HUNDREDS of spectators converged at the Motherwell NU 9 and Motherwell NU 11 Stadiums to watch the enthralling MOFA League games over the weekend.

In the first Premier League game at Motherwell NU 11 Stadium on Saturday, fans saw FC Motherwell sharing a 1-1 draw with Young Ideas, while Tomorrow Stars gave Highland Spurs a run for their money before going down 1-0 in the second game.

Amathole FC punished Happy Stars 3-1, with Crystal Palace cruising to a 2-1 win over Young Tigers. Despite their 1-0 loss to SUBS, Manchester FC fought tooth and nail until the last minute of the game.

FC Angels threw everything into the game but it was not to be as they lost 2-0 to Valencia at Motherwell NU 11 Stadium on Sunday.

The long-awaited game of the weekend was between Real Aces and Shining Stars, with the sides playing to a 1-1 draw.

The most hotly contested game was Showvillage’s 4-3 triumph over Manchester United.

Royal Bucks faced a much-improved Real Strikers, but managed to edge them out 2-1.

The last game at Motherwell NU 11 was between the First Division sides, Arsenal FC and Seven Sundowns. After a close game, Arsenal triumphed 1-0.

Seven Sundowns captain, Mthunzi Zane Mrwebi, thanked Blue Ribbon for supporting their club.

“Everybody fought for their side, because Blue Ribbon is our motivator.”
