KaziFootball : Goals were galore at the Philly’s game quarter finals (Match day 9)
It was goal after goal at the Philly’s games today. It was raining goals in Tembisa
Soccer fans in Tembisa were shown a terrific football when Umlilo and Rebels drew 3-3 at Esiqongweni section on Thursday afternoon. This was a game of two halves.
The Rebels from Rabie Ridge in Midrand were the first team to score two goals before half time. The coloured boys looked like they were going to easily book their spot in the last four. However Umlilo took over the second half, loading more pressure which forced Rebels to play deeper and commit silly mistakes which ultimately led to a penalty. Umlilo recorded their first goal. They came back to score two more goals to snatch a lead. The rebels extinguished the fire when they equalized and increased intensity. Fans were up in their feet, whistling and dancing as these two side wrestled.
The Jerry Skhosana boys, Amasokolara made a feast of goals when they won 10-2 against The Bees. Amasokolara dominated the game, making accurate passes which awarded them with four goals in the 1st half. The water break which was given by the referee to both teams did not work for The Bees.
They just found it hard to match the fitness of the suffering boys, from Mashemong in Tembisa. In the second half, Amasokolara increased the intensity and scored six more goals. At this stage it seemed as if The Bees were about to be suspended from the tournament, as the rule says should you be defeated ten zero, then you are suspended in the next edition of the tournament. The Bees tried to fly and pulled two goals before a tenth goal which prompted the referee to blow a final whistle and call it a day.
The Bees were promoted to the seeded teams after Mzantsi FC were suspended for ill-discipline. They will need a miracle to come back to this game. Amasokolara are the 2013 winners. They will be looking forward to bringing back the glorious year to Mashemong section and be the 1st team to take home the new price of R160 000 home.
Amandla FC owned by the MEC of education in Gauteng, Panyaza Lesufi continues to find it tough to score. Amandla locked horns against Abarondoli. It was a very dull game. It hardly provided goal scoring opportunities and ended in a goalless draw. Abarondoli featured professional players such Lerato Chabangu, Katlego Loke, Tsietsi Mahoa and Benson Mhlongo.
Mad Bulls played a 1-1 draw against AmaBEE who are placed number three in the SAFA second division, ABC Motsepe league.
The second leg of these fixtures will be on the 27th when the tournament resumes after the Christmas break. An electrifying atmosphere will be the theme of the day as it will be do or die for these remaining eight teams.
