First game of the season at home to Wits Juniors finally took place after a delay of 3 weeks.
Black Aces 2-1 Wits Juniors
Brandon Bam (x2)
Not the greatest performance but the boys dragged out the result. Team shape was very poor through out the entire game. Good for the boys to see the level at which they will be expected to play at this year.
Black Aces 2-2 Wits Juniors
Boys started off on the strong foot and had a brilliant first half. Put the pressure on the oppositions back line and was very effective. Settled a bit too much and got a bit rattled after conceding a goal. Tough game overall and the boys faced a few challenges which brought them together as a team and opened their eyes regarding the tough season ahead.
Black Aces 2-4 Wits Juniors
Inconsistent performance. Back four shape was poor and a lot of work is going to be needed in this area.
Black Aces 1-3 Wits Juniors
Just like U-17’s defensive shape was poor, not compact enough.
Aces next fixture will be against Supersport United at the TUT Pta West Campus on Saturday 17 March. The first game kicks off at 9am.
