Ajax Cape Town suffered a 3-0 defeat to Uthongathi FC in the National First Division (NFD) match at the Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon
The Urban Warriors were hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to the 2019/20 season having recorded a win and draw in their first two matches.
On the other hand, Uthongathi were playing their first match of the season and they were keen to start their campaign with a win.
The two teams launched attacks in the first-half, but they could not find the back of the net and the score was 0-0 at the interval.
A second-half which was dominated by the visitors followed and they scored three times.
Former Orlando Pirates winger Tshepo Liphoko broke the deadlock to make it 1-0 to Uthongathi a minute after the restart.
It was soon 2-0 to the visitors and this time it was Mmodi Pule, who beat Ajax goalkeeper Nick Hengelman to double Uthongathi’s lead in the 49th minute.
Uthongathi’s 3-0 victory was then sealed by Pule as he grabbed his brace with six minutes left on the clock.
