Cape Town - Maritzburg United
beat Ajax Cape Town 2-1 in an Absa Premiership game played at the Cape Town
Stadium on Saturday night.
As a result the Team of Choice moved up to eighth on the league standings
following their win, while the Urban Warriors stay on position 16 on the table.
Team of Choice goalkeeper Bongani Mpandle was called into action just nine
minutes into game and he gathered Ajax midfielder Ndiviwe Mdabuka's cross.
But Urban Warriors keeper Jody February was also tested in the 44th minute and
he denied Kurt Lentjies to ensure that the first-half ended goalless.
The deadlock was finally broken a minute into the second-half when Lebohang
Maboe beat February to make it 1-0 to Maritzburg - silencing the Ajax fans.
In the 66th minute, Maritzburg striker Evans Rusike unleashed a good shot from
range, but February was well positioned to make a save.
Ajax managed to restore parity through Mark Mayambela's powerful shot much to
the delight of the home crowd in the 80th minute.
But Deolin Mekoa had other ideas as he snatched a late winner with his
left-footed finish to hand Maritzburg a 2-1 win over Ajax on the night.
