Junior Bucs edge Cosmos in weekend youth league thrillers

Cosmos U19 and their Pirates counterparts in pre-match formalities. Pirates won the game 2-0

Jomo Cosmos and visiting Orlando Pirates Academy teams thrilled fans with good football during last weekend’s SAFA Gauteng League fixtures played out in Springfield, near Rand Stadium.

Ezenkosi juniors opened up the day’s proceedings with a good result in the U15 category, edging their counterparts 1-0, thanks to a first half strike by Chad Chauke who finished off Zuko Gxabuza’s fine cross from the right wing.

The junior Bucs, however, took their pound of flesh in the U17 division when they beat Cosmos by an emphatic 4-0 margin.

In the last game of the day, Cosmos U19 put up a resilient performance but were unable to take the tie as Pirates took advantage of two defensive errors in the first half to win the game 2-0.

The league continues on the weekend of July 27 with Cosmos taking on Panorama FC Academy.
