YOUNG Pirates FC managed to overcome Villagers 2-1 in their SAFA NMB Masters League game at Motherwell NU 13 Grounds on Sunday.

Villagers started the game on a high note with their midfielder, Reason Fountain, creating goal-scoring opportunities.

The hosts were the first side to register their opening goal courtesy of Welcome Ncandana in the 24th minute. Villagers’ defenders, Bongani Sandi and Sinakho Swartbooi, kept things tight.

After Villagers lost concentration right at the back, Khaya “Chicken” Mhlahlo laid a perfect pass between their counterparts’ defenders with skipper, Ntsikelelo Mdepa, equalising on the stroke of the first half.

The two sides kept on entertaining their supporters. Pirates’ goalkeeper, Fundile Wade Kolisi, pulled off two brilliant saves at point blank range. Villagers’ Khaya Shenxane was instrumental in the midfield.

As Villagers were going forward and launching an attack, Pirates’ midfielder, Kwanele Stemele, intercepted the pass and sent it forward for Sibongile Mzambiya Dlamini to score Pirates’ winning goal in the 56th minute.

In another game, Sparks defeated Joe Slovo 2-0 in their enterprising game. Sparks’ goal hunter, Thanduxolo Bala Gxwalintloko, scored the opening goal in the first half.

Melikhaya Mboma Kula banged in Sparks’ second goal late in the second half to make the final score 2-0 in favour of Sparks.

VW Masters humiliated Soweto Masters 5-0 at Khwezilomso High School Grounds. VW Masters became the 2019 SAFA NMB Masters League champions.
