Goals galore in Discovery challenge
Soweto treated to top-drawer action
With temperatures hovering over 30 degrees Celsius in Johannesburg, the Discovery Walter Sisulu Soccer Challenge continues to bring plenty of heat for spectators.
Despite the sunny conditions the community of Soweto came out in their numbers to a packed Nike Centre where teams such as Sneke Chillers FC delivered entertainment and goals galore.
Snake Park-based Sneke Chillers displayed great football against Young Bloodas, lashing them 5-1. The team continues their winning streak in the tournament, having won their first game against Selecao last Sunday.
Sifiso “Messi” Sithole, who had an impressive day at the office was an integral part of the game as he scored two spectacular goals for the club.
“This is my first time playing for Sneke Park Chillers in the Discovery challenge. I started playing for the club early this year as it is a great way to keep myself fit.
“I currently play for the Bidvest Wits reserve team, however, this year I’m focusing on winning the tournament with Chillers. We have been on a winning streak, so we want to continue doing our best,” he said.
Coach of Chillers, Oscar Mohola, who has been leading the team for the past eight years, is happy with the boys.
“When we started the club, it was a just way to keep the boys in Snake Park away from getting involved in bad situations. We have since established a culture for these boys on how to conduct themselves on and off the field, as well as to respect everything they do. They need to make sure that they keep the positive attitude in the tournament,” Mohola stated.
