Aces, who played a 15 year old and a few 16 year olds, were no match for Maccabi who needed a victory after dropping 4-points in their last two games.
Credit to the Gold City Giants as they took an early shock 1-nil lead over the log leaders – and the goal came via the excellent Junior Nare, who is just a marvel to watch.
An own Aces goal didn’t do much for the boys confidence and they went into halftime trailing 1-3.
Maccabi scored another 5 goals in the 2nd half with Aces getting a consolation goal from 2nd half substitute Theo Mbiyozo via a penalty.
Sadly for Aces, this was their biggest defeat as Alexandra Black Aces and the 2-8 easily beats their 0-5 loss to African All Stars earlier this season. The defeat was also the highest in the 81 years history of the Black Aces brand and surpasses the 1-7 defeat to Hellenic (28/5/97).
