After their Nedbank Cup exit, Amavarara Football Club are looking to salvage what is left of their ABC Motsepe League season.
On Saturday they hosted the Port Elizabeth-based side, Peace Makers FC, at the Dumpy Adams Stadium in what turned out to be an absolute routing for the visiting team.
The home team made their intentions clear, scoring two early goals and ending the first half 3-0, courtesy of Luxolo Lumkwana, who scored a brace, and Athenkosi Lafota.
Amavarara were pegged down in their own half in the second stanza but managed a fourth goal from a counter through Anele Thuwani. The defense of the home team was broken at the last minute, ending the game on 4-1.
Technical director Archie Dyeli said he was happy with his team’s performance and having the discipline to stick to the script. “We planned the early two goals. I asked them to settle in early and score early so that we could control the tempo of the game.”
Dyeli said following their Nedbank Cup exit they would be hoping to salvage the season having fallen to seventh place on the log, 11 points behind number one. “We aim for at least second or third place, but that is only possible if we win all our remaining matches,” said Dyeli.
