SHOWVILLAGE United FC fought tooth and nail to beat Camper United 1-0 in their bid to maintain their status in the SAFA Nelson Mandela Bay SAB Regional League at Motherwell NU 9 Stadium on Sunday.

The game was evenly balanced as both sides tried to prevent making unnecessary mistakes in their crucial areas.

However, Showvillage, who are popularly known as The Stallions, were the only side that registered their winning goal thanks to the big striker, Monwabisi Zinto, in the last stages of the first half.

Showvillage supporters expected that their side would find the back of the net in the second half, but Camper defenders did their job excellently.

The game ended with the final score of 1-0 in favour of Showvillage.

In another game, Despatch Pioneers gave their management and their diehard supporters a reason to celebrate with two victories.

Pioneers beat PE Sundowns 5-4 in their first clash and then beat Fairview Rovers 1-0. Both games were played at Khayamnandi Grounds in Despatch.

Young Cosmos kissed the regional league goodbye with their 5-3 loss to the new league champions, NMMU Madibaz, in their match at South Campus Grounds.

The game between Golden Aces and Fairview Rovers did not take place as African Bombers RFC and Barbarians RFC played their league at Zwide Stadium which is the home ground of Golden Aces.
