The Madibaz men’s football team proved far too strong for Vaal University of Technology in Port Elizabeth today as they won their final pool game 11-0 on the second day of the University Sport South Africa tournament.
After a draw, a win and a loss in their first three matches in the B section, Madibaz needed a strong finish to their round-robin phase.
Before the match against VUT at the Madibaz Stadium, Madibaz coach Wayne Iveson said their main priority was to win and try to improve their goal difference.
“This could be a vital factor in deciding the final positions when the last group games are played on Wednesday morning,” he said.
His team delivered his wishes in emphatic fashion, taking control of the match from the outset to lead 7-0 at the break.
They continued their domination in the second half with four more goals.
The final outcome pleased Iveson who said they had been unable to convert a number of chances in their earlier games.
Madibaz drew their opening match against Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University, but then beat University of Fort Hare B 2-0 in their second outing on Monday.
However, they suffered a setback when they went down 2-1 to Stellenbosch University this morning.
“In the goalless draw yesterday, we created numerous chances, but were just unable to finish things off,” Iveson said.
