COACHING Movers trounced Jabula FC 9 - 1 in the two sides' first encounter in the KwaDukuza Local Football Association Premier League recently.

The Muden, Groutville based side, Movers put on a stellar performance which they have consistently kept rolling having won all three of their last matches.

Striker Nhlakanipho Masinga opened up Movers' account after 10 minutes of play of the first half.

Masinga, however, was not done, five minutes later he netted his second goal which saw Jabula trailing 2 - 0.

Movers' third goal came from midfielder Akhona Mpunzana in the 18th minutes of the first half, asserting the sides' dominance in the game.

Masinga, once again, sustained the barrage of goals against Jabula when he registered his name on the scoreboard with his third goal five minutes after Mpunzana's, putting his side 4 - 0 ahead.

The on-song striker, Masinga scored his fifth goal minutes before the halftime whistle. However, Jabula managed to pull one back leaving the score at 5 - 1 at halftime.

In the second half, Movers kept up their momentum of attack with Mpunzana scoring his brace after 10 minutes of play.

Midfielder Andile Khuzwayo scored his brace within two minutes of each goal putting Movers 8 -1 ahead.

The final nail in Jabula's coffin was driven to the back of the net by Avele Ndayeni.

In the dying minutes of the game, Movers were awarded a penalty which Masinga failed to convert, leaving the final score at 9 – 1 to Movers.

KwaDukuza Local Football Association competition coordinator Magnum Mngadi applauded Movers’ discipline, saying the side seems to be unstoppable this season.

“I would also like to commend all the other teams in our league for exhibiting a high level of play and performance considering the number of goals that have been scored so far,” he said.

Mngadi said in 20 games played in the local league thus far, a total of 120 goals have been scored which is a testament to the high level of performance by all the teams. “As an association, we would also like to thank the supporters for coming out in their numbers to watch the games, which boosts the morale of our players. We would like to commend both our female and male referees for handling the games in a professional manner, we have not received any complaints from any of the teams, this is proof that the workshops that our match officials have been attending are paying off,” he said.
