Sowetan - - Dipapadi - By Sowe­tan Re­porter

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.
