PROMOTIONAL PLAYOFFS - MATCH 1 WRAP

STELLENBOSCH FC 2 BAROKA FC 2                             

The opening match of the Promotional Playoffs was played at the Athlone Stadium on Wednesday ending in a stalemate, potentially opening the door for the third side in the Playoffs – Black Leopards.

From the outset, Baroka looked the more urgent of the two sides with Stellenbosch FC looking nervous.

Baroka struck first with Kunene grabbing the 1st goal came 7 minutes before halftime. The home side were quick to respond with Jarrod Moroole scoring the equaliser from just outside the Baroka box.

The teams went into halftime level at 1-1, but there was more to come as the visitors restored their lead 10 minutes into the second half when Ndlovu whipped a great free kick past the Stellenbosch FC wall and keeper Arubi to put the Limpopo side back in front. The home side responded once more and again drew level just after the hour mark with a David Booysen header.

With no further goals coming in the remainder of the match the sides had to be satisfied with a point a piece.
