African Stars started off the 2011/12 season of the MTC Premiership with a 2-0 win over archrivals Orlando Pirates at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Friday evening.
The match started off on a fast pace with both teams immediately going on the attack in an entertaining fast paced match.
Stars got the first shot at the goal when Ronald Ketjijere’s shot went over the crossbar in the eighth minute. Pirates got their chances from new captain Riaan Cloete and Ivan Makina.
Concordia College beat Delta Senior Secondary School in a penalty shootout to win their FNB Classic Clashes match in Olympia on Friday.
Concordia were the stronger of the two teams as they created more scoring opportunities in front of the goal. Delta on the other hand failed to penetrate into Concordia’s half for most of the first half.
In the second half, Delta came back into the match after the coach made some changes to the strike force. They had a couple of opportunities to score but poor finishing got the better of the home team.
