Everything we did, our passing and ball possession was good. We dominated on the pitch and put pressure on the team. Overall we played well. It will improve as we progress in the tournament,” added Xabanisa. The opening goal scorers on the day were Olwethu Bless of UFH within 12 minutes into the match then his opponent Sandile Mbatha on the 15th Minute of the match.
