MAJOR Chiefs’ star striker, Simamkele Dudley Pefile, scored the all-important goal when his side beat Camper United 1-0 in their SAFA NMB SAB Regional League game which was played at Motherwell NU 9 Stadium on Saturday.

Chiefs made a bright start to the game with the home side being kept in their own territory for a most of the first half.

Pefile should have been rewarded with a goal, but Camper United’s goalkeeper, Zenande Ntyinkala, pulled off a brilliant save to deny the sure-footed striker a goal-scoring opportunity.

Camper left full back, Okuhle Mpayipheli and striker, Thando Mjojeli started a good move, but Mpayipheli’s effort went over the posts.

The introduction of the striker, Ndyebo Mazantsi, gave hope to his supporters that Camper would break the ice, but unfortunately, Chiefs’ defence was very tight.

Ntyinkala looked very shaky in the second half as he failed to collect the tame shots and communicate with his defenders, which benefited Chiefs as Pefile headed home an easy goal into an empty net in the nick of time.

Chiefs could have scored their second goal, but Zuko Mafayi’s thunderous shot went wide.

In other SAB Regional League action, Young Ideas shared a 2-2 draw with Hearts in their physical game at Motherwell NU 9 Stadium on Sunday.

Young Ideas’ goals came courtesy of Thabo Manyathi and Malibongwe Dollar Dickson while Yusuf Anwar and Cole Schoeman registered a goal apiece for Hearts.

Ideas and Hearts ended the game without their assistant coach and head coach respectively following an altercation that nearly resulted into a fight between these two technical officials.

Ideas were dealt a second blow after one of their strikers received two yellow cards and headed for the showers early on.
