NFD Weekend Review: Cape Town All Stars exceed Milano United

All Stars were the only Cape side who picked up maximum points at this weekend’s NFD encounters

Igugu Lekapa replaced Milano United at fourth position on the NFD table, when they overcame Vasco da Gama with a narrow 2-1 at Philippi Stadium on Friday afternoon. Zaid Patel got the opening goal for Cape Town All Stars 15-minutes from time, after his side dominated for the most part.

In the 85th minute Ndiviwe Ndabuka leveled matters for Vasco, however, the home side regained the lead a minute later through Mthokozisi Msomi who snatched the victory.

On Saturday, Eezy My Kinnes failed to hold on to maximum points against Garankuwa United, despite taking the lead on two occasions and dominating the match. Nasief Morris opened up the scoring for Milano in the 22nd minute with a delightful 35-yard strike from a dead-ball situation.

Mzondi Mthombeni leveled matters for the visitors shortly before the break from the penalty spot, but Milano regained the lead a minute later when Morris himself converted a penalty at the other end.

In the 68th minute Garankuwa were handed their second penalty of the match, to which Mzondi Mthombeni calmly slotted home to level the scores at 2-2.

Santos are yet to claim their first win for the year and lost 2-1 to Royal Eagles at the King Zwelithini Stadium. Meanwhile, FC Cape Town held PSL promotion contenders Jomo Cosmos to a 1-1 stalemate at the NNK Rugby Stadium.

Log leaders Golden Arrows only managed to pick up one point when they played to a goalless draw to African Warriors at the Charles Mopeli Stadium, and third placed Thanda Royal Zulu edge closer to the summit with their 2-1 win over Maluti FET College.

A resurgent Black Leopards are on a three-match winning run following their 2-1 win over Witbank Spurs, whilst Baroka FC returned to winning ways with their 2-1 win over Highlands Park.
