Ajax Cape Town beat Vasco da Gama

Posted: 19 February 2011 Time: 22:13

Ajax Cape Town beat Vasco da Gama 2-1 in a League clash at Athlone Stadium on Saturday night.

Both Ajax goals were scored by Thulani Serero while Zeka Karkee scored for Vasco.

After a frenetic start which saw a couple of half chances for Vasco through Jonathan Armogam and Sibusiso Zuma, it was the Urban Warriors who broke the deadlock after 25 minutes.

Following a sustained period of pressure, Derek Decamps swung in a cross from the left which Jason Barnard fumbled, allowing Thulani Serero to slot home from 10-yards.

Vasco had a fantastic chance to hit straight back when Zuma laid the ball on for Lebo Mothibantwa 10-yards out, but the on-loan Pirates man smashed the ball high and wide.

Carlos das Neves’ men squared the game at 1-1 after 52 minutes when Zeka Karkee deflected Francois Adams’ ball across the goal, into the net, appearing not to know too much about it.

Ajax had chances to go back in front, but from range neither Brent Carlese nor Sameehg Doutie were able to hit the back of the net.

However, Serero was not to about to let the derby fizzle out into a stalemate.

In the 78th minute he picked up the ball 25-yards out, slicing through the Vasco defence and playing a one-two with Doutie before poking the ball past Barnard, the goal highlighting his incredible pace and skill.

The goal took the wind out of Vasco’s sails and Ajax almost made it 3-1 late on when Billiat’s shot crashed into the crossbar.

BREAKING NEWS: Ajax is one of the Big teams this country can boast of, and given a chance, can win against Barcelona seriously.

Ajax didn't play well but still won. This is the mark of a team hungry to win the league. Winning, in whatever way, is everything for the top three teams now. Sundowns are lagging and thus the two Soweto giants and Ajax will fight it all the way to the end. Pirates are obviously in pole position but can they maintain the momentum? Chiefs are the team with the best squad and will be there at the end as well. In Cape Town, we wish and hope for Ajax to keep winning as this will take them to the title this season. They certainly have been one of the most entertaining sides this season.
