WEATHER played havoc with SCORE Energy Cup games as only two games took place the whole weekend. Fields were waterlogged after solid rains last Thursday and Friday.

Last Friday night Callies were leading Warriors 4-1 at Londt Park up to about 20 minutes after halftime when the game was abandoned.

Farouk Abrahams helped himself to a hat trick and Gregory Damons got Callies’ fourth goal at the time.

Last Sunday Central Acemates scored a resounding 4-nil win over Toshiba Old Grey on the Victoria Park Sport Club grounds.

Ten minutes into the first half Lwazi Sahula opened the scoring for Acemates. Three minutes later Andike Madywabe got himself on the score sheet after a well executed midfield attack.

The game went into halftime with Acemates 2-nil up. Midway through the second half Lwazi Sahula scored his second goal and with approximately 7 minutes of normal time left Malcolm Mafuya scored Acemates’ 4th and final goal.
