WSU rookies make a mark in varsity cup
Rookie team Walter Sisulu University (WSU) landed a major blow in the Varsity Football Cup when they whipped North West University (NMU-Pukke) 3-2 in the opening round.
Most of the first-round battles ended in goalless draws leaving six teams on an equal number of points.
The Tshwane derby – between University of Pretoria (Tuks) and Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) – got under way on Thursday.
Wits University finally got their revenge and made up for their embarrassing 3-0 loss to the University of Western Cape (UWC) in 2013 by beating them this time.
They host Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMUMadibas) in a 6pm kickoff tomorrow.
UWC who are known to be untouchable at home, have an advantage against Tuks.
But Tuks are likely to up their game to show they are not the reigning champions by default.
TUT will host WSU. After a strong start in the tournament, they will be looking at building up on their success to stay on top of the log.
NWU-Pukke need to work hard on their defence before their clash with Vaal University of Technology if their last game is anything to go by .
Vaal University will be gunning to strengthen their lead over Pukke on the log.
