Mogan Segadavan

PARK United came back twice to share the points in a 2-2 draw with Blackpool in a Nafa Premier League match played in Windvogel at the weekend.

United drew level within two minutes after Logan Freeman had given Blackpool an early lead.

Five minutes into the second half Johnetton Pokbas put Blackpool ahead for the second time, and again the lead was shortlived as United got back on level terms.

With time running out, a brave save by the United keeper prevented Pokbas from giving Blackpool maximum points.

Meanwhile there was a flurry of goals with several one-sided matches.

Glenville thumped Swallows 3-0 to retain the top spot.

Ricardo Holster, who scored a hattrick in Glenville’s 8-0 demolition of Westham in the Mala KO Cup competition, led the charge with his fifth goal in three matches. Brendan Bosman and Arthur Jordaan added one each for the log-leaders.

Two goals apiece by Dayalan Meyer and Magen August saw Fairview Rovers score a surprisingly easy 4-0 win over Stardrift on Finnis 1.

In another surprise result Shamrocks beat Ebenezer 3-1.

Bloom Callies scored the biggest win of the weekend, thrashing Ramblers 6-1.

Results: Bloom Callies 6 Ramblers 1, Saints 3 chatty 0, Shamrocks 3 Ebenezer 1, Helenvale 2 West Lake 0, Wolves 0 Hotspurs 0, Blackpool 2 Park United 2.

AN own goal helped Callies advance to the next round of the Pefa League Cup on Friday.

The defending champions were stunned by KwaDwesi All Stars and were 2-0 down at the break. However they staged a fightback in the second half with Zaaid Dolley reducing the deficit.

Unfortunately for Stars, an own goal put the game into extra time.

Dolley was on target once more to save the day for the Londt Park outfit.

Callies will face arch-rivals Hearts in the next round after they scored a close 3-2 win over NMB Municipality.

NMMU Madibaz scored an emphatic 7-2 win over Warriors.

Favourites Central Acemates scored a 2-0 win over a vastly improved Highbury to set up a mouthwatering clash against Madibaz in the next round.
