SUBS go down against EC Bees

2018-01-31 06:01

SWARTKOPS Valley United Brothers (SUBS) could not maintain their lead when they took on EC Bees in their ABC Motsepe League clash that ended in a 2-2 draw at Motherwell NU 2 Stadium on Friday evening.

The Motherwell NU 6 side were quick to register the opening goal, courtesy of their tall striker, Athenkosi Mpati, in the fifth minute of the game.

Bees could not withstand the pressure that SUBS applied to them.

The visitors’ goalkeeper, Khanya Mini, saved his side from giving away more goals. As the first half approached its halfway mark, the Bhisho side skipper, George GG Gawe, led by example as he motivated his side to play their carpet football.

Bees’ left wing, Mncedi Vandala, delivered a thunderous shot, but SUBS’ goalkeeper, Samkelo Ketani, parried the attacking player’s effort over the crossbar. SUBS managed to go to the break leading 1-0.

The home supporters saw their side starting right where they left off in the second half. SUBS increased their lead to 2-0 after Luvuyo Seyile squeezed the ball into the back of the net.

SUBS changed their game plan as they defended with many players, leaving only one player up front. The communication breakdown between SUBS’ defending players helped Bees midfielder Siphosihle Mtule to score an easy goal.

SUBS goalkeeper Ketani fumbled the ball and his defenders also failed to clear the ball away from the box, leaving Bees’ tall striker, Simphiwe Dlamini, to score an easy goal that made the final score a two-all draw.

In another game, Highbury FC secured an away 1-0 victory from Matta Milan in Butterworth. Sibanye FC continued with their winning ways following their 2-1 triumph over Future Tigers in Gelvandale. PE Stars cruised to a 4-1 victory in their away game against Try Again FC.
