Weekend of Wins for the Under17s and Under19s

Saturday 24th July 2010


Saxon Rovers 1

Under17s 2


The Under17s played a hard fought 1-2 away win against Saxon Rovers on Saturday. The match proved to be a difficult encounter for the boys due to the fact that all of the youngest players in the Under17 squad were fielded. Taking the lead as early as the 3rd minute through a goal by Sonwabile Khumalo, the match seemed headed for another big win. However, a very aggressive Saxon Rovers aided by a poor referee made it very difficult for the scholars to find some consistent rythym.


After sustained pressure in the second half, Saxon duly equalised through a good strike from outside the box that gave goalkeeper Kashief Trumpeter no chance. This lifted Saxon Rovers even more and Cape United found themselves under pressure. A clearance out of defence found Sonwabile Khumalo free in the centre of the field and he executed a great defence splitting pass for Chadwin Petersen to run onto and calmly finish for a final score of 1-2.


New player Mlibo Sotashe made his debut late in the second half and acquitted himself well. Outstanding for Cape United were Sonwabile Khumalo and Thembile Mapukata.


The Under15s secured a hard fought 1-1 draw with Western Cape Sports School and the Under13s beat Avendale Athletico 2-0.


Monday 26th July 2010


Camps Bay 0

Under19s 7 


On a cool evening and a grassless field, the Under19s easily beat Camps Bay 0-7 to advance to the quarter final stage.


The tone was set as early as the fifth minute when Ayanda Patosi scored from close range. During the first half, Cape United were too relaxed, compounded by questionable referreeing. 3 quick goals were scored in the last 15 minutes of the first half, through Devon Saal (2) and Ayanda Patosi. The second by Devon was a fantastic outside of the foot strike from the corner of the penalty area that seemed to be going wide but curled back into the top corner. Half time 0-4.


The second half showed more discipline in the passing completion and the Under19s easily dominated the game, scoring a further three goals. Devon Saal secured a hat trick, whilst Noer Lewis and Sibusiso Nkutha got on the scoresheet. Final score of 0-7.



The U/15 match vs. Ruyterwacht did not take place as the opponents did not arrive to play.
