The intrepid Autoworld players on the night

Autoworld Stars squandered a two goal lead to succumb to a 3 - 6 defeat to UTH Doctors at the Olympia Youth Development Centre, Friday evening, 15 April 2016.
 
As the whistle blew to signal the start of the match, it took only a few minutes for the two teams to gain momentum as they both tried to win control of mid-field.

Playing left back, Brian Mununka cut through the middle for a square pass to Andrew Malembeka who made no mistake slotting home the opener.

The Doctors piled so much pressure, but the Autoworld team managed to thwart their counter attacks. In no time, Brian set up Claude for the second goal of the night. Misheck had not completely recovered from malaria and had to pull out in the first few minutes. This left Andrew to do all the solo runs upfront.

Towards the end of the first half, the Autoworld team was caught napping. Three goals were quickly scored by the Doctors as a result of some masterful play in mid-field. And so the first half ended 2 - 3 in favour of the Doctors.

In the second half, Autoworld made a few changes but this somehow worked against the team, with some sloppy defending. This allowed the visitors to score another three quick goals to kill off the match. Nevertheless, the Autoworld team pushed throughout the second half to make amends. But they could not find the net until late in the game when Andrew scored his second goal of the night from the edge of the 18 yard box with a cool volley finish. 

And so it ended 3 - 6 in favour of the Doctors. We’re looking forward to a re-match with the UTH Doctors’ team as they really gave us a good run!
