MOTHERWELL Academy went down 2-0 to Camper United in their SAFA Nelson Mandela Bay SAB Regional League home game at Motherwell NU 2 Stadium on Saturday.
The home teamâ€™s star player, Vuyolwethu Dinge, was tightly marked by Siphesihle Mkokeli. Camper utility player Zenande Ntyinkala played an immense role in the midfield, while Motherwellâ€™s seasoned player, Bulelani Nongongoma, created some golden opportunities for his side, but Camper goalkeeper Mbonisi Mbele seemed unbeatable.
Camper United broke the ice after Siyabulela â€œChippaâ€? Tsewana scored a beautiful goal in the 25th minute.
Motherwell responded like a house on fire but none of their efforts resulted in an equaliser.
The visiting side defended in large numbers in order to maintain their 1-0 lead.
Camper increased their lead to 2-0 after their striker, Ludwe Sonjica, rose high to score the last goal of the match in the 85th minute.
Camperâ€™s head coach, Gcobani Citwa, said that he was very happy to win over Motherwell.
â€œI am very happy to beat Motherwell at their own hunting ground. We knew that they were not easy to beat at home.
â€œOur tactical discipline paid dividends for us. I want to commend my boys for sticking to the game plan.â€?
