Lwazi Primary School in Gugulethu finished top of the log in both the boys and girls divisions of the 2015 Spur Masidlale Western Cape League finals and will be treated to a special Spur lunch before taking to the field as mascots for a PSL game later this season.

This is the third year running that the Lwazi girls team has won the coveted title.

The thrilling seven-week league drew to a close at the NY49 Stadium in Gugulethu when the teams from Luzuko, Lwazi, Xolani, Sokhanyo, Ilitha, Vuyane, Sonwabo, Mseki, Lehlohonolo and Vukukhanye battled it out for the grand prize.

Lwazi faced Luzuko in an exciting play-off vir first and second position in a game that finished in a draw of one goal each followed by a penalty shootout.

Lwazi’s keeper did a stellar job and secured top spot for her team with a 2-1 win.

In the play-off for third and fourth position it was Xolani that got the better of their opposition, Sokhanyo to finish overall third with a convincing three goals to zero win.

In the boys’ division it was also a play-off between Lwazi and Luzuko with a one goal to zero win for Lwazi.

Vukukhanye managed to sneak the winning goal against Sokhanyo in a nail biting match that ended in four goals to three, leaving the 2014 champs to settle for fourth place.

Launched in 2005, the Spur Masidlale Soccer Programme has successfully used soccer to educate, inspire and empower young people and is currently recognised as one of the leading youth soccer development initiatives in the country
