TUT Football Team Heading To National University Competition With A Match To Spare

Cyril Skosana

The coach says they need to stay fit for competition.

The Tshwane University of Technology’s Soshanguve campus has beaten the University of Pretoria’s (TUKS) football team 2-1 in an entertaining clash that saw both sides showing a lot of skill.
TUKS dominated the match which saw them getting the first goal of the evening. But just as their guard was down, TUT came back to win the Gauteng Football League match.
The win has secured TUT a place in the national universities tournament to start in Grahamstown on 06 December 2010. Despite qualifying for the big tournament the team still has one more game left against the University of Johannesburg and coach says that match is also important.
“Even if we already qualified for the big tournament to be held in Grahamanstown, we will still play our final with commitment to win it, we will therefore use all the strength that we have,” explained coach, Demana S. Connie Madima.
The TUT team will be one of three from the Gauteng province to compete in the South African Sports Universities organised tournament in Grahamstown. Three teams from each province participate in the tournament.
The coach says she does not really have big plans for the December competition except to keep the team fit and keep the area on the football map.
In 2009 TUT came fourth in the national tournament.
