing to get clear chances on goal.
 
The Tuks players grew frustrated as the game went on, with the first booking of the match going against them. Neither the visitors nor the hosts could crack the opposition defence and the first half finished 0-0.
 
As the game progressed however, the hosts were the ones that enjoyed the better opportunities with their fans spurring them on. Tuks picked up two more yellow cards, with Wits keeping more discipline. In the end, however it counted for nothing, as the final whistle sounded with the teams settling for a 0-0 draw.

Wits: 0
