It never rained but poured for Aloe Spurs FC from Mitchell’s Plain when it was hammered by Mfuleni Heroes FC 11-4 on the group stages of the Rainbow Soccer Tournament held at Brown’s Farm Stadium in Philippi last Saturday.

Heroes booked its place on the last 16 as it finished on top of group E.

The Mfuleni based team dominated from the first half as they led by 6-2 and extended the lead in the second half.

Heroes’ coach Sonwabo Ntoyabo was full of praise for his boys, saying they deserved the win.

“My boys displayed good football. They were very organised and disciplined at the back. And it’s not only about the win, but a boost to their self-esteem,” said Ntoyabo.

With the splendid performance, Ntoyabo believes that they will progress to the finals.

“I’m little bit unhappy with my defence because sometimes they commit silly mistakes, but with the solid midfield and great striking force, I still maintain my view that we will surprise many people,” he said adding that his aim is to put Mfuleni on the map by winning the tournament.

Event organiser Zane Mapete said the knockout stages started on Tuesday.

He said the tournament is still going smoothly, but they have a problem with the shortage of referees.

“In future, we need to have referees from outside Philippi to be able to improve the standard of refereeing.

“Sometimes we feel it’s a bit biased for the teams coming from outside to be officiated by someone from Philippi, while are playing with a Philippi team. That is why we need more referees” said Mapete.
