Old Buck Gin league kicks off with a surprise

2018-04-18 06:02

THE PELFA Old Buck Gin league kicked off last week with a surprise result as well as the drubbing of one of the newcomers in the league.

Priory, who in 2017, ended second last on the log surprised the defending league champions, Kuyga Masters, in their own backyard 2-1.

About 20 minutes into the game Priory’s Brent Kopps had them one up from a well taken free kick. Kuyga Masters went into half-time trying to get back on even terms. Halfway through the second half, Lloyd Croft scored a second goal for Priory.

Kuyga kept trying and eventually had to be satisfied with a lone goal from Enoch Chekure, two minutes from the final whistle.

At Londt Park Sports Club, Shamrocks had their shooting boots on when they nailed newcomers St Albans 9-1. The Rocks scored six times in the first half, with goals coming off the boots of Ranga Pilay, Naj Padachie, Nolan Padayachee and Kumarin Naidoo, who scored a hat-trick.

In the second half, Zayaan Verrie got one, Padachie completed his brace and Naidoo added a fourth.

It was the most goals ever scored by one team in one match in the league’s history.

Newcomers Central Acemates opened their campaign with a 2-1 win over PE City. Acemates’ Nceba Mroqoza scored late in the second half.

Roger Nena pulled one back for City and Elethu Mthakathi sealed the win for Acemates late in the second half.

At The Oval, home team NMBM and African Leopards played out a 3-3 draw.

Tabo Simane, Andile McClean and Ncedisa Goniwe scored for Leopards while Shannon Sokiya with two and Mfundo Gqirhana with one secured the draw for the home side.

Callies got their 2018 campaign off with a winning start beating Fairview Rovers 2-0 on home turf.

Davey Brooks and Nigel Bailey were the two goal scorers.
