First Division round-up

First Division round-up

Posted: 1 November 2012 Time: 2:35 pm

It was all about comebacks in the midweek First Division matches, as United FC and African Warriors overcame deficits to win their respective games.

Vasco da Gama hosted United FC at Parow Park yesterday afternoon, and it took them just six minutes to take the lead, through Angelo Julius.

Five mines later Geoffrey Sserunkuma doubled the lead for Vasco, but United FC pulled one back before the half.

In the second half, however, United came back strong, scoring two goals to win the game.

African Warriors beat Santos 3-2 at home. Warriors took the lead before Santos scored two quick goals, and the half ended with Santos in the lead.

In the second half, however, Warriors went in search of a winner and turned things around. They were awarded two penalties, one of which was converted and the other saved by Pa Dembo Touray, before scoring a late goal to secure a 3-2 win and end the day second on the log with 11 points from five games.

Jomo Cosmos thrashed Dynamos 4-1 at Johannesburg Stadium. Louis Short opened the scoring for Cosmos, and Thabang Monoreng got the second. In the second half Siyanda Hlopo and Allen Lebyane sealed the victory.

Roses United got their first points in the NFD, after losing their first three matches, when they beat FC Cape Town 3-1 at home.

A late Dennis Masina goal was enough to give Mpumalanga Black Aces the full three points against Polokwane City, while Milano United thumped Thanda Royal Zulu 3-1 at home.

The half-time score was 1-1, but goals from Yusuf Abrahams and Lesvin Stoffels in the second stanza secured the home side their second win of the season.

The game between Blackburn Rovers and FC AK was called off as the visitors arrived three hours late for the game.

These guy are watching too much cartoons & reading too much kick-off if they can unless if they are just paging through pictures because an old & sane person will never practice & copy what Zambian players did a year ago. Only fools practice this rubbish instead of winning games to gain promotion.

I don't know if I should be disappointed that these guys are trying to be copy cats of Chipolopolo or if I should be glad that at least they are not copying some European club sh!t. I guess it's better they copy Mjomana's Chris Katongo than Ferguson's Nani. This is Africa not Europe

Good to hear that the secret scoring machine is still doing it. I am talking about Geoffrey Sserunkuma.
I am appealing to any PSL club who is looking for a striker who knows how to score goals to invite Geoffrey Sserunkuma for assessment. I know age can work against this player, but the important thing for any club is have goal opportunities convected - no matter by who
