PE Defence get the better of Madibaz

2015-08-19 06:00

LAST Friday night PE Defence produced a shock in the SCORE Energy Premier League when they thrashed NMMU Madibaz by four goals to one.

Ernest Thangeni’s rich vein of form continued when he helped himself to a hat trick of goals in this match. Thangeni had Defence 2 goals to the good at halftime after some midfield action. Madibaz tried hard to reduce the deficit, but Mxo Mosima, ten minutes into the second half, made it 3-0 in favour of Defence.

Madibaz’ efforts eventually paid off when Lusapho Mlangane scored to make the scoreline look a bit better. Thangeni’s touches paid further dividends for Defence when he netted his third goal of the match to seal a good victory for Defence.

On the night Callies at Londt Park earned soft points when NMB Municipality failed to arrive. In Glendinningvale Toshiba Old Grey kept their Premier title hopes alive with a thrashing of a young Highbury side by 4 goals to nil. Conway Hardiman got Old Grey’s first goal from a header midway through the second half. John Gianakkis then scored a classic after a one on one with the Highbury keeper. Six minutes into the second half John Gianakkis achieved a brace of goals and halfway through the second half Kagan Assam scored Old Grey’s 4th goal. Hearts also kept their title hopes alive with a good solid 4-nil beating of Warriors. Bob Yuill and Mark Upman found the back of the net for Hearts in the first half. Suleiman Mumuni got on the score sheet 21 minutes into the second half and Bob Yuill completed a brace for Hearts in the dying minutes of the game.

Last Sunday in a very close game Callies overcame Central Acemates by one goal to nil. Acemates gave Callies a run for their money. About halfway through the first half Farouk Abrahams put Callies 1-nil up.

Acemates tried their best in the second half to equalise, but Callies’ defence held which ensured them the 3 league points on offer. Last Sunday at the Oval PE Defence’s goal scoring spree continued when they beat NMB Municipality by 5 goals to 1.

Defence were three one up at halftime after goals from Mxo Mosima, Ernest Thangeni and Shakes Mochekgecheckge. Municipality pulled a goal back with Mthunzi Skhweyiya’s field goal. SK Ntlemeza and Mxo Mosima, with his second goal of the game, put the game beyond Municipality with second half goals for Defence.
