THE Verulam United FC and Classic FC clashed yet again in the preseason Cup in front of a packed recreation ground in Verulam recently.

Verulam United were finally able to break the “hoodoo” that plagued them last season in the Cups and were able to take it all this time around.

The game was punctuated with a high tempo exhibited by both teams pressing for an early goal which kept both defences busy.

In the 15 minutes, Musona from Classic beat the off-side trap and struck a powerful shot into the net.

United came back firing and were duly rewarded via a set piece outside the box with Mdu Nontanda the evergreen free kick specialist finding the equaliser when everyone thought of penalties.

Yet the action was far from over with Pro Gina getting a goal with a good header for Classic, before Ntokozo Zondi scored the equaliser in the dying minute of the game which led to penalties which United finally completed the come-back to win, 5-4 on penalties.
