Cosmos juniors dominate Bophelo Academy


Jomo Cosmos juniors made full use of their home advantage when they completely dominated visiting Bophelo Academy in a Soweto Youth League fixture at the weekend.

Ezenkosi Under13 team posted a 2-1 score line as star striker, Zuko Gxabuza and Menzi hit target to launch the winning streak.

Later on, Cosmos Under15s maintained the dominance in a closely-fought encounter when they won on penalties following a 1-1 stalemate at the end of regulation time. Cosmos pulled level in the second half through Katleho Moshoeshoe after trailing 1-0 at the break, and in the ensuing penalty shoot-out, Ezenkosi prevailed 4-3.

Cosmos Under17s also went the same route, winning 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 deadlock. Kabelo Makola had put Bophelo in front with a well-taken goal, but Luyanda Moletshe restored parity for the home team in the second stanza of regulation time.

The league continues this weekend across all centres.
