We were the better team in the end and the result could of been a lot greater.
Under 15 Academy
SOE 2 - 3 Black Aces
GS: Tete Chiweta; Thabane Cele (2)
The boys started off strong getting an early goal and controlled the game.
Overall a positive result getting the 3 points.
Under 17 Academy
SOE 1 -1 Black Aces
GS: Sihle Maseko
A much improved purposeful ball possession throughout the game, good ball rotation, good use of the entire field to stretch the opposition.
Free flowing game indeed, wherein the boys created an missed ample chances to easily win the match.
A very soft goal we conceded to allow School to egualise. Overall, a good academy game to watch!
Under 19 Academy
SOE 3 - 0 Black Aces
Played well in patches. Lost but not outclassed.
A good first half of football to watch with better interchanging movements by the boys, and better use of the ball.
Quality final passes to release players in good scoring positions were a serious achilles heel to our cause.
Clearly we still have to continue working more on the runs around the box, and most importantly the delivery of the penetrative passes.

Alberton U13 8 - 4 Black Aces
GS: Philip Assabil; Greg Bently (2); Zack Behr
We played good football in stages, but the pace and strength of a big Alberton side made it difficult for us.
We struggled to rotate the ball but we were able to beat them in 1v1 situations. A few technical errors made it easy for Alberton to get in behind.

FC Real U-15 7 - 1 Black Aces
GS: Keitu Mphomane
Controlled the game in the first 15 to 20 minutes. Conceded 3 quick goals from counter attacks against the run of play.
Majority of the goals conceded was from being outpaced and out muscled by the older and bigger opposition.
