Tough lesson for the ABC team

Ajax Cape town faced off against Santos in a nostalgic rival match in the ABC Motsepe League on Friday the 8th of November at the home the Urban warriors, Ikamva.

The match was always set to have some talking points, unfortunately, the talking points became the officials. The game had all the thrills and spills, from a missed penalty, a red card to a Santos player and a red card to the Ajax Cape Town coach Dylan Deane. There were fouls that were certainly bookable offences but nothing was given.

Santos somehow managed to score a goal that clearly never went over the line, the referee was very keen to award the goal. There was also a late goal scored by Ajax which the referee pointed to the centre circle indicating goal, only for the assistant referee to overrule the referee and given a handball which baffled the players and the crowd. The disallowed goal was a clean headed goal that should’ve stood.

All in all although a scrappy affair, both crowds came in numbers and made for a great atmosphere.

Great a lesson for the young warriors, sometimes you are dealt.
