The opposition was not a tough challenge for the boys. Our guys showed good discipline with their shape and organization,
Their decision making and tactical awareness showed discipline and maturity.
A nice spread of goal scorers, most of which do not usually get to opportunities to score, helps build valuable confidence.
Aces 3 - 1 Shumba
GS: Corban Jacobs, Junior Nare, Sibusiso Ndlovu
Poor game overall, especially in the 1st half, due to poor attitudes against the weakest opposition in the league.
Very clumsy game, poor principles of play especially in attack.
Game improved a bit with the changes in formation and system ofr play.
Score should of been far greater than the 3 goals, but for loads of missed chances.
Introduced a good number of our under 13's who acquitted themselves very well in the game!
Aces 1 - 0 Shumba
GS: Reece Swartz
Not a great performance overall with no fluency due to inability to retain the ball.
The goal came from a bit of magic from Keagon Mitchell who delightfully passed to Reece Swartz who showed composure to lob the keeper.
Hard earned 3-points.
Aces 2 - 1 Shumba
GS: Sithuli Zulu, Thabiso Botopela
We had a great 1st half through an organised system of play. We started with a system that didn't have a striker with a deliberate approach and scored 2 goals in the process.
The 2nd half was not the greatest of displays as we allowed Shumba to attack us which led to us being on the back-foot until we conceded a penalty again through an incorrect technique.
We need to control the game effectively which is a concern.
