2015-09-23 06:00

CATCH up games have been the order of the day in the SCORE Energy Premier League last week.

Last Wednesday night on the Old Grey Sports Club grounds Toshiba Old Grey scored a 2-nil win over Forresters.

Forresters conceded an own goal within the first 10 minutes of the kick off. Tshisa ensured the win for Toshiba Old Grey with a 26-metre free kick with about 10 minutes remaining of the first half.

On the night Hearts entertained Central Acemates at The Valley. Central Acemates came out 2-1 winners here. Andile Madywabe had Acemates up by a goal to nil at half time. Mark Upman equalised for Hearts 11 minutes into the second half.

The game remained in the balance; however, Nathi Xaba earned Acemates 3 league points with a well finished goal.

Last Friday night Callies thumped Warriors 7-nil. Callies went 3-nil up at the half time break.

For Callies Razaan Safedien and Farouk Abrahams helped themselves to a hat trick of goals. Kyle Rudlin netted for Callies to end off the rout.

Toshiba Old Grey and PE Defence fought out a 3-all draw.

At The Valley Hearts got the better of Forresters by 3 goals to 2. Bob Yuill’s goal scoring spree continued when he scored a hat trick for hearts in the first half.

Saturday saw NMMU Madibaz clinch a hard worked 2-nil win over Central Acemates on the Victoria Park Sport Club field. Sachin Jackson had Madibaz up a goal by half time.

Cloudius Sangira finished off the win for Madibaz after some good moving of the ball down the wings and crossed into the penalty area for a well finished header.

Some further catch up games are scheduled for this coming week and next week. The league decider could be the outstanding match between NMMU Madibaz and Callies.

Youth Report

The PEFA Juniors gathered at The Westbourne Oval on Sunday to contest the finals of the Knock Out Cup. The day produced some exciting soccer, as well as tears of joy and disappointment as the matches unfolded.

Chill Beverages sponsored Bashews cooldrinks for all the players throughout the day and Derek Souter of the Algoa Caledonian Pipe Band escorted the teams onto the field.

U/9 division

The first game of the day was the u/9B section where league winners Callies Bravehearts faced up against Priory City.

Having beaten City in both league games during the season it should have been a formality for the Bravehearts to continue their winning streak.

However, City had other plans and held Bravehearts at bay until a goal mouth scramble near the end of the game produced an own goal by the Bravehearts to give City a 1-0 lead which they held until the final whistle.

In the u/9A section the St George’s Aces produced some sublime soccer to beat the Hearts Lads by 2 goals to nil.

Having lost the league to Callies Highlanders, all the Aces players came to the party on Sunday to enable Connor Ferreira to score 2 fine goals to hand his team the victory.

U/11 division

Arch rivals Callies and St George’s faced off in the u/11 section which saw St George’s take an early lead and go on to dominate the game completely with a 7-0 win.

Casey Keevy, Anakin Peens and Myles Boden all scored a brace with Payton Spencer bagging one goal.

The result gives the St George’s team the double win for the 2015 season, taking the honours in both the League and Knock Out competitions.

U/13 division

In the u/13 section league winners Callies came up against their nemesis FC Mabayibone in a game that could have gone either way.

Qhamani Tobi scored a first half goal for Mabayibone which they held until the end. Callies produced some good scoring opportunities but failed to capitalize.

U/15 division

In the u/15 division Hearts FC beat NMMU by 1 goal to nil with a superb header by Cole Schoeman.

The result gives the Hearts team the double win for the 2015 season, winning both the League and Knock Out competitions.

Hearts also won the PEFA leg of the Mayoral Cup last week giving them complete dominance in the u/15 division.

U/17 division

The u/17 final was always going to be an epic battle between KwaDwesi All Stars and St George’s and the game did not disappoint.

With the score level at 0-0 at the end of normal time Phumelela Toto headed in a fine cross after a well structured period of play to give KwaDwesi the lead early in the first half of extra time.

It looked like this was good enough to win the game but in the last minute of extra time Thando Mancam equalised for St George’s to snatch the victory from KwaDwesi and force the game to a penalty shootout which St George’s won 4-3.

The result also gives the St George’s team the double win for the 2015 season, taking the honours in both the League and Knock Out competitions
