MÔRESTER JEUG edged out Colville United in their hard-fought ABC Motsepe League provincial playoffs encounter at the Galeshewe Stadium on Saturday, 14 May.

Jeug, the travelling team from Upington, made a promising start when speedy winger Raymond Daniels put Colville United’s defence under pressure.

Colville’s danger man, Delano Abrahams, tried every trick to break Jeug’s defence, but the boys from the Siyanda region remained organised at the back.

Hardworking Jeug winger Daniels went from the half-way line with the ball past Colville’s defence to put the ball in the back of the net, putting his team in the lead.

A breakthrough came for Colville when attacking midfielder Liston Bruwers took a shot at goal that deflected past Jeug’s defender, Jerry Links, and went straight into the net, making the score 1-1.

With a lot at stake, both teams threw everything into the match.

Things got heated and tackles were flying when Colville defender Damon Kruger received a red card for dangerous play.

Towards the end of the first half, both teams tried to move the ball around, but cunning Jeug forward Delmico Malgas sneaked through two Colville defenders to put his side in the lead with a great shot.

The Kimberley side started the second half positively and put a lot of pressure on their opponents. With too much action in the middle of the park, Jeug made a silly mistake and Bruwers was not far from the action when he unleashed a shot just outside the box to level the score.

The Upington players attacked from all angles as they searched for a third goal. They failed, however, to take the opportunities that were handed to them by the home side.

Central midfielder Tshepo Molefi, who was having a bad day, was switched to the back to mark Daniels, who was still causing trouble for Colville with his runs on the right flank. Jeug was finally rewarded when Malgas scored his second goal to give the team a much-needed win with the match ending by 3-2 in their favour.

Colville United is facing an uphill battle, because they have to travel to Upington for the second leg of the ABC Motsepe League provincial playoffs that will be played at the Danie Kuys Stadium on 21 May.
