Football arch rivals from Mandela Park Royal Citizen Football Club and Fire Fighters Football Club faced off this past weekend.

The two u.16 teams play in the Mandela Park Local Football Association league.

The Citizens walked away with the bragging rights when they won the game 5-1.

Citizens coach Khaya Mlonyeni said his boys relaxed after scoring the fourth goal which meant that the rivals could score a goal to try and redeem themselves.

“I was happy with the overall performance of the boys even though they thought they had won the game after scoring the fourth goal,” he said.

He said the game is one of their biggest games in the league because both teams come from the same area and that it usually attracts big crowds.

Mlonyeni said they have won all the games they have played so far and they are confident that they will win the league.

“We have just recently won a tournament so my boys are confident they will win the league as well,” said Mlonyeni.
