YOUNG STARS returned to winning ways with a 3-2 victory over Northern Cape Liverpool during the ABC Motsepe League encounter played in a packed Warrenton High School Stadium over the weekend.

Stars drew first blood only four minutes into the clash, as Graham Mofokeng found the back of the net with a powerful strike.

Warrenton side Stars was boosted by the return of Ricardo Versuurstet , who spent time training with Mamelodi Sundowns last year, when he netted the home side’s second goal 21 minutes into the game.

Liverpool were finally rewarded for their persistence when Bokamoso Mokeng pulled one back 40 minutes later to make it 2-1.

After the restart of the game, the hosts emerged firing on all cylinders.

This is when Hillary Num and ­Letlhogonolo Oliphant were made to work extra hard at the back, but they failed to stop pacey Versuur, who was brought down inside the box in 70 minutes.

Simphiwe Chauke Stars’ captain scored from the spot to put the home side in the lead.

With five minutes remaining, the Kimberley club came back strongly, as they forced Stars to commit errors at the back. Their defence succumbed to the pressure and scored an own goal.

Liverpool put up a big fight in the second half of the match.
