Weels get Matroos rolling to the playoffs

Match day for the Mens Regional League final 2021 eventually took place on a chilly Tuesday night at NY49, Gugulethu.

The delay of this fixture was caused by a complaint filed by Silver Spurs against Hanover Park for fielding an ineligible player in the last match of the season when HP faced Vasco Da Gama.

In the Regional Mens League the statutes states that the onus is on each club to record the yellow cards issued and not the responsibility of the League. In many opinions that is a copout by the League as it’s a responsibility which is shifted to the amateur clubs. Be that as it may, that is the law at the moment.
With the above said, the League does publish a summary of cautions on a weekly basis and on that summary, the player in question still had 3 yellow cards recorded and the 4th received against City was not recorded.

Spurs lost the initial case but appealed and won via arbitration resulting in Hanover Park being deducted 3 points and making them end 3rd on the log with Trinitarians second and Spurs 1st meaning that Spurs would face Stream A winners, Matroosfontein.

Many predicted the match to be tactical and a bit on the slow side but it instead it turned out to be an exciting and tactical encounter. Although both sides showed aggression in attack, it was Matroos who seemed the more dominant. Cheslyn Visagie, the Spurs defender, had a torrid time keeping his defence in check while they saw off the danger posed by Matroos. It was the side from the “dorp” who scored first but Spurs managed to get a goal back by halftime.

In the second half Matroosfontein continued their rhythm as they probed the Spurs defence while Spurs seemed to have only game plan which was playing the ball to top goal scorer, Ameen Awaldeen but he was kept at bay by James Berziek, the Matroos captain and central defender.

With the 2 goals scored in the second half, the side from Matroosfontein saw out the rest of the match and prevented any danger offered by Spurs to threaten them.

At the end of the match Coach Victor Tajoodien of Silver Spurs had this to say: “Although we are devastated, Matroos was the better team on the night and we wish them well in playoffs”

Coach Patrick Weels “I’m over the moon, we waited long for this and the players gave a good account of themselves tonight.”

Matroosfontein advance to the regional playoffs where they aim to take the leap to the ABC Motsepe League this weekend.

Spoils shared at Hickory Battle

On Saturday Hanover Park visited their old rival Silver Spurs at Hickory Road in a much anticipated SAFA Regional League 3rd division match.

The visitors entered the weekend with 2 games in hand with a double header and could potentially have been placed top of the log if both games were won.

The action was nonstop from the start with both sides not willing to give an inch of advantage to their opponent and it was clear that bruising tackles with spirited performances was on the cards for the day. The match could be described as a classic match of 2 halves where either side could’ve walked off as winners.

Hanover Park had the upper hand in the first half with Spurs doing most of the defending. In the 11th minute the home side conceded a corner and in their failure to clear their goal area, Carl Van Reenen from Hanover Park was allowed to pounce on the loose ball and score the opening goal of the match.
The visitors’ lead was short lived as not more than a minute later Rabian Beukes equalized for Silver Spurs after latching onto a free kick in the Hanover Park half.

The rest of the half saw few attempts by both sides but with Hanover Park looking more likely to score. Just before the break, Aasif George the Hanover Park attacker, did well to round the Spurs defence and squeeze his pass into the small box where Mikyle George calmly took his shot but Spurs’ goalkeeper, Carlo Jones pulled off an impressive save.

After the break the home team improved their performance and made the 2nd half their own. They had a bit more possession and created more opportunities to score. The Spurs front man, Brandon Schroeder, missed some golden opportunities especially late in the second half but in the end a tight and not so pretty football match ended with both sides sharing the spoils.

City Claim Victory In 7 Goal Thriller

Johnston Road was the venue which hosted Junction Rovers and Cape Town City in a bottom of the table clash in stream B of the Regional Mens League.

Both teams are in a rebuilding phase this season as they have new coaches in charge this year with a change in player staff to their respective squads. With neither team able to record a win thus far, the opportunity was up for grabs for either coaches to record their first 3 pointer.

The first few minutes of the match saw City with a slight upper hand which resulted in their opening attempt by Austin Faro but his attempt was saved by Junction goal keeper Shakeel Arendse.
Junction quickly responded when Lucian Johannes found himself with time and space in the City box but he scuffed his shot wide.

The contrasting playing styles was clear to see as the visitors kept their width while trying to draw the opponents inside in an attempt to free up space for those wide players. This did however leave City vulnerable at times when defending as most of the Junction attacks came from the left and right hand side of the field.

Rovers missed a prime opportunity to open the scoring when Sikeurro Sheller and Mikyle Adams failed to communicate with each other inside the small box of the City goal keeper and both attempted to shoot simultaneously and, in the end, fluffed the attempt wide of the posts.

In the 30th minute the tall Cape Town City goal keeper, Sixolisiwe Madolwana, was called into action and saved an attempt by Lwandile Dlokova who only had the keeper to beat to put his side in the lead. Junction Rovers had their fair share of the ball and created opportunities but they lacked the final pass and composure to make those attempts count.

Late in the first half the defence of Junction Rovers was caught napping when Sihle Doyiza guided his curling free kick into the opponents’ area and teammate Faro latched onto the end of it and scored the opening goal taking his side 1-0 up.
Sisonke Lubelwana from City came close to doubling his side’s lead when his shot from outside the Junction box was heading for goal when keeper, Arendse, tipped the attempt over the crossbar.

Just before the halftime whistle Lebelwana had another attempt on target which Arendse got a hand to but this time the shot was too strong for him to save and crossed the goal line to take City 2-0 into the break. The good build up from the middle of the park which led to the attempt made the goal a bit more precious.

Early after the restart Cape Town City were awarded a penalty as the Junction keeper was adjudged to have fouled Luvulo Bhangushe in the penalty area and Sifumba Luphumlo converted from the spot.

Shortly after Junction’s Lucian Johannes, assisted by Mikyle Adams, found the back of the net to get his side on the scoresheet and instill some belief in a comeback. The second half was very different compared to the first as Rovers kept the ball long and influenced the match with substitutions which made an impact in their attack. This aerial ploy had City under pressure and were left defending for many parts of the half.

City had another penalty awarded but Lisakhanyo Mene had his spot kick saved by Arendse. With the match a bit more open, opportunities were created on either side and unfortunately the home side had too many near misses to be able to salvage any points from the encounter.

The match ended with a 4-3 victory to Cape Town City and leaves Junction Rovers firmly rooted at the bottom with 1 point.

Goal scorers were:
Junction Rovers – Lucian Johannes, Marlin Wilters and Vuyisa Sigalelana
Cape Town City – Austin Faro x 2, Sisonke Lubelwana and Sifumba Luphumlo

Matroosfontein Ahead of the Stream

Reagan Faro in red, leading the Matroos attack

In a double header weekend, Heideveld side Goal 50 Unite, hosted Matroosfontein on Saturday at Heideveld in an early 2pm kick off. The visitors came to Heideveld with a better record for the season than their hosts as coach Patrick Wheels’ charges played 2 games of which they won 1 and drew 1 while Goal 50 Unite lost both their opening matches.

One of the first chances of the match fell to Matroosfontein when Lorenzo Jaap did extremely well out wide to round the defence and deliver a good cross into the area of Goal 50 but Keanan De Wet struck his shot over the crossbar. It was clear that the lanky striker Reagan Faro, would be a concern for the Goal 50 defence as his work rate, energy and ability to link up with his teammates was plain to see.

The home side was not outdone by their more favoured opponents as they managed to compete for possession in the midfield but to their own undoing, lost the ball by unforced errors as they were guilty of not releasing the ball quick enough. At the times when they tried to release the ball quicker, their passes were either intercepted or not completed.

Matroosfontein captain James Beziek dictating play on Saturday

The first half seemed more like the Heideveld side were waiting on their opponents’ errors and then play off those mistakes but many times the action took place deep in their own half and they were not effective in playing the ball further up the field.

On the other hand, Matroos looked more structured, energized, executing good combinations, confident in their plan and enjoyed plenty of possession in the midfield with captain, James Beziek dictating the pace and attack with his passing and vision.

The visitor’s first goal came shortly before halftime when Albertino Van De Heuwel guided a well delivered corner kick, taken by Curtley Poole, into the far corner of the poles beating goal keeper, Niven Scott.

Just after 9 minutes in the 2nd half, Goal 50 was unfortunate to concede as the visitors scored their 2nd goal. Faro struck a shot from outside the area and goalkeeper Scot, lost his footing as he slipped and to his dismay could only watch the ball pass him into the back of the net.

Faro scored his second when he took charge of a free kick just outside the home side’s area and struck the ball pass the diving Scot who wasn’t quick enough to react and prevent the goal being scored.

The second half consisted of the hosts trying their utmost to get back into the encounter and at times they had the upper hand as the visitors seemed to have relaxed a bit. With changes being made by the home side, they were more penetrative and created opportunities inside the final third. There hard work was rewarded with a penalty and Jean Pierre Jafta made no mistake when he converted for the consolation goal.

Trinnies (white) beat Junction (yellow) 4-0 on Saturday

Matroosfontein ended the double header weekend with 6 points as they beat Crystal Palace on Sunday to enter the week top of the table in stream A.

Goal 50 managed to turn their fate around on Sunday when they beat Greenwood Athletic 3-2 making it 2 losses in a row for the Retreat side as they were beaten by Bayview FC with the same score line on Friday night.

In other matches, Silver Spurs were brought down to earth after their great start to the season when they drew both their matches the weekend with Bluegum and Jamestown respectively. Vasco Da Gama, 2nd placed in stream B, picked up 4 points the weekend as they beat Jamestown 2-1 on Saturday and were gifted the points on Sunday after their opponents, Cape Umoya, failed to pitch for their game.

Coach Zaheer Simons from Trinitarians will be relieved and happy after his side earned all points up for grabs after their opening loss. Trinitarians trounced Junction Rovers 4-0 on Saturday and beat Hanover Park 1-0 on Sunday at home in Uitsig.

Other results: Sunday – Bayview 0-4 Woodlands, Crystal Palace 1–3 Matroosfontein, Junction Rovers 1- 1 Bluegum

Saturday – Cape Town United 0-0 Woodlands, Crystal Palace 1-2 Ocean view, Cape Umoya 2-0
Cape Town City

Bluegum victorious at Home

On Saturday 17th Bluegum United hosted newly promoted side Trinitarians in the SAFA Regional Mens League at Bonteheuwel Sports Ground.

The scorching hot weather didn’t deter the 2 sides from playing at a high intensity and the home side quickly made their intentions felt in the 4th minute when Matthew Pelton delivered his corner and Yaseen Koopman had his header defended, much to relief of the visitor’s technical staff.

Trinitarians were facing a relentless period of attack by Bluegum and the fierce tackles exchanged between both sides forced the first substitution of the match for the visitors when, Lyle Johnson replaced Jeffrey Ruiters within 20 mins of the start. Bluegum had the ascendency in the first 20 mins of the match, looking sharper, quicker to the ball and more decisive in attack.

With the restart after the water break, the momentum shifted to the visitors as the forced change for Trinitarians also resulted in a positional change which saw experienced campaigner, Rubin Jacobs, shifted in the heart of the midfield. The result of this move had Trinnies more in possession and on attack for the rest of the first half. Although they struggled with the pitch, they held firm with moving the ball through the zones and creating chances like, when Ryan Paulse missed his opportunity to score as he headed the ball past the upright at the end of the half.

The second half started just as intense as the first when Bluegum substitute Chadwin Erickson received the ball from broken play in the Trinnies half, took the shot but it was saved and the visitors immediately countered but also missed their opportunity with the shot going wide.

The first goal of the match was scored by Bluegum’s Ishrafiel Lottery after the away side’s defence failed to deal with a free kick in the box. The home side doubled their lead when Asheeq Valentine found Matthew Pelton in the area and Pelton scored.
Trinitarians scored their 1st goal from a corner when Jason Warner took advantage of a sleepy Bluegum defence. The home side quickly struck back when Muazzam Esau delivered a good pass to Pelton on the edge of the opponents’ box, Pelton miskicked and William Rhode latched onto the loose ball and scored.

Trinnies, determined to get something from the match scored another just before time when substitute Charles Japhta scored his team’s second after goalkeeper Maselino Keet (Bluegum) saved an attempt by Jason Warner. Bluegum secured their first win of the season with this 3-2 win over Trinitarians.

In other matches played in Stream B, Silver Spurs secured their 2nd win of the season against Vasco when they won 3-1 on Friday night. Hanover Park were held to a 2-2 draw with Cape Umoya while Jamestown earned their first point of the season in a draw against Cape Town City.

In Stream A Crystal Palace has 2 wins from 2 matches as they beat Cape Town United in Langa on Saturday, goals scored by former Greenwood player, Tevin Horne and Griffin Carolus scored the 2nd, while Greenwood earned Cape District bragging rights as they beat Ocean View 4-1 in Ocean View. Matroosfontein and Bayview shared the spoils on Friday night with a 1-1 draw and Woodlands overcame their defeat from the previous week and beat Goal 50 Unite 5-3.

This week the teams look forward to double headers in both streams.

Hanover Park see off Newcomers

The SAFA CT Regional Mens 3rd division kicked off last Saturday after more than a year after the league was interrupted due to the Covid#19 Pandemic.

The interruption resulted in no relegation for teams and also meant that the side who led the log at the time, Hanover Park, represented the region in the playoffs for a 2nd division spot. In addition, the 2 promoted teams of 2019/20, Jamestown and Trinitarians were included in the 2021 season making it an 18-team league. For the 2021 season the 18 clubs voted for a 2-stream league consisting of 9 teams each where each league winner would face each other for a playoff spot.

Newcomers Jamestown had the tough task of hosting one of last season’s form sides, Hanover Park, as their first assignment of their campaign. Hanover Park had the first attempt in the match when Azeem Samuels was the quickest to react from a freekick but struck his header off target and over the crossbar.

Jamestown, determined not be outdone by their opponents, created two attempts by Levi Benjamin in close succession in the 10th minute but he was unfortunately not able to make it count.
As the 1st half progressed the match became more balanced with both sides enjoying their fair number of attempts and their different styles of play was more evident. The home side had a more patient build up and managed to string a few passes together while the Hanover were looking to get the ball to the front men as quickly as possible.

As halftime approached it was clear that the away team were more structured in their positions on the pitch, while Jamestown were quite the opposite as they were covering quite a bit of ground in defense and attack which resulted in them looking a bit more fatigued than their opponents at halftime. Jamestown’s Mikyle Adams could’ve taken his side ahead when he did well to deceive the opposing defenders in the area but delayed the shot and lost possession because of it.

Early in the second half and Hanover Park came close to scoring as Mikyle George was at the end of a Fernel Abrahams’ corner kick but missed the target. Jamestown were holding their own until the 10th minute when Mikyle Adams received a 2nd yellow card and with that received his marching orders. With the home side down to 10 men, the visitors found the gaps in the Jamestown defense mush easier to penetrate and Mikyle George with Roderick Francis making the most damage.

15 minutes into the 2nd half and Jamestown concede a corner as Gilberto Olveira makes a brilliant tackle to deny Francis but from the subsequent corner taken by Abrahams, Hanover Park scores via a Mikyle George header to take his side 1-0 up.

As the match nears its end the away side created more chances but the Jamestown goalkeeper displayed some good saves keep the score at 1-0. Unfortunately for Jamestown the few chances they created were not fruitful as the defense of Hanover Park held firm led by Aqeel Jappie.

League update at lockdown

As our country experiences our first lockdown we take the time to have a look at what stage in the season the SAFA 3rd division was suspended and its impact.

After round 17 Hanover Park are at the summit due to a better goal difference than Greenwood Athletic and newcomers Crystal Palace as all three teams have 31 points. Hot on their heels is Cape Town City with 30 points who also have the best goal difference in the league due to their high goal-scoring rate of 45 goals in 17 matches.

Other newcomers Woodlands, who have been doing well to keep in the top 5 are only 2 points (29) adrift from the top 3 while former log leaders Silver Spurs are in 6th spot with 28 points.

Between 8th and 1st place sees only a 5 point difference which offered an exciting scenario before the suspension of the league.

Matroosfontein who was at the same time last season in the top 3, are now facing relegation as they are rooted at the bottom with only 8 points and recording 2 wins this season. Cape Town United and Goal 50 are part of the threatened relegation mix and are in danger of the drop if they fail to record some positive results once the league resumes or IF it resumes.

Teams having a better record this season compared to last year are Bluegum United, Rebels, Bellstar and Cape Town City, with the latter in the top 5.

With the lockdown imposed having 21 days without any activity all clubs are in an unfamiliar and scary position with a vast number of challenges facing clubs.

Player fitness and readiness is probably the most concerning for technical staff as players might be keeping physically fit at home, but will need time to adapt to match fitness post the lockdown.

The ability to adapt to the time off will determine which teams will benefit the most if a return does happen. If the league does resume then the break may offer clubs like Matroosfontein, Cape Town United and Goal 50 an opportunity to recover as the lockdown might serve as a leveler as it is possible that other teams will struggle to continue the form they had before the break.

Another talking point is that the uncertainty of the restart to the league may cause some teams to lose key players. Although the 3rd Division is an amateur league, some teams do remunerate players and the fact that there are no matches taking place, may cause players not to be paid.

The reality of the matter is that the 21-day break may change the whole complexity of the current log positions especially considering the points difference between 15th place and 1st place is only 16 points at the moment compared to last season where it was 24 points at the same stage.

SAFA will assess the situation after the lockdown and decide the way forward and hopefully, by then we would’ve flattened the curve and have a chance of returning to the sports field but also bearing in mind that there is also the real possibility that leagues may not resume.

Exciting restart on the cards!!

This weekend sees the continuation of the SAFA 3rd division after the end of year break and with 7 matches played so far, we take a brief look at the results of some of the teams.

It’s not unusual for newly promoted teams to do well in their first season in this league and this year Crystal Palace and Woodlands United are continuing the trend as they are placed in the top 3 at the end of 2019.

Palace are occupying top spot and recorded some good results especially beating Hanover Park 3-2 in November while Woodlands had a good run in the Nedbank Cup reaching the regional finals and finishing 2019 in the 3rd spot. Woodlands are facing an uphill battle for the rest of the season as they struggle to secure training grounds in Mitchells Plain and this leaves Coach Zarrie with a tough job to prepare for matches.

Silver Spurs are looking the business this year with target man Ameen Awaldien in fine form netting 6 goals so far. The technical team is now headed by Coach Russell Davids and the squad is a good blend of youth and experience which should see them make an attempt at the title depending if they can be consistent with their performances.

Hanover Park have had a mixed bag of results in their first 7 games but one would expect them to improve as the season continues and apply pressure on the top of the table. With Coach Franklin Davies at the helm, anything is possible as his positive motivation and guidance are essential for his troops every week.

Much was expected from Nova Nacional this season as the team realigned their focus on their goal to be in the PSL in the next few years and the expectation was valid with some key acquisitions in the technical team before the start of the season. Former Bafana Bafana left-back David Kannemeyer is heading the technical team after having brief coaching spells at The Magic (ABC Motsepe) and Cape Town All Stars (NFD). Kannemeyer still has plenty of time to improve his team’s results and has the resources to do so.

In what could be termed as a rebuilding stage for Greenwood, their start to the season is probably their worst since campaigning in the league about 3 years ago. Coach Fadiel Losper is at the helm this season and in charge of the rebuild which includes some younger players in the squad but still has the stability with the experience of players like Nathan Brown and Dean Williams.

Cape Town City is having a better start compared to last season as they also have a change in the technical team which is now headed by Coach Richard Lovell. City’s positive results have seen them end 2019 in the top half of the table and a few of the team’s performances have been a pleasure to watch as the young squad uses their pace and skill to their advantage against their opponents.

Scrolling down to the foot of the table is a surprise to many if last season was anything to go by as Matroosfontein, who were contenders last season, are now languishing at the bottom of the log. With only 1 win from 7 matches so far, Coach Patrick Wheels and his team will be eager to get this year going and start his team’s recovery and ensure their survival.

Another team finding it tougher than last year is Cape Town United who are yet to record a victory but only lost once and drew 5 matches in their 6 played so far. The Langa team will be looking at the next few weeks as a crucial part of their season if they want to avoid the relegation zone by midseason.

It’s still a long way to go and the situation can change for all 16 teams and with no one really dominating yet, it keeps the excitement going for spectators and hope alive for clinching the top spot. Check out this week’s fixtures and make sure to catch a game.

Regional 3RD Division 19/20

 

Our Engen KO Challenge 2019 Wrap Up

The Cape Town leg of the Engen Knockout Challenge (EKOC) 2019 took place from the 26th – 28th July 2019 and was hosted by Wanderers FC of the Langa LFA.

The EKOC is in its 17th year and the Wanderers FC and tournament LOC must be congratulated on hosting an efficient and well-organized event, extinguishing any pre-tournament concerns about the ability to do so.

Results at the end of day 1 were an early indication that the local football landscape is changing as the traditional LFA clubs were no pushovers to the more resourced academy teams.
Wynberg St Johns had a good tournament and was victorious in their first 2 matches against the more fancied Ulana Academy and Cape Town City sides.

The Maitland based FN Rangers also turned a few heads when they held Hellenic to a 1-1 draw and later Cape Umoya to a goalless draw. Against Cape Umoya, Rangers were brave enough to use their defenders to start their attack from the back with solid build-up play and both sides saw missed chances but the encounter was entertaining.

Hanover Park gave a good account of themselves reaching the semi-finals of the competition, eventually bowing out to Cape Town City via a penalty shootout. This was preceded by a win against Everton and a 2-2 draw with Stellenbosch FC on day 1.
A 3-1 win against Jomos Power from Atlantis booked their spot in the quarters where they defeated hosts, Wanderers 1-0 to advance to the semis.
The lanky Hanover Park midfielder Carl Keyster was the stand out player displaying his skills and work rate both in defence and attack.

As usual, many opinions and views are shared at tournaments and it was no different this time. The discussions on day 1 were dominated by the lack of football quality on display. The direct approach seemed to be the chosen tactics by the majority with teams trying to win the 2nd ball whilst others stuck to their style of play.

A confession by one of the coaches who took part in the tournament was that he chose to follow the “long ball” route in his first match but reverted to his team’s passing game in his following game where they won and the players had a more enjoyable experience.

Tournaments in Gauteng are often seen as a step up because they are slightly different to what we normally experience in Cape Town. The Gauteng tournaments often have more teams who enjoy passing the ball and keeping it on the deck.
Appropriate then that the Cape Town winner, Ubuntu, was one of the teams who displayed mostly attractive football and they will be representing the province at the national event.

There might be a difference of opinion with regards to the game plans of coaches but there was an agreement with the attendees that the quality of the players were noticeable. Each match had at least a player from either side who displayed their ability and skill level to impress spectators.

To sum it up, the EKOC 2019 was a success and what’s left to do now is wish Ubuntu Football Academy all the best for the Champs of Champs in Gauteng.

 

This is how the teams ended.

Summer Round Up – Part 1

With both the SAFA 3rd division and 2nd division all done and dusted we take a look at what was what in the 2 local Cape Town respective leagues.

The 3rd division was probably the toughest it’s been for a long time with no specific team dominating the league. Young Pirates clinched the title with only 58 points which is a low tally compared to previous seasons where the same point total would get a team a 2nd place on the log.

A few teams were in and out of the top 5 but it was clear that Pirates and Matroosfontein were the pacesetters with Greenwood keeping in touch. Both Pirates and Matroos were newcomers to the league this season after winning promotion from the playoffs and together with Nova Nacional were part of a group of new teams who made their presence felt in their first season.

The participation of Cape Town City this season was a cause of curiosity as many were wondering about the team make up and asking if the PSL club would make an impact on the local 3rd division. A development tool for City, the team showed promise and excitement in the friendly matches preceding the season but unfortunately, the lack of experience seemed to be their Achilles heel.

This year proved to some that this league is not easily won and it takes more than just pitching up on a match day and expecting to win as teams with fewer resources can make an impact.

A total of 771 goals were scored in 480 matches for the season and many teams displayed some entertaining football. We also had a few comebacks like Kuilsriver who clawed their way up from the drop zone only to be relegated after DC ruling had 12 points deducted from them. Other teams like Goal 50, Cape Town City, Rebels, and Bluegum United managed to survive and were often in the relegation cauldron.

With Ubuntu FC being relegated from the NFD, the possible ripple effect for the 3rd division meant that more than the usual 2 teams could be relegated but fortunately both Steenberg United and Young Pirates won their respective playoffs, meaning that only 2 teams were dropped from the league.
Those 2 teams were Bayview FC, who are the current Coke Cup champs and Kuilsriver.
