Fanteni strike keeps Ajax on top

Posted: 25 November 2007 Time: 18:02

Thembinkosi Fanteni’s goal ensured Ajax Cape Town remained at the top of the Absa Premier League when they beat AmaZulu 1-0 at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Urban Warriors dominated the first half, but both teams failed to seriously threaten the other’s goal, as Usuthu struggled to match the pace of the league leaders.

The match remained goalless at the break.

Fanteni struck a minute into the second half when he headed home a Brett Evans cross to hand Ajax a deserved lead.

AmaZulu wasted a glorious chance in the 68th minute when they were awarded a penalty, but Pere Ariweriyai sent his effort wide.

The hosts pushed more men forward and almost drew level in the 77th minute when John Moshoeu sent his header crashing against the crossbar.

With that went AmaZulu’s final chance of the game as Craig Rosslee’s youngsters maintained their position at the summit of the league.

While Chiefs and Pirates (and sometimes Sundowns) steals the headlines week in and week out; appear on the covers of local soccer magazines (week in and week out!), we quietly go about winning the league with our young, fearless warriors! Well done my brave warriors! They can take away our coaches thinking that they will thus take our success for themselves, but, alas! They cannot take away the winning spirit of the Cape!
Without the bling of Egoli! Fight on my warriors! Fight on!
