KOVSIES TAKES THE LEAD IN TODAYS OPENING VARSITY FOOTBALL MATCH

Kovsies moved off the bottom of the Varsity Football standings with a 2-0 victory over Limpopo in Bloemfontein today.

Kovsies vs Limpopo

It was their first home game of the season and they did not disappoint their fans as second-half goals from midfielder Lehlohonolo Mokoena and replacement Jay Jay Groenewald saw them take all three points. The match began at a frantic pace, with Kovsies pushing forward at every opportunity as they went in search of their first goal of the season.Limpopo were forced to play from their own half, and their defence held up well although their only opportunities on goal were from long range.

The home side thought they had opened the scoring when a booming header from a free kick crossed the line, but the goal was ruled out due to offside. Limpopo tested Kovsies goalkeeper Serasengoe Moodie with a couple of long range efforts, whilst his counterpart Harold Ndhlovu also had to show some agility to keep the game goalless heading into half-time. Kovsies kept the pressure on and created a couple of opportunities for striker Dylan O’Brien, who could not convert as they both went wide of the target. However, the second goal eventually came when the ball was worked to replacement striker Jay Jay Groenewald who controlled it well at the back post and finished with his left foot to make it 2-0.

Bringing much of the excitement often seen at American baseball games, Varsity Sports events are renowned as much for their athletic mettle as they are for their showmanship, with flashy cheerleaders, pyrotechnics, thumping music and blaring fans. The concept is that of a playground, where the best footballers can test themselves against their peers. Market-leading brands sponsor the platform, with Samsung, Debonairs Pizza, FNB, Cell C and Jet Mart as the lead football sponsors.
