YB capitalises on Cosmos’ mistakes

Young Bafana Soccer Academy’s (YB) senior side came up against Cosmos at the Lwandle Astro on Tuesday 1 May, with the YB troops annihilating their opponents 7-0 thanks to a hat-trick by Moritz Wolff and two goals from Lindikhaya Magengu’s boot.

Cosmos were completely outplayed in all facets of the game, allowing YB to get into good positions at crucial moments during the match.

Despite the final score, the match was a fiercely contested tussle. YB came out guns blazing at the start, getting into the right areas and perfectly executing their passes. It must be said that this is YB’s first season as a competitive side and with each match the team seems to be making all the right strides against tough opposition.

Apart from Wolff (3) and Magengu (2) finding the back of the net, Ayabonga Ngwenze and Olwethu Baliso also got into the scoring action with a goal apiece. Attacking with confidence along with excellent and clinical defending ensured YB pinned Cosmos in their own half for the majority of the match.

Ngwenze was the first to score when he dribbled around the Cosmos ’keeper to hand YB an early lead (1-0). Playing with intent, the YB attackers dominated upfront, but it was the manner in which the defenders conducted themselves when under pressure that enabled YB to capitalise on Cosmos’ mistakes at crucial moments in the match.

Magengu netted his first of the afternoon, when Woolf deftly crossed the ball into the box (2-0), while Hendrik Meisner’s clinical cross was met with an equally accurate finish for his second goal (3-0), completing his brace in the process. Woolf opened his account from the spot when Luthando Duma was fouled in the 18-yard area (HT: 4-0).

Baliso continued where his teammates left off in the first half, when he found the back of net once again it was an assist from Woolf that led to the fifth YB goal (5-0).

Woolf’s second goal came via a pinpoint pass from Jannik Eichman

(6-0), while he converted his third from the penalty spot to round-off his team’s emphatic 7-0 victory.
