UJ Take Top Spot, While UKZN Claim First Point

UJ are now first on the Varsity Football log after defeating TUT while UKZN have their first-ever Varsity Football point after drawing to UWC.
 
UKZN holds UWC for first points
 
University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) came from 2-0 down to pick up their first ever Varsity Football point drawing 3-3 with University of Western Cape (UWC)at the Howard College Stadium on Thursday evening.
 
The match was dampened by the torrential downfall with UKZN showing great character.
 
UWC scored in the opening seconds as Xolisa Makubalo finished coolly to hand his side the lead. Not long after that Jaydan Peterson volleyed superbly to double his side’s lead after just 11 minutes.
 
UKZN pulled one back through Bongumenzi Zulu on the 25-minute mark to ensure his team was not out of the contest at the break. The match went in at halftime with the side from Western Cape at an advantage of 2-1.
 
UKZN came back and claimed an equalising goal courtesy of Tholinhlanhla Zondi on the hour mark. UWC scored their third goal but UKZN were resilient and equalized through Bongumenzi Zulu with 13 minutes to play.
 
Scores
UKZN: Tholinhlanhla Zondi (2), Bongumenzi Zulu
 
UWC: Xolisa Makubalo (2), Jaydan Peterson
 
Wits stun NWU
 
Wits survived an NWU fight-back to defeat the Noble Boys 2-1 at the Wits Stadium on Thursday evening.
 
The clash between the fourth places Wits and third placed NWU, was an entertaining one from the onset but it was the visitors who got the brighter start scoring the first goal to take an early lead in the match.
 
It was a different story in the second half with the home team posing a threat early and were rewarded five minutes into the half, with captain Tsiriletso Motsogi rising to the occasion and leveling matters.
 
At 1-1 the Witsies looked a more threatening team going forward and being spurred by the spectators. It took another seven minutes for the hosts to get on the scoreboard again, when midfield maestro Mahle Mtabane, showed off his silky skills to push the into the net from close range.
 
Scorers
 
Wits: Tsiriletso Motsogi, Mahle Mtabane
 
NWU: Mogomotsi Molefe
 
Mogaila propels UJ to top spot
 
UJ squeezed past TUT after defeating the Pretoria side 1-0 in Soweto on Thursday evening after another sensational performance from Mokete Mogaila.
 
UJ looked very organized in the first half, showing confidence on the ball and imposing themselves on the visitors.
 
The TUT team had a different approach to the type of football they usually play, aiming to catch UJ on the break.
 
The high-pressing game from UJ gave them a great opportunity, when Tebogo Mandyu put Mogaila through for the only goal of the night. From there the game became very defensive from both sides.
 
It looked as though TUT would be able to creep their way back into the match after UJ's Karl Clement was given a red card for collecting two yellows, but UJ held them out to secure the 1-0 win.
 
Scores:
 
UJ: 1 (Mokete Mogaila)
 
TUT: 0
 
UP-Tuks too strong for UL
 
The University of Pretoria struck twice against the University of Limpopo to register a 2-0 win in Round 5 of Varsity Football at the Tuks Stadium in Pretoria on Thursday evening.
 
UP-Tuks may have been in control for the majority of the match but they were made to wait for their first goal as Sabelo Tsambo nailed in a fine effort to give the defending champions the lead in the 35th minute.
 
The second half was almost a mirror image of the first as UP-Tuks continued their rampant form while thwarting the men from Limpopo's advances whenever the visitors gained possession.
 
Jeremiah Nkwana ensured that the contest was over in the 87th minute as he sunk a penalty goal to make it 2-0 and three log points.
 
Scorers:
 
UP-Tuks: Sabelo Tsambo, Jeremiah Nkwana
