Former Sundowns Spurs player Archie Bartlett was a welcome presence in the Legends line-up and was a pillar in the team’s defence
Colville Legends showed no mercy to Macarena at the Florianville sports grounds on Sunday beating the visitors 5-0 in a regular Sol Plaatje Masters Football League fixture.
The half-time score was 2-0 with the Legends not disappointing their many spectators who had come out in droves to witness their favourite team play.
Among the throng of supporters were two regular fans Collin Fredericks and Ibrahim Landsberg who always show up at the Legends games.
Former Caltex player Kitty Wilkinson, who manages the Legends, was very excited at the team’s win. He even went so far as to say the lads ought to have netted more goals than the five they put past Macarena.
Meanwhile, former Sundowns Spurs player Archie Bartlett was a welcome presence in the Legends line-up and was a pillar in the team’s defence. Also back in the Legends fold was Rodney Gewers.
Legends at odd occasions delivered sublime episodes of football, and this was the case with their first goal. Van Heerden ran hard on the left flank and slid a pass infield where Morris Seekoei trapped and unleashed a volley that bulged the Macarena net for a 1-0 lead.
Just over 30 minutes later Milton van Heerden spearheaded another attack in partnership with Seekoei who slammed the ball into the Macarena net to go 2-0 up just before the break.
In the second half, both teams made changes to freshen up their attacks. Legends player Simon Richards got onto the scoreboard for the 3-0 scoreline; as did Pete Jacobs who further sunk Macarena’s hopes with the fourth goal taking things to 4-0.
With 20 minutes of play left Seekoei was back at the front piling some more misery upon Macarena to take the score to the super fifth goal, without a return.
Meanwhile, in another match at the same ground on Sunday, Saints blasted Crusaders 2-1 through goals scored by Nathan Rowan and Brownwyn Graaf, while Isaac Nthunya scored a consolation goal for Crusaders.
