UWC look to beat UCT in Varsity Football derby
The University of the Western Cape’s (UWC) Football side are looking for maximum points when they face their neighbours, the University of Cape Town (UCT), in a Varsity Football Competition fixture on Monday 2 September 2013 at the UWC Sports Stadium.UWC striker - and top scorer in the Varsity Football Competition - Curtley Beukes, says the UWC side is ready to show their neighbours who the better team really is.“UWC top the University Sport South Africa (USSA) Western Cape Football log with 15 points followed by UCT with 12 points. This will be a good match to see who the best team in the province is,” he said.
Beukes says beating UCT won’t be an easy task but the UWC players will try their utmost and use their superior passing to their advantage.“Even though we have lost four drawn one and won one game during the competition, we learnt valuable lessons - such as how to strengthen our formations and perfect our tactics,” he says.
He describes one of the team’s best games against the North West University (NWU). “NWU are a very strong side, they managed to beat other sides with big goal differences but we were a good match for them despite losing 2-1 in the end,” he said. UWC will play the University of Stellenbosch in the USSA Western Cape Football competition this week before their clash with UCT (in the Varsity Football competition). “This game will serve as good preparation for the big game against UCT. We will then use that same winning spirit to do well against UCT on Monday 2 September 2013,” he says.
