Wits Players Who Blitzed

Wits returned to Varsity Football with a bang when they reached their first ever semi-final after missing out on the 2014 edition.
 
They finished in a low seventh place back in 2013, after picking up a solitary victory and finding the back of the net on two occasions. Their defence was not good either as they leaked 17 goals in their seven matches.
 
However that all changed in 2015 when, under the guidance of Karabo Mogudi, they bagged four victories and a draw to finish in the final play-off spot with 13 points. 
 
Key to their success has been their team orientated ethos but you need individuals to contribute and we identified four players who did just that.
 
Hope Munyai
 
An absolute rock in defence. His match awareness and positioning skills saw him break down numerous attacks to help keep a brilliant defensive record. Throw in his natural leadership ability and you have a player who can adjust to any situation while taking control of the matter at hand.
 
Aleksandar Kocic
 
The Serbian-born defensive midfielder has a take no prisoners attitude and was one of the cleanest tacklers in the tournament. It was very rare to see him go lightly into the tackle situation and always emerged with the ball. His tactical awareness and technical brilliance made him one of the standout players in his position.
 
Wonderboy Frank
 
He lived up to his name in each game and produced goals that was truly wonderful. Formed a formidable partnership with Gift Baloyi but showed maturity beyond his years when he was partnered with other players and immediately clicked with them.
 
Gift Baloyi
 
The clinical finisher terrorised defences with speed and genius running lines. He somewhat went unnoticed for the first few matches but then made a name for himself by clinching numerous match-winning goals, sometimes coming off the bench to provide real impact and be the game changer.
 
Wits will certainly be around for many more tournaments if they continue their improvement and we will definitely see them in a final in the very near future. While their link with PSL outfit Bidvest Wits, is not quite as established as UP-Tuks, some of their players, including the ones mentioned above, should be making the giant leap in the next few years.
