For many, the match that was the most anticipated in the opening weekend of the re-branded league cup of the Tsamaya Masters League must have surely been the big derby between the defending champions, RDP and league log leaders, City Royals.
But that match ended in a goalless draw, in what proved to be a dull affair. In fact, it was Royals’ third match in which they failed to find the back of the net, after also playing to 0-0 draws with Highland and TK Masters in their last two league matches.
Spectators at the Tlakula High School ground in KwaThema had to wait until the last match of the day on Sunday (25 June) to witness a goal-fest, as Verbal Warning assaulted Highland 7-1 in a Group D match.
This weekend’s matches will be played at Buhlebemfundo Secondary School in Tsakane Extension 11.
