The Rep - - SPORTS SCENE - ABONGILE SOLUNDWANA

Amavarara drew 2-2 in a soc­cer game against The Guys FC from Bizana when they went head to head in the pro­vin­cial ABC Mot­sepe League at the Dumpy Adams Sports Com­plex at the week­end.

The Guys, who were at the bot­tom of the log stand­ings, ar­rived with their A game in an at­tempt to avoid rel­e­ga­tion and played a com­pet­i­tive game against Amavarara who have won most of their games and are sec­ond on the log.

The Bizana team scored their first goal in the first half of the match, putting pres­sure Ty­ron Mi­las will host an ac­tion-packed Queens Fit­ness Aer­o­bics marathon fes­ti­val at the Thobi Kula In­door Sports Com­plex on Sat­ur­day.

Aer­o­bics trainer Tyrese Nokonyana said aer­o­bics teams would be com­ing from Bloem­fontein, East Lon­don, Mthatha, Makhanda, Ali­wal North, Kim­ber­ley, Dur­ban and Ko­mani. on Amavarara which had the home ground ad­van­tage but strug­gled to score an equaliser.

Amavarara scored their equal­is­ing goal in the sec­ond half, but The Guys man­aged to add to their score again when they slot­ted their sec­ond goal just 30 min­utes be­fore the end of the game.

The Guys tight­ened their back de­fence line af­ter the sec­ond goal, mak­ing it al­most im­pos­si­ble for Amavarara to score again.

Amavarara did their best to pen­e­trate The Guy’s de­fence line and scored their sec­ond and equal­is­ing goal just three min­utes be­fore the end.

Amavarara com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager

Nkonyana said, “We have 40 tro­phies and 78 medals and the win­ning team will walk away with R500 in cash.”

The marathon started six years ago and was aimed at pro­mot­ing a healthy life­style for Chris Hani dis­trict com­mu­nity mem­bers.

“The com­pe­ti­tion will take place in three cat­e­gories which will be for youth, adults and vet­er­ans.

The work­out pack­age will in­clude Lunga Gwana ad­mit­ted to the com­pet­i­tive­ness of the game by say­ing, “The Guys gave it their all to en­sure they would not be rel­e­gated.

“If they had lost to us, they would be out of the league now. It was a great game played by two hard­work­ing teams, but our fo­cus now is on our next game against the Mdantsane-based Tor­nado.”

Gwana said if his team won against Tor­nado FC it would stand a bet­ter chance of go­ing through to the next round of the league.

Amavarara will play against Tor­nado at Dumpy Adams on Sat­ur­day. The kick-off time is 3pm. high-lo, zumba, box, step, func­tional and a team chal­lenge.”

The team chal­lenge will com­prise five mem­bers and an in­struc­tor who will be judged on their level of fit­ness and com­bi­na­tion as a unit.

He urged peo­ple from Ko­mani and all areas to join and be a part of the cul­ture.

The event will be held in part­ner­ship with The Rep. Other spon­sors are Ds­rac and Mbambo Att­tor­neys.
