UP-Tuks Stun UWC To Advance To The Final

UP-Tuks Stun UWC To Advance To The Final

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 14, 2017 07:36 PM
The University of Pretoria recovered from an early goal to score three of their own as they beat the University of the Western Cape 3-1 in the first Varsity Football semi-final at the Tuks Stadium on Thursday afternoon.
UWC got off to a perfect start as defender Clinton Herwel fired in from a deflected save to open the visitors’ account within a minute of the start of the match. 
UP-Tuks were left reeling from the shock of Herwel's goal but the home team slowly found their mojo which allowed the University of Pretoria to put immense pressure on UWC.
The men from Pretoria were rewarded for their attacking intent when forward Odwa Makha headed in a beautifully taken corner kick to draw level just before the half-time break.
UP-Tuks picked things up where they left them as defender Simbongile Njokwe made easy work of a wayward header to grab the lead just five minutes into the second half.
There is little doubt that the home team were carried by their vocal supporters, who chanted and danced each time UP-Tuks gained possession or put in a good tackle on a splendidly warm afternoon.
Makha put the result out of reach for the Capetonians as he converted a penalty goal for the University of Pretoria in the 89th minute.
All that UP-Tuks had to do was simply run the clock down to bag yet another final appearance with the venue to be decided after the TUT and CUT semi-final.
