UJ celebrates as they dominate TUT

There was poor lighting at the Bid-Vest Wits University Stadium when the University of Johannesburg met up with the Tshwane University of Technology’s Soshanguve football team on Tuesday evening. The match scheduled to start at 08:30 kicked off three quarters of an hour later because as the lights went off at the scheduled start of the match.

Once the lighting problem was sorted out then it was off to a cracker of a match which was entirely dominated by UJ as they went on to win 2-0 in their home territory.

Despite being the stronger of the two sides, UJ struggled to convert most of their opportunities into goals. At half time the score was still sitting at 0-0.

But they seemed to have taken whichever advice given to them by the coach in the change rooms as they came back to score their first goal within 10 minutes into the second half.

Thereafter TUT came back with into the game and they seemed to have been taking control but the goals were just not coming their way. Instead it was UJ that scored their second goal. Surprisingly the Pretoria team had massive support which seemed to have been giving the boys a bit of a boost.

Despite not winning the TUT team has already qualified for the main tournament to be held in Grahamstown in December.
