AmaZulu teach Young Ones a lesson


AmaZulu scored the goals in what could be described conservatively as a one-sided contest.

In fact, the match comes close to beating the all-time scoring record of 16-0, set by ... none other than AmaZulu!

AmaZulu set the record in August 1986 when they beat Ford Pirates 16-0 in the Mainstay Cup.

Today, AmaZulu veteran ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu opened the scoring in the first minute; an early warning for Young Ones. Thabo Mabaso scored in the 12th and 40th minutes. But the proverbial hat should be tipped at Dumisani Ngwenya who scored five goals, in the 44th, 54th, 56th, 69th and 77th minute.

Even if Ngwenya doesn’t score another goal in the tournament, he could take home the top-scorers award.

Siyabonga Mkhwanazi also did well, however, netting a hat-trick in the 63rd, 82nd and 85th minute. Wilford Mathopa got himself a brace, and Sthembiso Dlamini closed the scoring at 14-0.
