Players who impressed in Round 1 Of Women’s Varsity Football

Round 1 of Women’s varsity Football is done and dusted, kicking off with an impressive 16 goals in just four games on Tuesday. Before we move on to Wednesday’s second round clashes, here are the players who impressed the Varsity Football scouts.

Shamase twins (UJ)

Sphumelele Shamase scored a hat-trick and picked up the Woman of the Match award as UJ beat Tuks 4-0 in a convincing win. The UJ striker proved her clinical side and surely gave Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis something to think about.

However, her twin sister Thubelihle Shamase was also equal to the task, setting up two of her siblings goals. Her dribbling skills and speed caused havoc in the Tuks defence.

Princes Aphane (UL)

Just as UL football manager had indicated before the tournament, Princes proved to be one of the key players for her side, who picked up their first point in the group stages.

Her composure on the ball was a marvel to watch, and we definitely look forward to seeing more of her.

Johanna Ramanna (TUT)

The TUT striker found the back of the net once in Tuesday’s 5-0 humbling over DUT,

She was able to create good space for herself off the ball, making incredible runs that tore the DUT defence apart, catching the eyes of our scouts.

Siphesihle Dlamini (UWC)

While scouts often pick attacking players or goal scorers, it was Dlamini who impressed us in the first game of the defending champions.

The UWC goalkeeper made two crucial saves just minutes before her side scored the only goal of the net. If it wasn’t for her heroics in goal, UWC would not have collected the three points.

Round 2 of the women’s varisty football tournament takes place today (12 Oct) and these are the fixtures.

Wits vs TUT – 3pm at UJ Soweto Field A

UJ vs NWU – 3pm at UJ Soweto Field B

DUT vs UWC – 5pm at UJ Soweto Field A

UL vs Tuks – 5p at UJ Soweto Field B
