THAMSANQA “Thami” Nzondana banged in two goals when Young Ideas defeated the high-flying Golden Aces in their SAFA Nelson Mandela Bay SAB Regional League clash at Motherwell NU 9 Stadium on Saturday.

Aces looked as though they would win the game, but the host side made sure that they would not concede any goals.

Ideas’ skipper and goalkeeper, Asanda Mari, was the busiest of the two goalkeepers.

Whenever Aces launched attacks, Ideas defended in numbers. Ideas scored a beautiful goal courtesy of Nzondana before the break.

The Zwide supporters hoped that Aces would come up with a goal. Aces kept attacking, but they were exposed to counter-attacks.

Aces held their heads high because they put Ideas under immense pressure. Following their relentless attack, Aces were caught in a counter-attack with Nzondana scoring his second that helped Ideas to claim a 2-0 victory.

The log leaders and the league title hopefuls Madibaz Football shared a 2-2 draw with Major Chiefs at Zwide Stadium.
