Cosmos juniors overpower Platinum Stars in Safa League


Exciting, unadulterated soccer was on display last Saturday as Jomo Cosmos Academy boys took on their visiting counterparts from Platinum Stars in Springfield.

At the end of matches played in the four divisions, Cosmos prevailed with two wins and two draws to round up an afternoon of spicy football.

The Under13s set the ball rolling and played their hearts out, but were only able to settle for a 2-2 draw. Lisakhanya Dlomo and Wonderboy Prince got the goals for Jomo Cosmos.

It was one way traffic in the Under15 category as Cosmos put up a commanding performance to win by an emphatic 5-1 margin. Khala Elton opened the floodgates before Tekano Tlhobelo ran riot with four goals of his own. Ezenkosi led 3-0 at half time.

The home team also claimed maximum points in the Under17 division after winning 4-1, thanks to a brace of goals each from Thato Sekhoto and substitute Zuko Gxabuza.

However, the visitors put up a gutsy performance in the last game of the day to deny Cosmos victory in the Under19 category as both teams settled for a goalless draw.

U13 Jomo Cosmos 2-2 Platinum Stars
U15 Jomo Cosmos 5-1 Platinum Stars
U17 Jomo Cosmos 4-1 Platinum Stars
U19 Jomo Cosmos 0-0 Platinum Stars
