Juventus tends to deliver consistently when required, while on a good day Phutanang can be quite a handful.
The draw for the quarter-final stage of the Rehanna Moshoeshoe Social Responsibility tournament was finalised this week despite the ghost of two protest matches still hanging over the conference.
Tournament co-ordinator Archie Jack confirmed that the quarter-finals of the social league will take place this weekend at several venues around Galeshewe. He said the protests lodged by Saints for their 3-5 loss to FC Barcelona last week would at least be heard and could be finalised soon.
Jack said the second protest which was lodged by Naughty Boys for their 4-2 loss to Colville United last weekend was also due to be heard by the Association’s dispute resolution committee yesterday.
Despite these two disputed matches Jack confirmed the fixture for the upcoming weekend. Zulu Sweepers, who had a roaring time against SAPS last week, walloping the police side 5-1, will not have it so easy when taking on Colville at the Sweepers grounds at 11.30am on Sunday.
Phutanang Masters meanwhile, who had a high-scoring adventure, winning 8-7 over Aztec last week, will host Juventus at the Sweepers grounds on Sunday for their quarter-final match.
The jury is out as to who of these two teams, Phutanang or Juventus will advance to the semis. Juventus tends to deliver consistently when required, while on a good day Phutanang can be quite a handful.
The two Pescodia sides – Roodepan FC and Pescodia Masters – will meet outsiders this weekend in their respective quarter-final draws. Pescodia take on Sunshine FC while Roodepan will face off against FC Barcelona.
It has to be said that both Pescodia teams will be up against pretty tough opponents in Sunshine and FC Barcelona and you can be sure that the pressure is on for the Pescodia clubs to win their match and prove that they are the big rooster in the neighbourhood.
Meanwhile, Jack confirmed yesterday that invitations to important personages in the football fraternity to attend the Association’s end-of-year awards ceremony on December 15 at the Tetlanyo Secondary school have already been sent out. The ceremony will start at 6pm in the school’s main hall.
