It was an exciting game as the CPUT u/13, played against Flying Eagles in a league match at Vuyiseka Sports Centre in Philippi last Saturday, beatingb them 1-0 in the process. This score was attained when Bahle Ludidi scored a cracker from the eighteen area.Both teams went to the half time goalless, having missed clear chances. CPUT coach Mphumzi Batala described the win as a confidence booster.“This is our third win since the league started in May with one draw and 10 loses. It (win) will elevate us to a better position as we were in position 14 out of 16 teams in the league,” he said. Batala said they were struggling to put a formidable combination as his team was new in the league. “It’s difficult to coach young children because they don’t attend training frequently and some of them don’t even come on a match day. So, I have to improvise all the time,”.Batala said their mission, however, was to finish the season in the top eight.Losing coach Lungani Matiwana, said his team, based in Better Life, deserved the praises for putting up a good effort despite the challenges.“They players played outstanding football.” “It’s a matter of time before we start winning our games, because my boys gave it their all today ... Just that it was not our day,” he said. Matiwana has strongly come out to urge their supporters not to lose hope in them, instead to come and watch their games at the stadium. Philippi East Football Association official member Joe Nombanga, said though, the playing ground is not conducive to playing in the evening. “We are appealing the City to help us fix the lights so that we can play at night to speed up our league games,” he stated.
